Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Bluefield District Curriculum
This focus on thinking skills serves students well as they move into the 21st century career field. Many jobs that student swill possess have not even been invented yet. Therefore, the thinking skills to imagine, problem solve, and innovate will be essential moving forward. The ability to analyze problems and determine the best or most efficient solution is one of the key goals of the curriculum. Students are also encouraged to work in collaborative groups and develop both the ability to work with others and to work independently.
Language Arts and Math underpin much of the learning that students do and both subjects are taught so that students are able to apply what they learn to other subjects. Reading is taught to encompass the type of non-fiction texts students read in social studies and science, and mathematic problem-solving strategies are drawn upon in many of the science and technology classes offered. Students ability to communicate their thinking in each subject is also an overarching goal of the curriculum.

Mercer County Public Schools is implementing the Common Core Standards. The Common Core Standards have been adopted by most states across the country. Their focus is depth over breadth within the subjects of Math and Language Arts. They describe not only the knowledge that students should have but also the thinking skills necessary to understand that knowledge.

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: How to Choose a College: The Location
When students picture their college career, they often think of the social scene. This is with good reason. There is much to benefit from the college experience: the people, the amenities, the experiences. However, students should consider their past experiences when choosing the location for their college. If a student has rarely been out of his or her area, going to a college far from home, even a couple of hours away, might be a shock to the system. If a student has traveled frequently, especially without their family, they may be better prepared for attending a college even out of state. Students also need to consider whether they want an urban, suburban or rural learning environment. While students look forward to the new experience of college, they need to consider their past experiences. Going to a college in the wrong location can lead to academic distress. This is definitely an important aspect to college decision-making that students should think about.
