Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Florence District Curriculum
Early childhood Mathematics education includes working with patterns, coins, time, and classification. By Grade 3 students can multiply and work with fractions. Grades 5-8 cover fractions and decimals, and by Grade 8 students are using the Pythagorean theorem. High school students cover algebra, geometry, and statistics and probability and some high school students can also take Pre-Calculus.
Early childhood Language Arts education includes using pictures to tell stories, learning to read using phonics, developing spelling and vocabulary skills, using contextual clues to determine meaning, and writing stories and descriptions. By Grade 8, students can write a multi-paragraph composition and can use evidence to advance an argument. High school students learn to evaluate evidence, conduct text-based research and inquiry, and present findings. Through discussions and writing exercises, students build these skills which help to develop overall critical analytic abilities and are applied in all areas of learning.

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.

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: Organizational Skills for Your High School Student
By the time your child reaches high school, he or she will be taking up to nine different courses, each with its own curriculum and homework assignments. If you haven’t worked on organization and planning yet, now is the time—these skills will be crucial to high school success and are vital to success in college or in any future career endeavor.
Give your child a planner. Whether a mobile device or an old-school ledger, a planning aid will save you both time and frustration. Your child needs a record of what he or she is expected to do during the week. A planner ensures that he or she knows whether morning swim practice is Tuesday or Thursday, and on which night of the week the Troop Meeting is held.
Check in with your child. Once a week, sit down and review your planners together. Make sure your son or daughter has a ride to each activity, and that he or she is prepared for any social or school events.
