Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Covington City District Curriculum
The standards for ELA are also applied to most academic courses to provide a coordinated approach to literacy. In English and Language Arts, students learn how to read, write, listen and speak in a coherent and progressive approach. There is an emphasis placed on students developing strong skills in critical analysis and research. Students are introduced to both great literature and informational text so that they are prepared for the different types of reading material they may encounter as adults.
In Mathematics, students focus in on the learning fundamental math subjects including computational skills, algebra, geometry, statistics, and proportional reasoning. The rigorous curriculum includes developing problem solving skills and the ability to apply what they have learned to higher math and to life situations. A program of continuous improvement in the instructional process assists in providing students with the skills they need to be successful in advanced education and in career pursuits.

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: Understanding Human Anatomy
There are now interactive online resources that students can use to learn about human anatomy. At the Visible Human Project, a system of knowledge compiled by the National Library of Medicine (NLM), students can view digitized three dimensional parts of the human body. The project includes more than 9,000 body sections. The site includes visuals of both the female and male body. The easiest way to use the Visible Human Project site is what is called the Guided Tour to the Visible Human. Clicking on each section produces an animation of a particular section of the body like you are traveling on a speeding capsule moving through the body. The full color animation allows students to differentiate individual organs, body systems, and bones. You can look at one section of the body such as the abdomen and follow how the liver lies in the body, being mostly on the right side but with a small section running over to the left side of the body under the diaphragm. The moving visual lets students easily see where each organ is situated within the body and in relation to other organs.
