Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Sherwood District Curriculum
Reading is seen as a subject that reaches across the curriculum at Sherwood School district. Students use literature to help them learn concepts from exploring the school with “Pete the Cat Rocking My School,” to learning irony with “The Open window,” or conflict with “Two Kinds.” Students learn that each book is not only a doorway to reading but also a portal to information of all kinds.
Mathematics begins with allowing the students to study the materials that are used throughout the year. As they look into the blocks, beans and other materials, their minds begin to see what happens when you join sets together or when sets are taken away. This leads them to the basics of adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing. From here they expand their horizons in many ways from geometry, and algebra, to probability and calculus. These student at Sherwood School District learn to become problem-solvers by the time they graduate high school.

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: Routines for Kindergarteners
Children who have not had to hurry to meet a deadline, do not often see the need to be in a hurry to go to school. With a few subtle ideas, parents can help these children be ready, on-time, for their school day. Begin with bedtime by making sure that the child receives enough rest so that they can wake up on-time and ready to go. Generally, children of this age need between 10 to 12 hours of sleep a night. Next, help them choose the clothes for the next day before they go to bed. This makes one less last-minute decision that needs to be made in the morning. Other things to do to help them prepare are to prepare their lunch the night before and place in the refrigerator, plus do not allow them to turn on the television in the morning, this seems to slow them down and makes it harder to get them out the door. With these few suggestions, it may be easier to stay on time, without feeling rushed or out-of-sorts.
