Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Summerlin South District Curriculum
Mathematics skills begin with students counting objects and learning to recognize written numbers. Students learn basic algebra skills by using objects to count, add and subtract. They also learn basic geometry skills by learning shapes and sorting and categorizing them by shape and color. Math skills become increasingly more complex in each grade, with the district goal being to prepare students to use math to analyze and solve problems presented to them, and to use these skills in real life situations.
The Literacy/Language Arts curriculum teaches reading and writing skills that are designed to provide students with skills that will be used in all other courses taken during their school years. In Kindergarten students learn the alphabet and the recognition and sounds of letters. Through the use of Phonic, students learn to sound out words. Each grade following builds literacy and language arts skills on skills learned in the previous grade. In high school, students learn critical thinking skills and writing skills across different disciplines.

The curriculum is comprehensive and builds student understanding and ability during the course of their education. It also has intersections where subject areas are taught in an integrated fashion so that students see the connections between their different areas of learning. This holistic focus gives students opportunities to demonstrate their learning in a variety of ways in a wide variety of subjects, while acquiring valuable knowledge and skills they need to achieve success. The curriculum ensures that students receive standards-based and research-based instruction that is rooted in best practices. Beyond the classroom, the district has a wealth of options for students to pursue as they begin to focus on their post-secondary pursuits.

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: The Importance of Teacher/Student Communication
One key to teacher success, and so student success is their communication skills with their students. Communication is a crucial matter for student academic and social success in school. It is so important for teachers to really listen to students when there are concerns. It is important that all personal and group communication is conducted with respect. Student do not appreciate being embarrassed in front of the class. Teachers should make themselves available to students to speak with and engage in non-verbal guidance during times of quiet work. By giving students a safe outlet, it will be more likely to come to you with problems instead of misbehaving. This type of communication shows students that they are respected and cared about and provides critical models for their future as communicators.
