Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Danville District Curriculum
In the Language Arts curriculum, vocabulary acquisition is key. Students are expected to be able to communicate effectively in speech and writing. In Science classes, students are guided to an understanding of natural phenomena and their causes and effects. In Math, students are expected to solve problems effectively using math and logic. In History, students appreciate the past for its potential to improve the future, laying a framework for conceptual knowledge of the world and its events.
Both inside and outside the classroom, students are encouraged to express themselves creatively as well as respond to the creative expression of others. Students work cooperatively with others and are expected to treat others with empathy and respect. Students should be able to set personal goals and develop plans to achieve them. In the end, one of the primary goals of the curriculum is to develop skills and qualities in students that enhance employability as well as recognizing the need for new knowledge and the ability to seek it out.

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: Factors to Consider When Choosing a College
The college search can be a confusing and overwhelming process. There are so many colleges; how can you differentiate between them? Some students will look at things like sports they like to watch or even the college’s colors. As difficult as it may seem to understand for applicants, these aren’t the main factors they should consider when choosing a college. Instead, look at the academic environment. What are the class sizes? How accessible are the professors? Will you be able to succeed there? In order to truly answer these questions, a student must evaluate him or herself as a learner. What are your learning needs, and will the college support them? Of course, cost is a major factor, but these other issues can be addressed while taking cost into account. Quality of life is also important, since you’ll be living at the college for four years, but remember that you’re there to learn and must be able to do so successfully.
