Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Charleston District Curriculum
English Language Arts texts are diverse and include myths, folk stories, Shakespeare, US documents, and American literature. Students are expected to gain insights and perspective through the experience of reading. From the earliest grades, students work to build skills in argument and in research writing, and special attention is given to the development of the ability to craft an analytic presentation. Students practice speaking and listening in a variety of settings and are expected to present complex ideas in speech.
Early Mathematics standards include the development of a robust understanding of whole numbers and their use in addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions, and decimals. Middle school mathematics instruction prepares students for algebra in grade 8. The high school mathematics curriculum standards are designed to prepare students for college, and special emphasis is placed on mathematical operations and modeling for practical applications.

Charleston District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Charleston County School District (CCSD) adapts the state’s Common Core Standards with the goal of preparing students for real-world challenges. Standards center on English Language Arts and Mathematics instruction. For English Language Arts, students rise up a “staircase” of increasingly challenging and complex texts to ready them for college or career, and build argumentative writing skills from the earliest grades.
We currently cover the following Charleston-area school district: Charleston County School District.

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: Two Easy Ways to Build Reading Skills
Reading at home is linked to reading achievement at school. Not only is reading at home easy and fun, but it also aids comprehension and builds imagination. Here are two easy activities to share with your child.
1. Rhyming Fill-in-the-Blank (Preschool- 2nd Grade). Use books or poems that rhyme; nursery rhymes are wonderful for small children, and a Shel Silverstein book can be great fun with children who are a little older. Sit with your child and read aloud, making sure to read slowly and to make eye contact to show that you appreciate your child’s participation. As the child learns the story, pause at the end of rhymed lines to allow your child to fill in the blank, and cheer your child on as he or she completes the rhyme.
2. Reading While Cooking (1st-4th Grade). Many children love to help in the kitchen; they enjoy learning the rules of cooking, working with their hands, and admiring their finished product. The next time you cook with a recipe, invite your child to read the recipe to you. Cartons and containers also offer reading opportunities.
