Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Fort Thomas District Curriculum
In English/Language Arts, The Kentucky Writing Program is in place to help teachers guide your child to be a better writer through consistent feedback and analysis of your child’s skills. Students are encouraged to take ownership of their learning to write by developing skills that allow them to construct work by a clear process. Throughout the schools, each student’s writing is kept in a portfolio and analyzed regularly, displaying their growth in abilities.
In Science and Mathematics, a program is in place to help your child’s teacher reach the goals and objectives that your child should meet to move through the grades regularly and graduate. Goals in the subjects are set at each grade level and your child’s teacher works to meet these. For instance, in Algebra the early concepts are taught in primary school and then developed throughout the years so that students can work with topics like equations and algorithms.

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: How To Be A Good Team Member
Whatever you do in life you will often be part of a team. Whether it is a sports team, a debating team or a science project team, good team skills are going to serve you well. Everyone gets better when working as a team. On a team everyone’s input should have the same weight. No one should be better than the others. Everyone needs to try to fit into the team without losing their individual strengths. If you are a leader, try to bring the ideas out of the quieter people. If you are a follower, try to assert your ideas sometimes. When everyone works together better things happen.
