Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Florence District Curriculum
The Math curriculum is based on Common Core State Standards which breaks down the topic along the lines of numeracy and operations, algebra, geometry, data analysis, and provides for the learning objectives in more advanced math such as trigonometry and pre-calculus. The curriculum is progressive and scaffolds students experience by introducing increasingly complex skills each year. Ultimately, the curriculum has a number of goals including the ability to determine the best computational method or tools to solve a problem and the development of mathematic reasoning skills.
The Language Arts curriculum is similar in that it is structured around the key components of the subject - reading, writing, verbal communication, media viewing, and conducting research. These skills are integrated and students learn how to use information from what they have read to formulate and write about or discuss their own ideas. Language and vocabulary skills are emphasized throughout the curriculum and students are expected to be able to use formal English in their written assignments.

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: Developing Critical Reading Skills
Developing critical reading skills involves many different analytic strategies, which are best learned one at a time although often one text can teach multiple reading strategies. One aspect of critical reading is questioning the text - asking what the purpose is and how the author is achieving his/her goal. Another strategy in critical reading is to generate predictions about what might happen or what information may come out, and then questioning the assumptions used to make the predictions. A third strategy involves analyzing the effectiveness of an author's purpose or ability to create the effect sought. Students should always have the opportunity to discuss the texts they are reading, explore their interests and write about the reading they have learned from. These activities all greatly enhance the critical awareness brought to reading.
