Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Columbia District Curriculum
The Columbia world languages curriculum includes learning activities that promote effective communication in a second language, as well as greater understanding of the cultures in which the language is spoken. Students operate on a number of levels while acquiring their new linguistic skills. They engage in repetitive and imitative activities that promote the development of vocabulary and understanding of rules of language. Students also participate in activities that allow them to develop conversational skills.
The high school physical education curriculum in Columbia focuses on skillfulness, motor learning principles, and exercise physiology. Learners take part in activities that promote the development of fundamental movements required for physical activity, such as those necessary to dribble or kick a ball, maintain balance, or make quick side-to-side movements. Students also practice various motor movements until they are able to reproduce them with mastery. Both closed and open skills are part of each student’s practice plan.

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: Three Reasons Your Child Needs to Read More Often
Reading is an essential skill that everyone needs in order to function at his or her best in society. Children who lag behind in reading skills face a number of obstacles in their adult lives, from barriers to employment to an increased risk of incarceration. However, children who improve their skills by reading often stand to reap a number of benefits. First, reading exercises our brains because of the activity required to coordinate eye movement, understand words being read, and making predictions about what will happen next. Keeping our minds active helps stave off many brain disorders, including Alzheimer’s disease. Second, reading opens the eyes of children to the world around them. They develop understanding for people unlike themselves, and cultivate a greater capacity for empathy. Lastly, reading helps children improve school-related skills such as concentration, self-control, and perseverance that will lead to greater academic success.
