Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Fairmont District Curriculum
The Common Core is being implemented rigorously in Marion County Schools. Math is a special area of focus. The Common Core addresses not only content but also the thinking processes students need to learn in order to master the content. The idea is to focus on fewer standards but ensure students develop a range of complex problem-solving skills in each. Operational sense, algebraic thinking, geometric and spatial awareness, and the ability to analyze, manipulate, and model with quantitative data are main goals of the curriculum.
Marion County Schools offers a wide variety of courses at the high school level. A much higher percentage of Marion students are enrolled in Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate programs than the state level percentages. These programs provide students with college level or internationally based learning standards. This shows that Marion County Schools prepares students for success whether students are planning to attend college or pursue employment after graduation.

Fairmont District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Marion County Schools focuses on 21st century skills. This means technology integration and skills are at the forefront. Students are encouraged to build their technology skills and teachers and staff constantly use technology to deliver instruction. This prepares students for the fields and careers that haven’t even been invented yet and gives them the adaptive learning skills necessary to face such future challenges. Students are also able to get involved in extracurriculars that promote academic competition, community service, and the arts.
We currently cover the following Fairmont-area school district: Marion 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 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: Technology Integration Must Be Genuine
Students need to actually create something new and think in new ways for technology integration to be authentic. Technology is now not only something that can be used to create presentations, it also has many uses as a teaching tool, or a self-directed teaching tool, and as an entire subject of study. If students are completing the same old book reports that they have completed for decades, except that now they are typed and include little animations, something is wrong. If students are communicating with classrooms across the globe, working to solve a water shortage, something is right. This is the power of technology and students should have access to courses on web development, programming, or coding. If schools harness students' curiosity and earnestness and give them the opportunity to truly change the world.
