Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Whitney District Curriculum
In Math, students must be able to make sense of the problems presented to them and they must be able to continue until they solve them. Students must learn to reason and use symbols to represent mathematical equations, using different properties, such as addition, subtraction, etc. to solve the problems presented to them. They must know how to evaluate problems, using previously learned constructions to make conjectures that lead to solving the problems. They use critical thinking skills to critique the arguments of other students.
In Language Arts, students learn to read text and recognize key ideas and details of the reading, picking out the central theme. The next requirement is for students to learn craft and structure, which means that they learn to interpret and analyze what has been read, as well as learning to see how a specific point of view or purpose can affect the way the text is written. The third goal of the curriculum is to ensure that students understand content presented in different styles.

Whitney District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The curriculum used in the Clark County School District is comprehensive and focuses on core academics while also providing students with opportunities to pursue subjects of individual interest. The state standards for Language Arts/Literacy are intended for the development of curriculum that will make lifelong learners of students. The goal of the Math curriculum is to ensure that students can not only complete mathematical equations correctly, but that they also develop the skills to justify, according to the students’ level of mathematical ability, why a mathematical statement is true and be able to explain the reasoning.
We currently cover the following Whitney-area school district: Clark County School District.

- Henderson Bird Viewing Preserve - The Henderson Bird Viewing Preserve is a great place for watching birds and dragonflies. There are several trails available for hikers to watch the different species of birds that frequent the area. Take your binoculars and enjoy a day of exercise and the opportunity to enjoy the environment. See how many birds you can identify and, when you get home research to see how many facts you can learn about them.
- Lion Habitat Ranch - The Lion Habitat Ranch allows visitors to get a close-up view of the lions. Those who go at noon have the joy of watching the romp and play with 1 year old lion cubs. The ranch is open Friday through Monday. This sounds like a great place for a field trip or a family outing.
- Nevada Vintage Race Car and Aviation Museum - This is a small museum in Las Vegas that has on display some winning race cars and a vintage war plane. The owner has a lot of memorabilia and knows a lot of history that he will impart to you. Due to the small size of the museum, it is not recommended for large groups. It would be a great choice for a family outing and it is free.

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: How Can I Help My Reluctant Reader?
There are several strategies parents can use to help a reluctant reader, but first you have to do some investigating to determine where the problem lies. You need to watch your child when s/he is reading. If s/he doesn’t want to read at all you will use a different strategy than if s/he starts reading willingly, but then gives up out of frustration. When children learn to read, they learn to sound out words by letter and syllables. Does your child try to sound out the words s/he is attempting to read? Maybe s/he doesn’t seem to know how to sound out the words. Maybe s/he is having trouble knowing the meaning of the words or maybe the story is not something that interests her. Sometimes children just get disinterested in reading at a certain age, but they pick up the desire to read again when they get older. If s/he just can’t seem to get it, you may want to seek out a reading specialist. Work with the school and the teacher to find a specialist that can help her. Ask why s/he doesn’t want to read, and if s/he says it’s boring, go to the Library to help pick out a book at the correct reading level on a subject of interest.
