Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Buford District Curriculum
Mathematics learning throughout all grades involves developing and improving number sense, computation, measurement and spatial recognition. In middle school, students begin to deal with greater level of complexity within math problems and must become familiar with working with word problems. Problem solving, logical and quantitative reasoning skills are emphasized as students make connections between concepts and real-world application.
English Language Arts learning focuses on the skills of reading, speaking, listening and language through the use of informational themes, short narratives, conducting research, media viewing, writing and presentation. Students are continuously using these elements through K-12 grades, not only as part of the English Language Arts curriculum, but also integrated into other core subjects, such as Science, Social Studies and Technical Education (9-12 grades).

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: Balancing School and Extracurricular Activities
Students are in school most of the day, bringing home with them probably a few more hours of school work. In between that, your child may be involved in afterschool activities, such as sports, clubs or league. At the time your child does get home from their activity, knowing schoolwork (i.e., homework) has to be done can be daunting to them as well as take away from possible family time. Every family has their own method or way of managing the coming, going and doing of each family member. Some children start their homework while dinner is getting ready, others clean up, shower, get their things ready for the next day to leave homework for after dinner. As a family, students and parents should work together to find the right balance. It may take trial and error once a school year starts. A day or week may not be the same as the previous, so finding a routine may be hard but it will be worth it.
