Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Durham District Curriculum
The Language Arts curriculum is geared towards developing effective communication skills among students. In elementary school, students are expected to identify the various parts of fiction and nonfiction texts, recognize and use vocabulary words, and express themselves through the written word in an effective manner. As students progress into high school they take on more challenging concepts. Students are expected to write in a variety of modes, including persuasive and argumentative, and should be capable of conducting research.
Within the Mathematics curriculum, students become familiar with the use of numbers from an early age. They are exposed to computational and operational skills as they progress through elementary school. Students will also explore mathematics in a practical, every-day manner with regards to currency, time, and measurement. As students progress into secondary school work, they are scaffolded as they incorporate algebra, trigonometry, geometry, statistics and probability.

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: Avoiding Fallacies - Scare Tactics
Often times, making someone afraid seems like a fairly effective way to get them to do what you want. Unfortunately, it is not particularly convincing in the long run and, to a critical eye, severely weakens an argument. Telling someone to believe something “or else” makes the writer seem as if they do not have a legitimate reason for convincing the reader to believe the claim. When writing an argumentative essay it is important to make sure that all claims are founded, and you are not simply putting the worst case scenario forward in an attempt to scare your reader into agreeing with you. The argument should be evenly represented, and should be well-thought out.
