Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Strathmore District Curriculum
The math curriculum has become more focused and more rigorous so that students have strong math skills to meet the challenges of 21st learning expectations. The early learning in pattern recognition, shape recognition and measurement, probability and ratios paves the way for more advanced topics. Math studies in high school take a more complex turn, with algebra, geometry, probability, statistics, and trigonometry as some of the advanced coursework available.
Within the health and wellness focus, students devise plans for staying active and healthy, including commitments to eat right, make positive personal decisions, and respect others in the context of physical fitness. In the context of sports and play, students acquire the ability to communicate well with others, take personal responsibility for actions, and gain respect for others. Game play also allows children to learn individual responsibility, ethical behavior, and teamwork. These social skills are an important component of students’ everyday lives.

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: Methods of Teaching Reading
A common technique for reading instruction is whole-word, or sight-based, instruction. This approach involves teaching students as many words as possible that they can identify by “sight” (automatically) without the need to decode them, as many words cannot be decoded. A third technique is the integrated anthology approach, which incorporates stories from basal readers. Next, many experts and teachers advocate a language experience approach (LEA). The main goal is that everything children read allow them to make meaning. This involves students dictating a story about something that interests them, and the teacher writing it down and reading it with the class. Finally, the literature-based approach is built around fiction and nonfiction texts. Most classrooms use a balanced literacy approach that incorporates all of these things.
