Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Sidney District Curriculum
The Mathematics curriculum relies upon learning objectives such as the communication of the algebraic conceptions using a variety of representations to problem solve, increase reasoning abilities, and make real-world connections. The learning of relationships among numeric and linear patterns, such as in geometry, and analyzing these patterns by using graphs, tables, and data sets is also mastered within the K-12 standards of this subject.
The Reading curriculum in grades K-12 covers material which includes new vocabulary acquisition and using knowledge of the structure of words and word patterns. In Reading, the students become more familiar with root words and word origins to figure out the meanings of confusing words. The use of context clues to help discover new words within a wide variety of text is also taught to aid in the comprehension of the text. These build towards deeper analytic skills and students are able to independently evaluate various text sources.

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: Using Context Clues in Reading Instruction
Context clues help ensure the students understand what they are reading. Once students master the beginning sound and word syllables, they are able to begin using context clues. When a word is unknown at first, the student can think about what has been read, look at the surrounding text of the word, and look at the beginning sounds to figure out what the word says. Also, when a student does not know what a word means, instead of looking up the definition, the reader can look ahead at the text and read on. By using the future text and the past knowledge of what has been read, along with looking at any illustrations on the page, the student is able to figure out the meaning of the word.
