Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Blair District Curriculum
Students in grades K-12 learn a great deal in reading, as it is a spiraling curriculum. Standards include: using many genres of literature to evaluate, analyze, and make connections and inferences. The students are taught to master these skills using different genres of text to aid in critical thinking skills and to reinforce comprehension. Branching over into history, a variety of nonfiction is read, such as historical texts, biographies, and books on varying cultures are analyzed.
Mathematics, which also builds on foundations, has standards that contain goals such as showing relationships among complex numbers (secondary level), exploring irrational numbers, comparing and contrasting numbers that are complex, as well as their properties, and the demonstration of operations using real numbers. The development of mathematic literacy, understanding of practical applications, and ability to communicate mathematic thought are all central to the curriculum.

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: Technology Within the Schools
Nowadays, when students go to school, they do not only sit in class all day, every day, and listen to lessons. Many lessons have technology incorporated into them, and this not only helps the teacher with the delivery of content, but the students as well. Technology usage, such as iPads, computer labs, laptop mobile labs, and Smartboards keep the students engaged and their minds enriched. Many schools have funded a variety of technology tools, and the students are enjoying school much more as they discover much more!
