Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Vadnais Heights District Curriculum
Early in the reading curriculum, students learn the relationship between sentences, paragraphs, and chapters, and identify how authors are able to make those separate components mesh into a cohesive story. They learn about the different literary devices used in fiction and how to navigate text features found in non-fiction. These help to build their analytic skills so that they can determine the purpose of a text or interpret complex literary fiction. This is also a major contributor to the development of vocabulary skills.
Art students in Vadnais Heights participate in a curriculum that includes an in depth exploration of the media arts. Students examine various elements in media arts, including sounds, time, space, motion, and sequence. Common elements of media arts, including repetition, contrast, and unity are explored as well. Learners also engage in an analysis of different genres of media arts. Documentaries, narratives, and abstract works are evaluated for their similarities and differences in the manner in which they present information and style in which they are created.

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: Combating Perfectionism is School
Make comments about their interests or behaviors that are not achievement-based or school centered. Teach them valuable lessons about success, such as mastering new skills instead of receiving a perfect test score. Allow them to fail, and help them through it. Discuss what they learned through their mistakes and tell stories about your own shortcomings. Give children balance. Working on homework and projects incessantly is not healthy. If the problem continues or seems difficult to correct, discuss the issue with a teacher. Above all, listen for warning signs of anxiety and address them immediately. Support comes from many avenues, and you do not have to do it alone.
