Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Georgetown District Curriculum
English Language Arts classes help students to synthesize what they read rather than simply telling students what the text is about. Students are challenged to read both nonfiction and literature and acquire valuable writing skills. Beyond creative or reflective writing, students also engage in analytic responses to the texts they read which helps them to organize their thoughts presented through writing. While it may be rigorous, graduates are able to compete in their postsecondary studies and future career pursuits.
The Math curriculum is structured similarly so that students are introduced early to concepts they will later be expected to master. In the early years, when students learn about pattern recognition, or shape properties, they are getting the building blocks for algebra and geometry in middle and high school. The introduction to probabilities, ratios and other ways to analyze data helps prepare students for more advanced work in statistics.

Georgetown District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The mission of the Georgetown County School District is “to provide challenging educational programs that require all students to meet high academic standards and that prepare all students to be responsible citizens and lifelong learners.” These high academic standards come primarily from the implementation of the Common Core State Standards in Math and English Language Arts. Under the Common Core, math teachers challenge their students to a deep mastery of concepts. They spend more time introducing and practicing the concepts, while challenging students to utilize higher level thinking skills to explain how they completed their work.
We currently cover the following Georgetown-area school district: Georgetown County School District.

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: Family Homework Time
Finding time to spend together can be difficult for most households, so why not make homework time family time. Gather the family, a stack of homework, and some supplemental materials, such as flash cards and books. Next turn of the television and other electronic devices. Then, simply be together while children are completing their homework. Parents and older siblings can be available to assist on difficult assignments. Those without homework and practice flash cards, quiz others on spelling words, or simply read a book quietly. While you may not always interact with one another, simply being in the same room, doing the same thing can become valuable family time.
