Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Westlake District Curriculum
English Language Arts from Kindergarten to Grade 12 aims to progressively help students acquire an in-depth understanding of literature and its uses, while helping to identify and explain key ideas and use rich vocabulary to illustrate the practical applications of literary text. Students are asked to recall the main ideas or themes and greater details with respect to making comparisons to plot elements. In middle school and high school, greater emphasis is placed on citing textual evidence to support key ideas.
The Kindergarten math curriculum involves an innovative research based method called subitizing, or looking at clusters or groups that represent numerals which is different than counting. Math in higher grades emphasizes representing and solving problems using algebraic functions, number and operations in base ten, fractions, measurement and data, and geometry. Middle school students focus more on ratios and applying statistics to determine real-world relationships.

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: Teaching Kindergarten Students the Basic Colors
When we think about it, our entire whole world represents so many shapes and colors. We see colors in nature, in rainbows, colors in moving vehicles and in landscapes. Children need to be taught to identify colors even before Kindergarten so that they are prepared for understanding and relating to the world around them. Every child knows that the color of the sun represents yellow while the grass is green and the sky is blue. However children can be taught to go deeper into tapping into their creative imaginations by learning pastel colors and how blended colors work. Orange and green for instance make up yellow. Red and blue produce a wonderful purple hue. Later, children may learn a deeper significance to color by learning about the chakras or energy points in the body such as green color expresses healing and love and yellow the seat of our solar plexus allows immense creativity. Learning the basic colors is only the tip of the iceberg. What is important is how children relate to their precise meaning and how they apply that meaning and significance to their lives.
