Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Starksville District Curriculum
The Scott Foresman 'Reading Street' is used in the Starkville Public School to teach Language Arts. In kindergarten the children learn the way that words are used, both in talking and in reading. They also learn phonics so that when they see a word they do not know, they can sound it out. They are provided with books for the classroom and independent reading, as well as other material to push their education forward through the use of technology. The reading skills they develop are then spread throughout other courses.
The schools use Singapore Math which in the lower grades teaches children math in concrete, abstract and pictorial ways. Beginning with manipulatives, then moving on to pictures and finally by using abstract thinking, these children progress through math. As they attend junior high, they use concrete, pictorial and visual representations, such as number lines, to learn math. After mastery the students begin to use symbolic ways of working with equations.

Starksville District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Starkville Public Schools use the Common Core Standards to prepare their students for the future. These standards allow the students to have a balanced education while allowing the teachers some freedom in how to present their subject matter. The standards follow major topics within each subject over the course of elementary and secondary education so that students gain a deep understanding of the major aspects of each core subject.
We currently cover the following Starksville-area school district: Starkville School District.

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.

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: How to Write a Thesis Statement
A thesis statement tells the reader the kind of report they are going to read: analytical, expository, or argumentative. Before a student writes their thesis statement, they need to know the direction they want their paper to go. After this is decided, create a specific statement that talks about what will be in the paper. Generally, the thesis is at the end of the first paragraph. Finally, as a student writes a paper, their topics may change, with this in mind, the thesis statement may need to be revised during the writing.
