Educating Our Parents: Understanding the DeLand District Curriculum
Students can take courses in anatomy, astrology, physics, and a wide variety of scientific areas. Many courses have a laboratory component that give students hands-on experiences with the opportunity to apply classroom knowledge in the field. Coursework focuses on identifying problems, investigating, and analyzing data. For instance, children learn how the traits of animals allow them to live in highly disparate environments. Mathematics, engineering, and computer technology are included components of science courses.
Electives give students the opportunity to develop their own interests, with some courses including internships in specific fields. Health science, human services, and hospitality and tourism courses are among the electives provided to students that can help them to further their potential careers. Electives in art, creative writing and journalism, computer technology, culinary arts, and foreign languages can be taken for college credit as well.

Each course builds upon previously learned knowledge as students advance in grade level. While the district receives many honors for its academic work, students also enjoy a wide array of co-curricular activities that allow them to develop skills in the areas of communication, leadership, teamwork, time management, and goal setting.

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: Learning Styles
The three main types of learning styles were discussed previously. Auditory, visual, and tactile learners all have different methods of absorbing information and some people can be more than one type of learner. These categories can be divided into smaller methods as well. For example, verbal learners are a combination of all three styles of learning. They may find it easier to memorize information if they can talk themselves through a process or write scripts that they can then act out. Logical learners need to understand the reasons behind the content they absorb. Creating lists with key points that help them understand how systems and topics are linked can be very helpful for them. Two other styles are social and solitary. These styles are already defined by their names; social learners prefer to work in groups and may enjoy role-playing and sharing what they’ve learned. On the other hand, solitary learners prefer to study alone and may need to have a personal interest in the topic.
