Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Hoover District Curriculum
Scientific comprehension for all Alabama students is the objective of Hoover City Schools’ K-12 science program. Beginning in the primary grades, the students are encompassed in ways to think critically and methodically. The accomplishment of being literate in science, however, is necessary if Alabama students are to meet the daily challenges of the twenty-first century. Recognizing this, the new Alabama Course of Study: Science (Bulletin 2005, No. 20) centers on scientific literacy and provides demanding content standards. It also presents hands on method of instruction of the fundamental science concepts. As the state and nation are contingent on science and technology, scientific literacy is progressively becoming the benchmark for the success of the children.
The Social Studies/History curriculum of this district focuses on shaping students to become well-educated, analytical philosophers who have the ability to make sound decisions in today’s society. Following Alabama State Standards, teachers instruct about the facts of past events in history, rather than simple memorization, to teach them to analyze and think critically about these events. This enables the students to be able to make informed decisions about today’s events, such as political happenings, economic issues, and government decisions.

Hoover District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The K-12 core curriculum for Hoover City Schools consists of Language Arts, Technology, Science, Social Studies, Mathematics, World Languages, the Arts, Physical Education and other electives. Hoover City Schools follows the Alabama State Standards, an accredited curriculum designed to grant equity and access for all students.
The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics’ (NCTM) standards of problem solving, cognition and evidential thinking, communication using arithmetic, demonstration, and associations are the focal points of the math curriculum. These mathematic proficiencies include the development of mathematic reasoning and using a variety of problem-solving strategies with fluency and precision.
The English/Language Arts curriculum requires a vast amount of attention to reading and comprehending informational text and requiring an increased involvedness in literary analysis. The Language Arts curriculum lays out what a literate person in the twenty-first century can accomplish. Pupils who reach the academic benchmarks willingly undertake the close, attentive reading that is at the core of understanding and appreciating complex literature. Having efficacious literacy skills in history/social studies, science, and technical subjects will scaffold each student’s success in school and beyond.
We currently cover the following Hoover-area school district: Hoover City Schools.

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.
