Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Fuquay-Varina District Curriculum
The elementary grades use a balanced approach to literacy instruction, as students receive direct, explicit instruction in foundational skills, comprehension, fluency, and vocabulary. The balanced literacy approach consists of daily instruction in both reading and writing; learning in whole-group, small-group, and individualized settings; and teachers modeling comprehension and work attack strategies and higher order thinking skills. The use of digital media helps students apply, locate, synthesize, and utilize information.
Math instruction focuses on deep conceptual understanding, with students solving real-world problems and collaborating with classmates. Science instruction in the district is student-centered; inquiry-based; and involves students predicting, talking and sharing, recording observations and data, and generating responses based on evidence. Understanding the process of scientific discovery is a key goal. Another goal is for students to be able to utilize all the logical reasoning strategies they learn in many problem-solving contexts.

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: Student Feedback
It is important that students receive thoughtful feedback on their performance, which can help explain the grades they received. The teacher comments should describe some things the student did well and what he/she could improve upon. Following is an example of teacher feedback on a fifth grade student who received a cumulative grade of an ‘A’ on a social studies unit. During this unit, each student has completed several projects, researching the country of his or her choice. The purpose of this unit was not only for the students to learn about their countries—as well as others—but also to work on their writing, research, and presentation skills.
