Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Apopka District Curriculum
In science classes, students study a variety of topics, including earth and space science, life science, and physical science. Kindergarten students start by exploring the solar system and basic properties of matter. As they progress, the emphasis shifts from the immediate environment to include the universe, as well as more intricate scientific concepts. Students may work in teams to practice problem-solving skills and interactive thinking.
College preparation is also a goal in Orange County Public Schools. Students may take AP and dual enrollment courses to earn college credit in many areas. Another option for those who would like to get a head start on their college education is to take specific career or technical education courses in the available industry certification programs. Studying abroad is also an option for students in the International General Certificate of Secondary Education Program.

Apopka District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Orange County Public Schools and Seminole County Public Schools provides students with a curriculum that emphasizes hands-on and project-based learning to produce well-rounded individuals. Language Arts courses, which supports other subjects, focus on reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills specifically though a variety of teaching methods. Texts become more complex as students advance through grade levels and the ability to use reasoning and apply what is learned is also enhanced.

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: How to Edit an Essay
You’ve just finished writing an essay that you’re sure will get an A from your teacher. It’s interesting, stays on topic, and flows seamlessly. All that’s left is to run it through spell-check to find and correct any tiny mistakes, right? Consider that while spell-check is a wonderful and time saving tool, it doesn’t always catch poorly worded phrase or other areas in your paper that could be improved upon. It’s a good idea to take the time to edit your paper yourself as well so that you can hand in the best version possible. The first step of editing is to read your essay aloud. Hearing how a sentence sounds may highlight areas that can be reworded. If you’ve got other essays that have been graded, pull those out as well and see which areas were praised and which were highlighted for correction. Finally, ask someone else to read your paper. Another pair of eyes will sometimes catch mistakes that you’ve overlooked. Now you’re ready to hand in your best work!
