Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Spring Valley District Curriculum
The K-5 Literacy curriculum teaches phonemic awareness, which means that students are taught the sounds of letters and how to use those sounds to sound out words by syllables. Students learn phonics, oral fluency, vocabulary and reading comprehension. Students also learn writing skills, which includes learning the process of writing, the types of writing and writing assessment. Reading and writing skills are used across the curriculum. Without learning good skills in reading and writing, students cannot be successful in school.
Students in Kindergarten learn number recognition and they work off of base ten operations, learning to count by using objects. They learn to add and subtract by removing and adding objects, using early algebraic skills. Geometry skills are used by learning shapes and sorting and categorizing them. Students learn to both write and recognize numbers. The math program is designed to prepare students for real life situations where they will apply learned knowledge.

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: Extracurricular Activities: How Much Is Too Much
Determining how many extracurricular your child should be involved in can sometimes be a difficult decision. As parents, you really need to be careful not to allow your children to become involved in too many sports and other extracurricular activities. Make sure you communicate effectively with your child and discuss together the activities she is interested in joining. How much time does he have to just hang around the house? Is homework getting completed on a consistent basis? Think about how much running around you will have to do. Make a schedule and determine what will fit and how much you and your child are willing to commit to. There is really no right or wrong answer. Everyone will choose afterschool schedules according to their own time availability and desires. Just make sure that your child is not over burdened.
