Educating Our Parents: Understanding the East Ridge District Curriculum
The English curriculum at Hamilton County Schools provides the materials needed to develop skills in various areas such as writing, critical thinking, research and literature analysis. Throughout this area, students gain tools in grammar, punctuation, usage and learn about literary devices and the craft of literature. These skills help students succeed in decoding meaning of the texts they read. When they enter high school, they use these tools to help them read and analyze books and plays such as The Crucible and The Great Gatsby.
World History is part of the Social Studies Curriculum. At Hamilton County Schools, student find out about the rise of the nation-state in Europe, European history such as the French Revolution, and the economic and political roots of the world today. Students discover how events such as the Industrial Revolution began and the changes it brought to society. They also learn about imperialism in across the globe and how it impacts events today. By understanding these concepts, students are better able to understand current events in the world.

East Ridge District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The curriculum at Hamilton County Schools is based on the educational standards set by the Tennessee Department of Education but the scope and sequence of learning is designed by the district. This allows the school to create learning experiences that provide a college and career preparedness rigor. The curriculum focuses on building core academic knowledge each year, allowing students to reflect on what they have learned in the past to understand more complex topics. In addition to the core learning, electives in the arts, health, physical education and, in high school, career-related electives allows students to connect with areas of personal interest.
We currently cover the following East Ridge-area school district: Hamilton County Schools.

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.

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: Options for Seniors
Not every senior wants to or is ready to start college immediately following high school graduation, and there are a number of opportunities available that can help these students make the most of the year following graduation. There are Gap Year programs that allow students to travel and/or do community service. Programs like CityYear or Teach for America help introduce students to career areas while giving them valuable work experience. Traveling abroad and working with an international NGO is another option for students who want to see the world. This also gives students valuable experience and perspective. For students who know they want to attend college but have yet to figure out what they want to study, spending time taking courses at a community college can help answer those questions.
