Educating Our Parents: Understanding the St. Peters District Curriculum
With an eye toward future success, the St. Peters area district curriculum allows students to create a path toward college and workplace readiness. Recognizing that every student learns in his or her own fashion, differentiated learning styles are a key component of district curriculum, tailoring learning for student achievement. Language Arts begins in early grades with word recognition, reading skills, and a strong vocabulary base.
Mathematical skills are fostered in early grades with integers, whole numbers, and pattern recognition to strengthen student understanding of math. Understanding how numbers are important in every day application is also a critical component of early grade math skills, allowing students to embrace math as an enjoyable and relevant subject. In middle and high school grades, math courses broaden their scope into geometry, statistics, algebra, and research analysis. Math and science goals are intertwined from early grades through high school.

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: Music and Emotion
What is it that draws so many people to the fundamental joy of music? If we took music away, would we be able to survive without it? Surely we would, but it might not be a very pleasant existence—especially if we had experienced music before having it removed permanently. According to Maslow’s Hierarchy of Human Needs, there are several layers of personal and biological needs we each need to consider. A physiological need such as breathing is a basic need that we could not live without. Higher on the pyramid are safety and security needs, the desire to be within a family group or to gain knowledge. Music can fall into a category high on this pyramid of needs-the aesthetic needs. Aesthetics involve the senses of beauty, and can include the desire for music and musical appreciation as an art form. However, music can also fall under the lower—and more fundamentally necessary—category of physiology, if it is considered a sensory need.
