Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Greenwood District Curriculum
The school district recently adopted a new reading textbook series titled 'Reading Street' published by Pearson. Every lesson is aligned to the Common Core State Standards and incorporates 21st century media and technology skills. It offers a fine balance between fiction and informational text; exposing students to regular writing for a range of purposes, and integrated content.
Greenwood staff, students and parents have also been introduced to another rigorous program entitled ‘Renaissance Learning’. It is designed to accelerate learning, energize classrooms, and help staff and students develop and meet academic goals. Families are able to sign into the program from home to track their child’s progress in the curricular areas of reading and math. Overall, this is an exceptional support tool for all involved in the educational process.

Greenwood District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
One of the most exciting components of the Greenwood curriculum is the adoption of ‘blended learning’ at the middle and high schools during the previous academic year. Specifically this is a progressive program that allows students to access academic content and instruction through an online format giving the child autonomy in their pace of learning. It has received exceptional reviews and will be used as a vehicle for learning in the next school year.
We currently cover the following Greenwood-area school district: Greenwood Community School Corporation.

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: Resources for Budding Astronomers
Parents often ask what they can do to ensure their child achieves in the classroom. What follows are some tips that educators have come to agree upon as supportive activities in the quest for knowledge. First, routine is extremely important. Children should have a regular bedtime and morning schedule that supports learning. Also, children should read every day; read to parents, siblings, pets and neighborhood friends. Another consideration is that meals and snacks should be healthy. Take time to research diets that are believed to improve mental and physical health. Finally, make learning a part of your daily experience. Learn as a family; and set aside a quiet area for homework and study. Model a love of learning and your children will follow suit.
