Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Sheridan District Curriculum
Early math instructs students in fundamental concepts of numeracy, pattern recognition, shape recognition and measuring techniques. Students learn to add and subtract whole numbers, decimals, and fractions with the same denominator. In the beginning of middle school, students expand these skills up to billions for whole numbers, and thousandths for decimals. They learn to add and subtract decimals as well and review simple multiplication and division skills.
By high school, the math expectations take on a new level of complexity. Students are expected to take full year courses in algebra and geometry and learn in-depth techniques for problem-solving in each topic. They are expected to master algebraic expressions, work with different types of equations, and to be able to apply formulas to solve more complex problems. They are also expected to develop math literacy, be able to work with word problems, and to communicate their math thought.

Sheridan District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Sheridan School District follows a comprehensive instructional plan that has been developed in a progressive fashion, moving students through an ever-deepening path of learning in all core subjects. The curriculum specifies what students need to know and be able to do each year, but does so in broad terms so that teachers can deliver the lessons according to the learning requirements and styles of their students. There are also opportunities to integrate different subjects so that students are able to apply their knowledge broadly and see how it connects and is relevant in the real world.
We currently cover the following Sheridan-area school district: Sheridan School District.

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: Learning Over the Summer
Students are worked hard throughout the year, and the learning expectations placed on them are becoming increasingly rigorous. Summertime offers a needed respite, but should also be well planned for so that children are engaged in activities that are both interesting and valuable to them. Most communities offer different types of summer camps - traditional, arts based, science and technology camps, and many outdoor learning experiences. Some students may not want to go to camp and for them, looking for other opportunities - volunteering at an animal shelter or community organization - can build skills that will help them in the long run and give them a sense of what the professional world is like. The options that students pursue should be based on their true interests and allow them a chance to explore new areas of learning.
