Educating Our Parents: Understanding the West Memphis District Curriculum
A core curriculum consisting of English, History, Math, Science and Languages is offered to students. Each area is concentrated on key topics, such as Algebra in Math, or writing and literacy in English, and these areas are developed and expanded upon for students each year. From the basis provided in elementary school in fundamentals, students become able to reason quantitatively, read for meaning, and write original, analytic essays.
West Memphis School District uses literacy and math coaches to monitor the curriculum, improve instruction, and increase student learning. Although the Arkansas Department of Education has mandatory annual assessments to monitor student progress, West Memphis School District’s students are regularly tested with additional assessments. Based on the testing results, instruction before school, during the school day, and after school is used to provide needed support.

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: Helping Student's Become Writers
In addition to reading and mathematics, writing is also an extremely important skill that needs to be developed when children are young. Even though computers have made writing assignments for high school and college easier, children still must learn grammar, spelling, and punctuation rules. Journaling is an easy, creative plan to help your child improve his/her writing skills. Allow your child to choose a notebook they like, and get one for yourself in the process. Set up times to sit down and write together. Both you and your child will get a lot out of the shared experience.
