Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Dickson District Curriculum
Students at Dickson County School are exposed to the world of literature through the English curriculum. They are encouraged to read independently and find books that they like and use those as a basis for independent reading logs and written analysis. Students also learn about literary devices and how authors use these devices to help create meaning in their text. In reading non-fiction, students learn to read for information while also recognizing potential bias that an author may have.
The Math curriculum consists of 8 Standards for Mathematical Practice that educators look for students to achieve. These standards involve in understanding problems and persevere in solving them, being able to reason abstractly and quantitatively, constructing arguments about mathematical reasoning, using mathematical tools and models, attending to precision in problem-solving, and recognizing structure and repeated reasoning. Underlying these broad goals are the skill-specific objectives for mathematical problem-solving.

Dickson District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The curriculum at Dickson County School District is based on the academic standards set by the Tennessee Department of Education. Each subject area framework is designed so that students learn the fundamentals during elementary school and begin to get hands-on practice with the topics as they progress through middle school. For instance, in Math, students are taught operations, pattern recognition, shapes and measurement, and ratios and probability so that they can handle algebra, geometry and statistics in high school. Core academic learning is measured each year on statewide assessments that help demonstrate that every child has achieved the goals.
We currently cover the following Dickson-area school district: Dickson County School District.

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: Staying on Track with Homework
Creating a schedule for homework goes a long way in making sure it gets done daily. Positive motivation is also helpful; students might plan a reward for finishing each chunk of work. Students should also consider completing the most difficult part of assignments first so that they are not tempted to stop working. If you and your child both have smartphones or other devices that will sync, you can “share” a calendar and monitor the dates your student enters. There are also several apps for Apple and Android devices that keep up with homework and other due dates. One is myHomework, which alerts users to upcoming due dates and customizes to match your child’s school schedule. Once students learn to put these tips into action, procrastination can easily become a thing of the past.
