Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Chapel Hill District Curriculum
The standards for English Language Arts are categorized by reading, writing, speaking and listening, language, media and technology. Each category shares the same weight of importance and each category blends together as part of the integral standards. The reading standards require students to fully comprehend reading material in each grade, so as they move through the grades, they are equipped to gain more from whatever they read and have a better understanding of reading strategies as they read more advanced material.
The writing standard is geared towards student’s ability to write logically based on substantive claims, good reasoning, and appopriate evidence. Research is also emphasized throughout the writing standards, highlighting levels of written arguments, informational texts and narratives at all grade levels. Speaking and listening standards require that students’ understand increasingly complex information, ideas, and evidence through listening and speaking as well as through media.

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: Choosing A College
Choosing a college begins with doing some honest, self-searching about why you want to go, what you want out of life, what your strengths and weaknesses are. Spend some time asking your parents, teachers and peers that know you best for guidance on obtaining the answers to some of these tough questions. Choosing the right college takes time and thoughtfulness. And keep in mind in your search, that choosing a college because that’s where your friends are going, or where it ranks doesn’t take into account what’s most important - what’s the best fit for you.
