Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Durham District Curriculum
Core academic learning is subject specific in the Durham schools. The Mathematics curriculum followed in the Durham Public Schools is that of real like scenarios that incorporate Algebra, Geometry and Statistics into the students’ everyday life. A thorough understanding of mathematical equations, formulas and work problems are taught on a consistent basis so that students are equipped to use their mathematical experiences from high school beyond the classroom.
The Mathematics curriculum is rigorous and geared for students that are ready to take on the challenge of being able to complete problems from beginning to end, then know how to relay back what they did to solve a problem. The curriculum will get the students to learning and thinking outside of their comfort zones in math, as they advance in this subject, the more they will be successful at solving complex problems.

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: Is Establishing A College Major As A Freshman Really Important?
The most important part of freshman year is simply attending classes. Waiting to determine what major you’re going to declare in your freshman year of college should not ever stop you from becoming an active student. You can always decide later what you want to major in while in college. You will always want to stay in touch with an Academic Counselor because they are filled with a wealth of information for you while narrowing down a major of specific study. The Academic Counselor will or at least should be one of the people you communicate with on a regular basis; they can help you get through the rigors of classes, extra-curricular activities and the do’s and don’ts of college life.
