Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Columbus District Curriculum
In teaching English, Reading, and Language Arts, the goal is to tie the skills of reading, writing, speaking, and listening together. Students learn all skills simultaneously, so that they can understand how the skills relate to and build upon each other. To further show students the relevance of the subject, teachers try to connect their classroom instruction with the world around them. Ultimately, students must become comfortable expressing themselves in both written and spoken formats, master reading comprehension skills, and expand their vocabulary.
The Math curriculum is similarly designed to emphasize key areas of learning while having a range of skills developed within each area. Algebra, geometry, statistics and data analysis, and increasingly technology are all areas of study in Math. Students develop skills working with equations, factoring and modeling, enabling their mathematic reasoning abilities.

Columbus District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Ohio Academic Content Standards form the basis of the curriculum in the Columbus city schools. Columbus City School District encourages students to go beyond this minimum through its STEM program, which prepares students for careers in the Sciences, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. The STEM Project Lead the Way helps high school students to ready themselves for college programs in engineering and biomedical sciences. Middle school students can enroll in the STEM Gateway to Technology program, which gives them a general introduction to the engineering profession. The curriculum includes units on aerospace, energy, the environment, and robotics.

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 Importance of Reading
Communication is the key to success in any field and the student who desires career success needs to master this skill. It all starts with reading, even at a very early age. Countless researchers have shown that reading aloud to a young child, and encouraging children to read to themselves as they get older, has long-term benefits. Students will expand their vocabulary naturally, become familiar with the basic structure of sentences and paragraphs, develop their imagination, and increase their attention span, and - not the least important – discover the fascinating, always-expanding world of stories.
