Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Athens District Curriculum
By the time students reach fourth grade, they will be expected to master multiplication, division and fractions. English Language curriculum will focus more on non-fictional complex text and group discussion. The new curriculum aims to align its teaching practices with the competing global demands of the 21st century so that students are prepared to enter the adult world and to function as capable and productive citizens.
High school students are expected to understand how to apply practically concepts like Algebra, Functions, Geometry, Number Quantity, Statistics and Probability to real life and be able to forecast situations. Universities in Ohio offer a wide range of programs for students especially in business that allow them to demonstrate applied knowledge, critical thinking and problem solving, and professional skills.

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 Classroom Management
Often many classes are so large that teachers may find it overwhelming to regulate the behavior of every student. However, regardless of the size of the class, teachers can ensure that consistent rules and guidelines are established well before the beginning of the term and are understood and reviewed by all students. Many teachers have found it useful to make sure that the seating arrangements are conducive for teaching, learning and moving around students in and out of groups, particularly for the primary levels. Classroom management is more effective when teachers structure the classroom and the actual lessons to help enhance learning for students. Teachers that promote students' physical fitness by having them take a short exercise break will help increase students' enthusiasm and prevent boredom. Appointing a leader in a group will help ensure that students' learning is kept on track and focused. The way that the materials and resources are arranged needs to be considered for ease of access and more efficient learning.
