Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Georgetown District Curriculum
In the elementary school, at Georgetown Schools, the students are introduced to literature in many ways. When they first enter school, the teachers read books to the students that are based on weekly themes. This continues while students are shown different strategies to help them become more fluent. Some of the lessons they encounter include using six words to write a memoir, or to use SOAPStone, (Speaker, Occasion, Audience, Purpose, Subject, Tone) to help them understand poetry.
The science curriculum at Georgetown Schools begins by exploring the basics of the students’ world. They explore topics such as weather by creating a weather map by following fronts, windspeed, storms and other information on daily weather maps. They then create Venn diagrams showing cold and warm fronts and how they affect weather. In high school, they can expand on this knowledge by studying earth science, or other sciences to help students feel more a part of the world that they live in.

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: Fifth Grade Mathematics
Fifth grade mathematics may vary from state to state but generally this is the age-level that is preparing for middle school. In this year students begin to understand the language of math, plus they are able to demonstrate understanding of numbers up to the millions and decimals to the thousandths place. They also begin to learn about prime numbers, plus use range, mean, mode and median to share data. These and much more help make the leap from fifth grade to middle school a little easier. With the increasing use of technology, math at this level is also becoming more interactive and students can see the applicability of math in their computer use and in solving increasingly difficult challenges.
