Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Fountain District Curriculum
The Math curriculum emphasizes the areas of numeracy, operations, algebra, geometry, and data analysis and statistics. Early learning begins by introducing students to different skills within each like pattern recognition or shapes and measurement, and these are built on during the middle school years. Students work with equations, formulas, and theorems and become able to create models that help them solve both real world challenges.
The Language Arts curriculum oversees the literacy and communication skills development of students as they will be applied in all subject area learning. Reading strategies are taught with both fiction and non-fiction so that students are able to understand the different goals within different works. Writing is taught so that students learn how to express themselves clearly and persuasively, using a strong voice and having a command of the language.

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: Factors in Academic Success
Students who are academically successful are not just so because they know how to study well or are just naturally smart; many students who are academically successful are so because of their ability to make the most out of the resources available to them. For instance, students who have a strong understanding of the resources available at local libraries and know how to seek out knowledge and information, have an edge on academic success. When students join local clubs, sports teams, or extraucrriculars, they also gain in their academic edge because they have an area where interest and enjoyment mix and they are able to define their success in an arena of their choosing. Students should be encouraged from an early age to learn about what resources are available and how to use them.
