Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Center Point District Curriculum
There are many electives to choose from, in addition to the core classes of Language Arts, Mathematics, History, and Science. These courses are taught on a multitude of levels, depending on the grade of the students. The State Standards of Alabama are closely followed, and the accredited schools of this county focus on instruction that is driven by assessment data, student aptitude, and performance.
In Science, teachers begin in the primary grades by developing the children’s discovery using hands-on techniques. The teaching of Science throughout the secondary years is done by engrossing the students in demonstrations, experiments, diagrams, instructional games and puzzles, the use of analogies in the relation of science to the world around us, and explanations. The incorporation of reading and writing plays a vital role in science, as well as mathematics.

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: Why Hands-On Education Works
Back in the day, many of us can remember school as sitting at our desk, alone, listening to a lesson from the teacher and then getting to work on the assignment given…with a worksheet. Worksheets today are wonderful to use, but sparingly. What works is learning by doing, especially in science and math. Research shows that students learn much more effectively by participating in small groups and actually using their hands to discover certain concepts. Whether it be an observation of a flowering plant, the creation of a terrarium, or building a model, science is best taught using this instructional approach.
