Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Greenwood District Curriculum
Students are expected to understand concepts to a greater depth than in the past in their math classes. They spend extra time on fewer ideas in a school year so that they master the concepts resulting in less review time in the future. This creates greater understanding of each aspect of the standard because students become experts before the next standard is taught. In high school, algebra and geometry are particularly emphasized and a major feature on college admissions tests students may take.
In English Language Arts students read and write about both literature and non-fiction. They are able to synthesize and write about subjects across the content areas including not only English, but also Science and Social Studies which will give them the skills they need to be successful in the real world. Writing is also a big part of the curriculum and students are asked to write creative pieces, narratives, expository and persuasive essays. These different styles are all instructed upon so that students have range in their writing voice.

Greenwood District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Greenwood Public Schools seek to educate all students to become responsible and productive students. The Greenwood Schools apply the Common Core State Standards to reach each student in Math and Language Arts. Other academic courses use a similar structure by which the subject is taught based on the major topics involved and students move from the fundamentals to advanced work by the time they graduate.
We currently cover the following Greenwood-area school district: Greenwood Public Schools.

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: Making Children Accountable for Their Success
If your child is struggling in school perhaps it is because they are not being accountable for their success. Sometimes children struggle due to disorganization and poor time management. Help your child come up with three goals with specific actions to help them become more organized such as “I will make note of all homework in a calendar and double check the calendar when packing my backpack each day.” Have the child write the goals in their own handwriting and both the parents and the child can sign the page like a contract. Revisit this page often and make changes as your son or daughter achieves his or her goals.
