Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Ashland District Curriculum
The Math curriculum at Hanover County Public Schools begins with students learning about counting objects in a set, making sure to give each object a separate number. After these students master this skill, they move on to addition and subtraction of objects. This leads on to learning how to create large numbers, fractions, or decimals of numbers. By the time the students graduate from school they have enough confidence to face problems that may face them in their future.
Children begin to learn writing skills, in Hanover County Public Schools, by practicing in a number of different ways. The children may trace letters in sand, salt or shaving cream, in addition to writing them out on paper. These children also learn how to join letters together to create words, and how to write complete sentences to share an idea. As they build this skill, they also learn about the different types of sentences there are and how they each convey a different feeling.

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: Four-Step Problem Solving
As children go through life, they are faced with a variety of problems. Whether it is solving an equation in mathematics, or in making a choice in everyday life, there are step that they can go through to solve these problems. The first step involves understanding the problem. This involves defining what is being asked, and seeing if additional information is needed. Next step calls for coming up with a plan. The plan may involve using manipulatives, guess and check or other strategies that the child will develop over time. The third step is to follow through on the plan. If one does not work, the child may need to try another until they come up with an answer that is logical. Step four is to look back and make sure that the answer is reasonable, are all of the conditions or requirements met and is there more than one answer. With these four steps in their toolkit of learning strategies students will be armed to solve most problems they come upon within their lives.
