Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Silver Springs District Curriculum
Students cannot be successful without good reading skills and the writing skills that will help them succeed. Students start out in Kindergarten by learning letter recognition and sounds, as well as learning to write letters and to write their name. They learn to retell the stories and answer questions about the stories. With each following grade, the curriculum adds new skills to those learned in the previous grade. Fourth graders are beginning to write reports and create graphic organizers to group their thoughts.
The Mathematics curriculum requires students to learn numbers and operations in base ten by counting objects and by working with numbers 11-19. Students also learn measurement and data skills by starting out with counting objects and putting them into different categories, such as matching shapes, colors or size. At higher grade levels students learn to measure objects, describing the measurements and conducting a comparison with objects of different sizes.

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: Provide Hands-On Learning Activities for Your Preschooler
When you provide your preschooler with hands-on activities, you are helping them to develop fine motor skills. Remember that a child’s education goes hand-in-hand with developing motor skills, so please make sure that you do not just concentrate on teaching letters and numbers, etc. You can spray some shaving cream on the wall during bath time (anytime, really) and let your child write in the shaving cream with his finger. Another good activity is to give your child a pair of tweezers and small pom-poms that are used in arts and crafts. Let him use the tweezers to pick up the pom-poms one at a time. You can also let your child use chopsticks to pick up kernels or corn or popcorn. Help your child use scissors (always safety scissors and under your supervision), as the use of scissors develops fine motor skills and helps them to build strength in their hands.
