Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Wellington District Curriculum
Wellington Unified School District has a rigorous curriculum, the Kansas College and Career Ready Standards, which is well-researched and competitive. Interventions in reading and mathematics are available to those who need them. Critical thinking skills, such as reasoning and analysis, are taught across the curriculum. There are also many access points where different subjects connect and give teachers the chance to integrate the learning that students do. This helps them to see real-world applications of their learning.
Humanities classes focus on critical and active reading and expose students to a variety of different types of challenging texts, from hard copy to digital formats, novels, nonfiction, and poetry. Students learn to write analytically by forming opinions about their reading, gathering evidence to support these opinion, and writing well-reasoned essays and making oral presentations supported by facts and evidence. They also learn how to use library and media resources for their research and presentations.

Wellington District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Wellington Unified School District strives to provide a culture of respect and collaboration for its students, faculty, staff, and parents. Students are expected to take part in their own learning, with the support of the faculty and parents. All students are given opportunities for success and are expected to reach for them. Teachers want all students to succeed, and offer support and guidance, as well as instruction, to help this happen. Students are given clear expectations of what they’re supposed to learn by the end of each year. Teachers have the freedom to modify their lessons to fit the needs of individual students.
We currently cover the following Wellington-area school district: Wellington Unified School District 353.

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.
My daughter was very self-conscious about her difficulties with the math section of the SAT. SchoolTutoring Academy’s Academic Directors created an action plan that boosted my daughter’s score and confidence level.
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: Letters of Recommendation
Most colleges require from one to three letters of recommendations from teachers who’ve taught the student junior or senior year. The question many students struggle with is who to ask. If a student knows his or her major, it might be obvious who to ask, specifically, a teacher within the field of study. So, a student who wants to major in astronomy, for example, would ask a science teacher, obviously, and maybe also a math teacher, since astronomy is so math-heavy. A future engineering major would ask science and math teachers. Students who haven’t picked a major, still don’t need to worry. A good rule of thumb is to ask a humanities teacher, who can comment upon the student’s writing ability and critical thinking skills, and a math or science teacher, who can comment upon the student’s classroom performance and problem solving ability, among other things.
