Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Camden District Curriculum
Kershaw County's high schools offer English elective courses such as Speech, Journalism, and Newspaper Production. Students can take College Prep courses in English or follow an Honors Pathway that eventually has students taking AP English starting their junior year. The district also offers an SAT prep course for sophomores, juniors, and seniors who plan to attend college. In these courses, students critical reading and writing skills are emphasized. They read a variety of literary classics and non-fiction works, and develop the ability to analyze a range of texts. They also learn how to write analytically about the texts they are reading.
Students who take general math courses follow this sequence from their freshman to senior year: Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2, and Probability and Statistics. Students who follow a College Prep sequence may take either Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2, and Pre-Calculus or Geometry, Algebra 2, Pre-Calculus, and a college-level Probability and Statistics course. Students who are on the Honors Pathway take the classes as follows: Honors Geometry, Honors Algebra 2, Honors Pre-Calculus or a college-level math course, and Honors Differential and AP Calculus.

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: Commonly Confused Words
Students often mix up commonly confused words. One such example is "pastor" and "pasture"--the former meaning a clergyman and the latter meaning farmland where animals graze. "Patience" and "patients" are commonly mixed up. Patience means to be calm even when dealing with a difficult individual or situation. Patients is the plural form of an individual who is seen by a doctor. Another example is "peek" and "peak"; peek means to take a quick, sneaky look, while peak is the high point of something (e.g.: of a mountain). It becomes even more complicated when you throw in "pique"--to stimulate interest. One more: "Perspective" refers to a person's viewpoint of something, and "prospective" is synonymous with words such as probable and likely to happen.
