Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Terrace District Curriculum
The Math curriculum builds skills in numeracy, operations, shape and pattern recognition, and ways to manipulate numbers during the early math curriculum. This introduces students to the topics they will eventually study in-depth in their algebra and geometry courses. Statistics and probability is another focus of the curriculum. Students learn how to use mathematical functions to predict outcomes, and also acquire the ability to use statistical methods to analyze data.
In Language Arts, reading, writing, and speaking are taught in an integrated fashion using both fiction and non-fiction as texts for study. Writing is emphasized as are the processes involved in editing and revising, as well as the proper use of sentence structure, idea development, and word choice to create an appropriate mood. Students work on their verbal communication skills as well, learning to use appropriate language, nonverbal gestures, voice intonation, and eye contact to engage audiences. Developing active listening skills is a central component of the curriculum as well.

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.

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: Developing Essential Literacies
Literacy is a very broad set of skills that means much more than just reading. Literacy means having a level of fluency and awareness about different text styles, and the different purposes for which people read and write. Literacy involves comprehension, analysis, interpretation, and critical thinking about the text or information read. In today's schools, teachers and administrators are looking for a broad set of literacy skills entailing math, science, technology, and global awareness. The Language Arts curriculum has been redesigned to increase the amount of non-fiction students read and opportunities to write non-fiction, analytic pieces as well. When students graduate on into college, or the workforce, they will constantly be confronted with technical or academic literature to read, and the goal is for them to have the literacy strategies to do so.
