Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Ridgeland District Curriculum
Children are taught from the beginning how to use mathematics in their everyday lives. They learn how to count, while remembering that the last number is the quantity of the objects being counted. These skills are built-upon as the children progress through the grades and become familiar with protractors, rulers, calculators and other tools to prepare them for the advanced math, such as algebra, which they encounter in high school.
Reading also begins on the first day of school. When they begin their first day, children become aware of how to answer questions concerning books that are read to them in class. This prepares them to look for understanding in their own reading as they advance through the grades. By the time they are in sixth grade, Ridgeland Public School students become aware of different genres such as mysteries, plays and fantasy. They also learn how to plan, revise, clarify, edit and publish their own written projects.

Ridgeland District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Ridgeland schools include two elementary schools, one middle school and a high school to help them educate, challenge and inspire their students. These goals are reached by teaching to the children’s interest, while preparing them for higher order thinking. The Common Core Curriculum provides the structure for developing well-rounded learners by emphasizing literacy and hands-on math across the curriculum.
We currently cover the following Ridgeland-area school district: Madison County Schools.

SchoolTutoring Academy Increased My SAT Score By 200 Points
My son’s math marks in high school have always been weak so I found it very beneficial that his ACT tutor worked on solidifying his fundamentals while prepping for the ACT.
SchoolTutoring Academy gave my daughter the confidence she needed to boost her SAT score Thank you!
SchoolTutoring has played an important role in improving our son’s confidence and attitude towards school. His grades have also improved steadily throughout the school year.
My daughter was able to improve her test scores after a few months of tutoring with SchoolTutoring. However, while raising test scores is great, the real payoff is in the self-confidence that she gained.
I just wanted to send a quick note to say thank-you! My son is very impressed with his tutor and looks forward to each session. What’s particularly amazing about this is our son has never really looked forward to math or school for that matter!
We are so happy with the results of your tutoring program and academic support. Homework time was such a stressful evening for the entire evening before we brought your tutors into our home. Thank you for all your help!
Our daughter, a first grader, struggled with basic reading and handwriting. When she began with SchoolTutoring she was almost a year behind her class. Within a year of being enrolled, she is reading above her grade level and has the confidence to match.

Chalk Talk: Teaching Responsibility to Children
When asked where their homework is, or if they have any papers from school, many students will answer “I don’t know.” All children need to be taught how to be responsible for their own property early in life. One way to help teach them to be responsible is to give them post-it notes to place on a textbook when they are assigned homework in that subject. When it comes time to gather materials together, they have a visual reminder of which books to take home. To make sure this work makes its back to school the next day, create a school box where the child can place completed work. When it is time to go to school the next day, one quick glance, by the child and the parent, shows if anything is forgotten.
