Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Hillsborough District Curriculum
In English, topics like parts of the speech, punctuation, sentence construction, tenses, inflections and creative writing are worked upon, besides many others literacy skills. Reading is an essential part of the English curriculum where kids start off with reading picture books and move forward to reading bigger story books with complex and advanced vocabulary. Writing is also a significant focus and students are taught how to brainstorm and outline their ideas, draft, edit, revise, and finally present their final work.
In Math, topics like fractions, decimals, volume and area are included. These topics are started off during the grades. Before that, the kids are given a thorough explanation of basic concepts like place values, addition and subtraction until they are perfect and their basic foundation becomes strong enough to start off advanced concepts with them. High school math requirements include one year of Algebra 1, one year of Algebra 2, one year of Geometry, and a fourth year of either pre-Calculus, Business Math, Math Analysis or Calculus.

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: Educational Trips for Kids
Minds of kids are always open for learning and we, as parents must remember to keep their process of learning in continuation at all times. During vacations or during weekends when kids are off from school, instead of making them stay at home watching TV, you can take them out for any educational trip like to a Science or Historical Museum, the State Library or an Art Gallery. These trips will provide knowledge to the young minds and they will develop an interest in these fields. Other ideas where kids can be taken to are local annual festivals, theme parks, circuses and local sporting events. You should make children read out artifacts and other details at such places so they would know about major events, national heroes and poets and famous athletes that have been in history.
