Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Sand Springs District Curriculum
In English Language Arts, in the elementary grades, students are taught many strategies for spelling. Phonics and spelling instruction’s guidelines are provided by the Department of Education, and the teachers teach many rules of spelling to the students, such as blends, digraphs, medial vowels, consonant-controlled vowels, and exceptions. The students learn how to spell properly though lessons on individual phonics’ rules, through their practice in writing, word study cards and activities, and through vocabulary acquisition.
In Mathematics, elementary students learn how to estimate to the nearest one, ten, and hundred. They learn the rules for rounding (when to round up and when to round down), and not only estimate and round simple numbers, but other concepts as well. These other concepts include the estimation of temperature using a thermometer, length by the inch and centimeter, time, measurement of weight and capacity.

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.
My daughter was very self-conscious about her difficulties with the math section of the SAT. SchoolTutoring Academy’s Academic Directors created an action plan that boosted my daughter’s score and confidence level.
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.

Chalk Talk: How Phonics Are Used in the Classroom
Teaching phonics is very important in the elementary classroom. When phonics is taught in conjunction with other reading concepts, such as comprehension, vocabulary, word origins, onset and rhyme, and more, the students become better spellers along with becoming better readers. Some teachers have a time in the day where they teach phonics exclusively, and many have a word list to go by. Usually phonics lessons last about `15-30 minutes, depending on the teacher. Practicing spelling in isolation prepares the students for writing difficult, multi-syllabic words!
