Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Augusta District Curriculum
The Language Arts standards require students to develop important literacy skills such as reading comprehension, textual criticism, and writing and revision. Students learn to write for a specific time period and audience. They are taught ways to brainstorm and outline or graphically organize their thoughts so that they are able to substantiate the ideas they develop in the form of thesis statements. The standards also encourage students to apply these literacy skills to all areas of study.
These Math standards require students to develop core mathematics skills such as problem modeling, argument construction, and the ability to communicate mathematics concepts precisely. Emphasis is also placed on data analysis skills with students beginning early to understand ratios and proportions and using that knowledge later in statistics. The standards encourage students to use these skills in conjunction with other subjects like engineering and technology so that the applicability is clear.

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: STEM Programs
Since the passing of NCLB, U.S. schools have focused primarily on teaching students reading and math. Of course, these are both useful subjects, but together they do not develop the broad range of skills that today’s students need. That is why the increased focus on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) education is such a breath of fresh air. However, all is not ideal in the land of STEM, because STEM education has its own problems. Foremost among them is that girls, who traditionally perform well in STEM subjects in high school, are unlikely to pursue STEM education and careers after high school. Of course, not all girls need to grow up to be STEM professionals, but in order for STEM professions to be well-balanced and to represent a broad range of points of views, they must have many women among their ranks. High schools, it seems, are doing a fine job teaching girls STEM skills. Now it is up to colleges to be more aggressive in recruiting girls who take an interest in STEM subjects.
