Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Westwego City District Curriculum
The Jefferson Parish Public School District recently implemented the state mandated Common Core Curriculum which provides academic standards in English and Language Arts and Mathematics. In Mathematics, the focus is on learning core math skills including computation, statistics, algebra, geometry and proportional reasoning. Students are encouraged to use what they have learned to higher math and to real life applications. The curriculum is geared to providing students with the skills they will need to be successful.
In English and Language Arts students learn to read, write, speak and listen using correct English. Students are provided with a variety of reading materials during the educational process including literature and informational text so they are prepared for the types of reading they may encounter in college or on the job. The literacy standards outlined in Common Core are used across academic classes so that the emphasis on correct English usage is reinforced.

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: Music for Kids
Music educators report that learning about music and playing an instrument can enhance a variety of learning skills in children. Now parents who want to introduce music to their children can use the PBS website PBS for Kids Music Games to make music education fun. On the site kids will find games like Splat Symphony where Curious George offers colors and paint splats to make music. The Magical Lyrical Solarium allows children to generate song lyrics which are happy or sad or a mixture of the two and then the songs are sung back to them. Make the Band game features Martha Speaks who is in a recording studio and invites kids to change rhythms, vocalists, base volume, and instruments and then play it all together. There are a variety of Zen Musical Compositions that cover jazz, classical, blues, rock and roll, and hip hop. Kids learn about musical composition, different rhythms, and patterns while making their own choices about what to include in their musical piece.
