Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Spring Creek District Curriculum
Kindergarten students will learn to recognize letters, using phonics to learn sounds of words. They learn to sound out words by sounding out the letters in each syllable. They learn to recognize and write letters, being able to write their names by the time they leave Kindergarten. Students learn listening skills by hearing stories read to them and analyzing the stories by answering questions about them. They retell the story by drawing pictures that are associated with the stories.
By 8th grade, students use linear equations to represent, analyze and solve problems. They use functions and create graphical representations of problem functions. Students learn how to calculate the sum of angles and other geometric functions. Students also learn about statistics and probabilities. By developing these skills, a range of quantitative, abstract and logical reasoning skills are built for the students.

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: Planning a Successful Parent/Teacher Conference
When planning a parent/teachers conference, teachers need to remember why they are scheduling the conference. The purpose of a parent/teacher conference is to communicate with parents about the progress of the students. Perform some strategic planning at the beginning of the school year. Teachers need to make sure that they take the time to get to know each student. Keep good written logs about students and their progress, or problems the y are encountering. If teachers keep the parents involved throughout the school year, the conference will run much more smoothly. Teachers also need to tell parents if their child is having a problem in any area. It is up to the teacher to encourage parental involvement in the problem and its solution. Teachers need to keep the meetings going on a positive note and give praise for good work.
