Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Big Stone Gap District Curriculum
Students begin to learn about the History of the world around them by first looking at the general history of places such as China, or Greece. As they progress they begin to look at the governments and the people that have made up the areas around them, then they expand this to include the world around them. This leaves the students to see what it takes to allow them to live the lives they do.
Biology is one part of the Science curriculum in these schools. This is approached, in early elementary years, by allowing students to observe plants and animals in their natural setting. By the middle years, students begin to learn about the cells and systems which make up each of these living things. When these students graduate from high school, they will learn about DNA, and they will go into more details on the systems. Upon graduation, these students have an appreciation for what lays under the top layers of each thing they observe.

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: Sixth-Grade Mathematics
Children build on their mathematics skills each year. So if a child has been working to level, they will be able to handle sixth-grade mathematics easily. In this grade, some teachers begin to introduce negative numbers. They also are introduced to some of the basics of algebra and build on geometry skills. They may begin to find the area of three-dimensional shapes. This allows for a lot of hands-on experience to help make this topic clear. Finally, students learn about reasoning, such as how the student got the answer. These topics may sound overwhelming but by reinforcing the ideas at home, students should be able to take on sixth-grade mathematics with ease.
