Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Alexandria District Curriculum
In Mathematics focuses on strong algebra skills, relating concepts to practical world-oriented mathematic skills. Science is developed through inquiry and research at an appropriate grade level in an attempt to help students understand and apply principles to the world around them. Social studies is explored through Socratic seminars and inquiry-guided learning in addition to direct instruction. World languages are also a focus in the curriculum, and students gain the ability to listen, read, write, and speak in the target language.
Alexandria City Public Schools offers multiple opportunities for talented and gifted children throughout grade-levels. They also have distance learning, special education, Advanced Placement, and International Baccalaureate classes to provide an array of academic choices to students who are seeking greater challenges or the chance to specialize their studies.

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: The Importance of Reading to Children
Reading is an integral skill in this century for any learner. It is used in every classroom, online, and will be a part of any college course of study. In today's busy society where it can be challenging to take the time to sit down on a couch and read to each other, it is becoming even more important. Reading can be complex and it may be challenging for children to correct issues with pronunciation or learn nuances without spending time discussing these with a mentor. With everything going digital, it is still important for children to feel, touch, and speak the words from a page. Start by setting out small books or magazines in common places of your home. Spend 10 minutes a day simply sitting with your child and reading with them. Help them learn by pointing to the words as they are spoken so they connect the sounds with the characters. Let your child pick the books they read and help you turn the pages as they will be more interested.
