Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Chamblee District Curriculum
Elementary students focus much of their Mathematics learning on concepts of numerical operations, computation, measurement and geometry. Mathematics learning deepens problem solving and reasoning skills to focus on algebra, analytics, and mathematical decision making that requires students to create models to help them find answers to problems. Data analysis and statistics are also a main focus of the high school math curriculum, and students are meant to develop quantitative reasoning skills.
English Language Arts learning during the elementary grades focuses on building reading, speaking, listening and language skills. Students are introduced to fiction and non-fiction and taught different strategies to make meaning from the texts they read. They learn how to use text features to derive understanding, how to recognize point of view and purpose, and how to generate writing of their own analyzing other works.

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!

Chalk Talk: Taking Notes
The first time you see class notes brought home from school, you probably wondered how they would ever understand what they wrote. Teachers usually teach their students how to take notes. However, with all the skills and concepts to be taught and learned in a school year, the actually teaching of note-taking may be minimal. Some students may take a lot of notes and some may write down only a couple of words. In the upper elementary grades through high school and college, notes are a necessity. To study for a test or exam, to write a report, or to look at when doing homework, notes can be a factor in how well your student does in any of these assignments. How can you help your child with their note taking when you’re not in class with them? Easily. Just make sure to start early in their schooling, such as in 5th or 6th grade. You can look at the notes they bring home or what they wrote down from reading a chapter and go through each one to make sure key points or a key point can be understood by your child.
