Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Clarksburg District Curriculum
In middle school, students continue to engage through unique activities. Exploration continues to be a pillar. However, the academic rigor needed to prepare them for high school is also a key piece. Students are placed into classes that will best meet them where they are in their literacy and math skills. The capstone to middle school recognizes an important developmental milestone on the way to independence. Eighth graders, along with their families and teachers, create a plan for their high school career and the courses that will support their goals.
In high school, students follow the plan they set up and take courses that are increasingly specific to the major topics of each subject. In Math, students take courses in algebra, geometry and can also take statistics or trigonometry and learn a range of skills to manipulate equations, create mathematic models, measure complex areas, perform spatial analysis, and work with statistical data. They learn how to best solve whatever type of problem is presented to them in precise terms.

Clarksburg District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Harrison County Schools puts children first. They do this by adapting to students developmental needs over time. In the early elementary years, the curriculum is structured around engaging activities. From these activities, students derive important skills in literacy and math along with social skills. Schools rely on the Common Core and West Virginia Content Standards to provide the curricular plan for all students. These are standards-based frameworks for each subject that provide clear expectations for student learning.
We currently cover the following Clarksburg-area school district: Harrison County Schools.

Students spend a large chunk of their waking hours at school and school staff know that their time at home is important, too. Therefore, the Parent/Educator Resource Center (PERC) offers a halfway point through which both parties can learn about valuable issues facing children today. It facilitates collaboration and offers training on a variety of topics.
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.

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: The Value of Social Studies
Oftentimes students are not really sure of the purpose behind social studies. Young students might memorize famous figures or important dates. Older students might be frustrated by "boring" texts that challenge their literacy skills. However, social studies is a very important and interesting subject. It is the subject that best prepares students to be active citizens: voters, community volunteers, activists, and good neighbors. They learn important concepts about politics, economics, and social change and begin to understand how social forces impact change. The concept level awareness that they gain translates in terms of their critical thinking skills. As curricula involve, look to see social studies become an ever more important part of your child's life.
