Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Shawnee District Curriculum
In English Language Arts in the early primary grades, the students will develop phonological and phonemic awareness. The teacher instructs the students how to count syllables within the words and to manipulate beginning sounds, ending sounds, and medial vowel sounds. The students are exposed to many types of rhyming words, first being one syllable words, and then multisyllabic words. Blending the phonemes of the word sounds to create one word is also taught, and making the sounds of the phonemes in isolation is also instructed.
In Mathematics, the students in grades K-12 are taught how to reason and think logically. Using grade-appropriate materials, such as manipulatives or other small items that can be used during hands-on instruction, the students are taught to use inductive and deductive reasoning skills in many aspects of the mathematical curriculum. The students are also taught how to reason spatially, logically, and proportionally in the middle to later years of math instruction.

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: Phonemic Awareness: How Does it Help Beginning Readers?
When small children first experience being read to, they enjoy the story without really knowing the concept of word. Once school begins, the students then learn to look at print differently. They learn about what makes up a word, each individual sound, and from this knowledge they begin to understand how reading is accomplished. When manipulating the individual sounds, or phonemes, through rhyming, onset sounds, medial vowels, ending sounds, and repetition and the substitution of sounds, they learn great knowledge about how words are formed, and there foundation of reading begins to build.
