Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Sulphur District Curriculum
The new Common Core Curriculum that has been approved for use in the state of Louisiana and most states in the country will be implemented across the school district in the next couple of years. Common Core provides guidelines and sets academic expectations for students in the areas of English and Language Arts and Mathematics which are designed to build this knowledge over the grade span.
In preparation for the implementation of Common Core. All coursework in the area of English and Language Arts and Mathematics are being targeted for improvement with an emphasis on reading, writing, and core math subjects. In light of this focus, the educators are aware that students need elective and career-oriented courses that help them connect this core learning to their interests. One area of growth in academic offerings is technology, and students have opportunities to learn networking, programming, and design skills.

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: Interactive Art Games for Kids
All kids enjoy art and being creative. Now kids can visit art website where they are invited to play art games or learn to paint or draw with the help of a computer. One such website is dedicated to the pop American artist Jackson Pollack. On the site at Jacksonpollack.org kids can see art that has been inspired by the artist Jackson Pollack including works that display his style of using paint spatter, paint drips, and even flinging paint at that canvas. The site also offers kids the opportunity to try this type of painting for themselves with the help of an interactive computer generated game. By moving the computer mouse children can create their own works of art and even change colors as desired. The interactive art design is also available in apps for use on other mobile devices such as iPhones and notebooks.
