Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Sherwood District Curriculum
Educational standards were developed so that teachers would have guidelines for instruction and students at each grade level would master essential concepts. There are many standards that need to be instructed. For example, in second grade, there are over fifty standards in language arts which students need to achieve. The Arkansas Department of Education monitors the implementation of all standards and regularly assesses students in grades K-12.
Teachers plans for each unit by specifying the standards that need to be taught and which assessments to use to determine if the students have mastered the essential skills. The districts are taking many steps to make sure that all students are progressing, including hiring math and literacy interventionists, implementing college and Career Readiness Standards. These standards ensure that students have the communication and problem-solving skills that grow out of a strong based in Math and English.

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: Resources for Budding Astronomers
Most school districts schedule two conferences each year to give parents the opportunity to ask questions and determine their child’s progress. Discuss with your child if there is anything he or she wants you to discuss with the teacher. Before the conference, write down what you want to talk about so you don’t forget anything. Remain on the topic of your child and his or her performance. Write down topics that were discussed so that you can talk with your child about them. It is important that your child understands that you and his or her teacher are working together as a team. Participating in conferences and other school events will help your child know that you are interested in his or her success!
