Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Covington District Curriculum
Geometry is one of the areas that fall under the Mathematics curriculum. This is introduced as children discover what characterizes various shapes and how these shapes can be found in everyday object around them. They then learn how to measure these shapes by their perimeter, mass and volume. As they continue through high school, these skills become the basis of geometry, trigonometry, and calculus. Students that graduate from Covington City Public School are citizens that have the knowledge to solve any problems that come their way.
The Reading curriculum begins with students learning how to read from the top of the page to the bottom and from left to right. After these basics, students begin to learn about different genres, and the parts of a story, including the author’s perspective. By the time they graduate, the students will have been exposed to a variety of fiction and non-fiction, including British literature and early American literature. With this curriculum behind them, the students will become life-long readers.

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: Fifth Grade Math
It is always good to be aware of the expectations a student is going to face each year. In fifth grade mathematics students build on the skills they previously learned, such as addition and subtraction. They also learn how to apply the order of operations in a math problem, including parenthesis. They learn how to convert fractions to mixed numbers and the other way around. Plus they learn the algebraic skill of replacing an unknown number with a symbol. These students should also be able to explain to their parents how to solve problems.
