Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Evans District Curriculum
Scientific investigation both inside and outside of the classroom is a core component of science courses available to all grade levels in Columbia County Schools. Students will learn how to use tools and analyze relationships present in past and contemporary scientific worldviews. Middle school courses specifically give students many opportunities to observe and collect their own data, as well as use models and graphs to assist in its interpretation. In high school, students have the option to take electives in meteorology, zoology, oceanography, and many other scientific areas.
Columbia County Schools provide language arts courses that seek to build skills in the areas of reading comprehension and analysis, research, speaking, and writing. Specifically, students in grades K-5 focus on learning strategies that will allow them to identify key literary components and gain the ability to make inferences based on given texts. As they progress, students will also learn how to analyze more complex texts that may consist of technical information. Classical stories and passages will be included in these courses as well.

Evans District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Columbia County School System uses Common Core Standards to guide the Math and Language Arts curriculum and state adopted frameworks in other core subjects. Enrichment programs abound, and the district’s family connection program seeks to get parents and guardians involved, and mentoring programs throughout the district connect kids with caring, responsible adults. Learning about and how to use technology is also emphasized and students examine the impact of new technology on society, and debate the ethical issues that are raised as technology continues to develop.
We currently cover the following Evans-area school district: Columbia County School System.

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: Comma Usage
Punctuation can make or break a sentence. It can be used to create stress or to clarify your writing and it’s not uncommon to see certain marks used incorrectly, particularly when it comes to commas. Let’s examine the rules for their correct usage. Commas should be used when you want to organize items in a sentence into logical groupings. If you have three or more words or phrases that are used in a series, a comma is essential. This applies whether the words are nouns, adjectives, verbs, or clauses. You should also insert commas wherever there are contrasting phrases (ex. “The kittens were cute, but very loud.”). Tag questions and interjections also require the use of a comma. Look at these examples for some clarity: “He lives in Nebraska, doesn’t he?” and “Wait, I didn’t mean to make you angry!” There are many, many more rules on how to properly use this type of punctuation. It’s no wonder that it is used incorrectly so often!
