Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Sparks District Curriculum
Early math learning is integrated, meaning concepts of algebra and geometry are taught side by side and emedded into students’ curriculum. In high school, these topics are broken out into separate categories. In addition to Algebra I & II and Geometry, students are encouraged to choose from advanced courses including trigonometry and precalculus in order to prepare for college-level math.
Science standards draw heavily on understanding the nature of science and the scientific method, allowing students and teachers to work toward their interests. Skills like making observations, taking measurements, critically evaluating data, and communicating their findings are emphasized in elementary school, while middle and high school students are required to understand larger concepts like relationships between data sets, design experiments, and create and use charts, tables, and illustrations.

Sparks District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Washoe County School Districts follow a strict curriculum based on the Nevada Department of Education’s benchmarks and indicators as well as the Common Core State Standards in Language Arts and Mathematics. This curriculum is rigorous, but also focuses on music and arts as part of a balanced educational approach. The overall curriculum provides a scaffolded approach to learning whereby students gain skills during elementary school which they will use throughout their education.
We currently cover the following Sparks-area school district: Washoe County School District.

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: Hands-on Learning for Success
No two children are alike, and all students have their own preferred learning methods. Some students can simply read a textbook and understand everything about a subject, while others need a detailed explanation or a video to understand. However, all students can benefit from hands-on learning activities and parents can support this hands-on learning by letting their children “get their hands dirty” at home. The basics of mathematics and chemistry can be seen when making pancakes, the principles of art come to life mixing tempra paints on a paperplate, and life sciences appear as a seed sprouts on the windowsill. Parents can show their children that everything is a learning opportunity and foster their natural curiosity by watching for their interests and supporting them with fun activities and age-appropriate books on the subjects their children love.
