Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Calhoun District Curriculum
The Math curriculum focuses on number sense, computation, algebraic thinking, measurement and spatial recognition, and data analysis. Students are taught skills in each of these topics that help them solve various problems, and are expected to attend to precision, be able to determine the most effective computational tool to be used in problem-solving, and how to communicate their mathematical findings.
The Language Arts curriculum oversees the skills development involved with reading, writing, critical discussion, research, and media viewing. Students are taught how to recognize point of view and authorial intent, they learn how literary devices help readers derive meaning from a text, and are asked to write analytically in response to the texts they have read. Critical awareness developed through investigating literary and non-fiction works, and writing analytically about them are central to the curriculum.

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: Number Sense
As students move from elementary to middle school, they are expected to know and apply the concept of numbers to amounts, money, portions, among many other applications. Middle school is where the true application of number sense is to be demonstrated. However, it is also a time where students struggle in this area. Number sense is what a number truly means. Teachers and tutors can offer help and resources to get students through this transition. As a parent, you too can help your child understand truly what a number means. Student understanding comes from application. Students have to be able to know that half of a pizza is part of a whole, that the amount of slices in half a pizza will feed only a certain amount of people. Similarly, having $4.00 may not be enough to buy 1 magazine, but if he or she has $10.00, they may be able to buy 2 magazines. Practicing such applications and number usage will help students understand how to use numbers in ways they are expected to as they move through grades as well as in the real-world.
