Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Ruston District Curriculum
The Lincoln Parish School System is beginning to implement the state approved Common Core Curriculum. The goal is for students to be literate and confident in their skills in ELA and Math by the time they graduate so they can apply their skills in continued education or in the workforce. In English and Language Arts students learn to read, write, speak and listen. The program is progressive with students building on their skill level yearly. These literacy goals are applied in all academic and technology courses.
In Mathematics, students focus on learning computation, geometry, algebra, statistics, proportional reasoning, and measurement. An emphasis is placed on students learning how to recognize which math tools should be used to solve a problem, being able to think logically, abstractly, and quantitatively and to be able to apply what they have learned to higher mathematics.

Testimonials and Case Studies from Our Parents
SchoolTutoring Academy 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.

SchoolTutoring Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades. Test Prep Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades.
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.
