Chesapeake District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Chesapeake schools follow the standards set by the Virginia Board of Education. Academic progression builds yearly by previous experiences and standard, technical, and advanced diplomas are offered to graduates with various honor seals awarded for achievement. Students are assessed yearly through Standards of Learning (SOL) tests within the core subjects. Chesapeake schools offer a wide variety of classes including Honors, Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate and technology-driven programs. The objective is to combine core learning with electives that will engage students’ curiosity and enable them to make connections between the subjects which they learn about.
We currently cover the following Chesapeake-area school district: Chesapeake Public Schools.

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: Teaching Financial Literacy
Money is an important concept to master and some of the advanced principles may be difficult for anyone to grasp, it is never too early to start teaching the basic principles of money. Start children off with their own piggy bank, where they can store earned change and let them buy small items at the dollar store. Make games or charts where money can be earned for specific tasks. Help them learn the difference between the various coins and bills, which can enhance math skills. Banks even let children open savings accounts if they are co-signed by a parent until the age of 18. Libraries have great books on teaching financial skills early.
