Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Columbia District Curriculum
Challenging and rewarding, the Columbia Public School district curriculum serves as a springboard for students to succeed and thrive in a globally diverse future. The curriculum supports individual interests, recognizing that each student is best served by differentiated learning styles. Early grade focus in Language Arts lays the foundation with solid reading skills, word recognition, and vocabulary building. Multidisciplinary analysis of literature and artistic expression gives students the skills they need to think and work creatively.
Whole numbers and number facts in early grades emphasize the importance of mathematical skills in every day applications. In middle and high school, mathematics courses diversify into algebraic relationships, geometry, statistics, and data analysis. The interrelation between math and science is reinforced from early grades through high school, emphasizing student inquiry with course material that places them in the shoes of real scientists.

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: Making Lists - Fine-Tuning Your College Decisions
When faced with a college decision, weighing the pros and cons of each school can seem daunting. When in doubt, sit down first by yourself, then with your parents, guardian, or guidance counselor, and make a list of your options, and how they differ. Choose schools that are close to home, and farther away. Think about big universities and smaller liberal arts colleges, as well as ways to make small colleges big—such as those that have partnerships with larger universities or other schools in a consortium. Many large universities offer smaller learning environments, such as first-year programs or special interest programs. Think about cost, but don’t be afraid to look into both public and private schools.
