Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Dillon District Curriculum
Dillon School District Four endorses and provides resources for several curricular and instructional methods. The district uses the "Big6" approach, which was developed by Mike Eisenberg and Bob as a way for students to organize information they gather using technology and other sources. The first step in the Big6 involves identifying the task that need to be done. Secondly, the student must decide what sources they may use to find information on the topic. Step three involves determining where they can locate these materials.
After the student has collected the sources they will use, they need to decide which information can be used from the materials and is relevant to the topic (step four). For this step, students should be encouraged to take notes from their sources. Students will then use the information that they have gathered in their report (step five); they should be reminded not to plagiarize and to give the proper credit for ideas that are not their own. Finally, step six involves students evaluating their reports--looking over their finished products to check for any spelling and grammatical errors and to make sure they accomplished their goals.

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: The Back-to-School Jitters
Going back to school can be an exciting time for students, but it may also be a time of nerves as well. This is particularly true when students are entering middle or high school for the first time and find themselves as the youngest and least experienced students again. Students may be nervous about making friends, a larger school, new teachers, new classes, etc. They may not know anyone in some of their classes. Sometimes, they may find that some of their friends seemed to change over the summer break and that they may have grown apart. Although these may seem like trivial issues to parents, it is important for them to be sensitive to any nervousness their children may be feeling when they return to school. Students should recognize that the school year is long and that, as long as they are friendly and hardworking, they will be able to make new friends and do well in school. if they are concerned about any issues with regards to academics or any social issues, they shouldn't hesitate to ask questions to their teachers or guidance counselors.
