Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Hilton Head Island District Curriculum
The K-8 Language Arts education focuses on reading, writing, listening, language and speaking skills. Students are expected to read on their own beginning in Grade 1, and to build their reading comprehension through Grade 8. Students are asked to use writing and speaking skills to analyze and compare texts, to build arguments, and to inform others. Students learn to apply literacy and writing skills across disciplines, including Social Studies and Science. Technical literacy is also a significant part of the high school curriculum.
In Math, students are introduced to whole numbers in kindergarten, learn multiplication and division beginning in third grade, and master fractions and decimals by fifth grade. Algebra and geometry principles are introduced during middle school. Math skills build each year, and every student is required to take Statistics and Probability. Math instruction is centered around key organizational concepts rather than on rote memorization, leading to a functional mathematical capacity rather than a memorization of equations.

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: Tips for Your College Application Essay
Do you have a top choice for your college? Are you crossing your fingers and hoping to get in? Your personal essay is your chance to stand out from thousands of applicants. It describes something that’s uniquely yours, and it does so in your unique voice.
Collect your stories. Ask your family and your friends to tell their favorite stories about you. Listen to how they tell the story—what are the key details that make the story funny or entertaining? What is the set-up? Is there a sense of suspense? Is there a punch line? How do people describe you? What stories are you most proud of?
Ask yourself, “So What?” When you have chosen a few possible topics for your essay, see if you can answer the question, “So What?” This will help you come up with the point of your story. If you want to talk about what it was like to spend a week building houses in Mexico, your point might be that you were able to learn about how different life can be in different cultures and that you want to build your global IQ.
