Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Sunrise Manor District Curriculum
Kindergarten students learn to recognize and write letters correctly and to write their names. Phonics is used to teach letter sounds and students learn to sound out letters and syllables in words to recognize and read the words. Students hear stories read out loud and learn comprehension by answering questions about the stories. They draw pictures representing certain parts of the story and are able to retell the stories in their own words to develop critical thinking skills.
In high school, students read a variety of diverse literature and write in different literary forms. They learn to write reviews and summaries and use their reading and writing skills across the core content classes. They also learn how to write persuasively and informatively, and develop key research skills. These strategies in reading and writing effectively are crucial in education because these skills are needed to be successful in every class and in post-secondary learning.

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: The Importance of Parent/Child Communication
Sometimes one of the hardest things about being a parent is communication with your child, especially when s/he reaches the tween years. It is a stark reality that the burden for developing good communication is on the parent. Too many times parents start out a conversation by scolding their child, but that is really not the best place to start. Make sure that you have rules and boundaries set up and that your tween aged child is aware of them and understands them. But, parents also need to develop some flexibility with the rules when necessary. If your child has broken the rules, do not start out with a scolding. Instead, tell your child that you want to talk and begin the conversation by calmly asking how their day was and giving them a chance to explain what happened. Listen attentively, as this will show him that you really care about their feelings. Try to be understanding. Even if you still feel a discipline action is necessary, at least s/he will have seen you make the effort to listen and understand. Keep the lines of communication open and let your child understand that s/he can tell you anything.
