Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Sterling District Curriculum
During the elementary years, students will develop basic literary concepts, basic chemistry, and be introduced to world history from ancient times to modern day. The elementary math program starts to prepare students for middle school and high school math. Students also learn how to work collaboratively and are exposed to character education programming in social development areas.
Starting in kindergarten, literacy is a major focus. Students learn reading through phonics and phonemics, and build their vocabularies. As each grade progresses, students work on perfecting their spelling, handwriting, and writing skills. In all elementary grade levels, the other components of English language arts are also a major focus; students graduating fifth grade will demonstrate proficiency in writing styles and techniques, grammar and mechanics, and speaking skills. In high school, students must complete state standard core literature and composition courses.

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: What to Expect in College Education Programs
Many young people today are choosing to become educators, but before deciding to pursue this route, they should understand that typical undergraduate education programs at universities are much different than most educational settings. They will be spending a great deal of time away from campus. As they progress through the semesters, they will likely be required to log more and more hours at field sites. Teaching candidates will obviously spend the most time in grade levels that match those that they will someday be teaching, but some universities may place, for instance, elementary education majors in high school classrooms and vice versa for a semester early on in students’ college careers to make sure that those are really the grade levels that they would like to teach. Field experiences usually require college students to observe and work with PK-12 students one-on-one or in small groups. Sometimes, the cooperating teacher will have teaching candidates conduct whole-class lessons.
