Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Southaven District Curriculum
The Southaven Public Schools believe in promoting reading skills beginning in kindergarten and continuing through graduation. In kindergarten, children are introduced to rhymes as they learn their colors and the names of the items around them. This progresses so that by the time students enter fourth grade, they are using historical documents to become educated about the area around them, as well as the state and the country. Reading continues through graduation as students discover how literature and journal writing help them learn how to express themselves and aids in the evaluation of many works from many sources, including the electronic media.
Mathematics is also an area of the Southaven Public Schools which use literature to help teach or enforce concepts that they learn throughout their educational career. The schools use a variety of works including mysteries and newspapers to achieve this goal. They also use resources which tie math and science, as well as teach the students how to find math in food servings, the home, or even sports.

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: Questions to Ask at Parent-Teacher Conference
As the time of parent-teacher conferences, parents and teachers are aware that there is much information to share in a limited time. It is a good idea to have a list of questions or concerns to ask the teacher, so when it is time for the conference to end, the information that was desired is at hand. One question to address is what educational material is the student expected to learn in the current school year and how will the student be evaluated? It is usually a good idea to find out also if the teacher is flexible when it comes to teaching different types of learners, such as visual, auditory, or tactile. Another area to query the teacher about is what the expectations are as a parent to help the student have a successful year. With these three ideas as a starting point, parents can then further the conversations and have a successful conference and school-year.
