Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Greer District Curriculum
In Language Arts, students must integrate higher level thinking skills as they apply reading and writing across the other content areas such as science and social studies. The skills they acquire in Language Arts will translate to the real world in terms of communication, media viewership and research skills. The expectations for acquiring research skills include being able to find and evaluate the quality of resources, recognize fact, opinion and authors' intent, and to explain the meaning of the information found.
Math classes under the Common Core standards invite students to learn concepts at a greater depth than in the past. Students are challenged to dig deeper and truly master ideas before moving on to the next lesson. The subject is divided among the major topics of numeracy, algebra, geometry, statistics and probability, and contains standards from trigonometry and calculus and then the expectations detail the skills inherent within each that students must develop over the grade span.

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: Practicing Math Facts
An old proverb states that “repetition is the mother of all learning” which translates to the more modern saying “practice makes perfect.” In the case of children learning basic addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division facts, this is certainly true. In order to be able to solve problems using fractions, money, Algebra, and more, students must first have a foundation of their basic facts. Students who practice math facts for just ten minutes each day will have a leg up over those who don’t. Help your child out by using some of the time spent driving to school, cleaning up after dinner, or simply turn off the television at night to practice this important skill.
