Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Jackson District Curriculum
From kindergarten through twelfth grade, students build an appreciation of literature through a wide variety of readings, across many time periods and genres. They are exposed to the written word not only through textbooks, but through fictional and non-fictional works presented through magazines, computers and books. They learn to write in different styles, such as persuasively, by discovering how to defend a point of view, first orally, then through the written word.
Since 2001, the Science program has been a part of the Urban Systemic Program, which was developed by the National Science Foundation. This program includes goals in the areas of Science, Mathematics and Technology. Jackson Public Schools offer a Science Fair which is opened to all students from first grade through twelfth. The students learn the parts in a scientific investigation by finding the problem to be solved, ways to gather their information, how to theorize, and then how to report on their findings.

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.

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: How to Help with History Homework
When a child needs help with history, there are a few simple things to try. First, make sure the student knows what the assignment is. Next, try to bring the assignment to life by relating it to a time and place the child understands. If the child enjoys, art, they can create a drawing or some other art work to help bring meaning to the topic. A day-trip also helps some students comprehend a subject matter. A fort, a battlefield or a museum are possible destinations to allow make the learning experience more meaningful for a child.
