Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Wichita District Curriculum
In Language Arts, teachers instruct using the Common Core State Standard Initiative, as well as the Lexile Scoring Program. This provides a consistent and clear understanding of what students need to learn in each grade in order to succeed not just in school, but also in life. It is anchored in the expectation that students will meet certain grade-specific requirements in order to succeed at the next level, placing an emphasis on spelling, grammar, and comprehension. Teachers also have the ability to use secondary materials, such as flip-books, workbooks, and flip cards.
Science instruction adheres to the same Kansas State Department of Education Assessed Standards and provides a strong combination of conceptual learning and in-class experiments. Students often have the ability to conduct their own research and are expected to report their results in a structured manner.

Wichita District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The area districts teach Math, Reading, Social Studies, Science, and Writing according to the Kansas State Department of Education Assessed Standards. The Math program places an emphasis on a student’s ability to explain why a certain mathematical formula is true, not solely that it is true. They also believe a sign of educational maturity in math comes when a student is able to explain the rule behind each procedure. In this way, a truer understanding of the principles of mathematics is accomplished and great success rates are achieved at higher levels.

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: The Importance of Correct Spelling
With schoolchildren using the internet and their smartphones to communicate now more than ever, it is important to realize the decline that this is having on their ability to spell correctly. The Department of Education has recently expressed concern over students using IM shorthand in class and in actual school papers. While the English language is, and always will be, a fluid language, a standard must be upheld. And that standard-bearer must be the public schools. This is where the next generation of thinkers and creators will learn the skills they'll need to navigate the world. Don't we owe it to them to teach them the gift of clear and correct communication?
