Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Kinston District Curriculum
The Math curriculum emphasizes reasoning and making sense of problems, skills which have immediate, real-world applicability. Comparisons of attributes, representation and interpretation of data, and analysis of patterns are foundational elements that are also focused upon. Quantitative reasoning and concepts are important for science and business applications, as well as for everyday rates like batting averages or points scored per game.
The Language Arts curriculum focuses on reading strategies and the ability to write for a wide variety of purposes. Other communication skills like speaking and listening are also a major part of the curriculum, and are often learned through classroom discussions and presentations. The reading comprehension skills are applied to both literary and non-fiction texts and writing is conducted for purposes such as creativity, providing information and persuasion.

Kinston District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Lenoir County Public Schools utilizes the Common Core State Standards in building its curriculum, providing standardization for objectives carefully designated for appropriate grade levels. The standards detail major strands of learning, or topics, within each subject that students must become thoroughly proficient in order to gain real mastery of their subjects.
We currently cover the following Kinston-area school district: Lenoir County Public Schools.
Keeping Informed: Recent Kinston Educational News
- Job Shadowing - The partnership between community and school is essential for educational success, and Lenoir County is definitely successful if Job Shadowing Day is the measure. More than 120 businesses in Kinston, LaGrange, Pink Hill and Deep Run hosted students numbering over 330 from Kinston, North Lenoir, and South Lenoir High Schools.
- Book Cover Parade - “The books were marching down the hall, hurrah, hurrah…” Students in Southeast Elementary’s AIG program used a unique approach to present information about books they’d read: they used sandwich boards. The event, supplemented with grant money from the Community Council of the Arts, enabled students to show off their work, with a brief synopsis of their book, an illustration of an important scene, and key questions drawn and written on the sandwich boards. A parade down the hallways completed the project.
- REALLY Early Voting - This year, early voting came extra-early…about 5 years prematurely, in fact. Eighth graders at Frink Middle School participated in their own Presidential election during the US Presidential run to the White House. In the weeks leading up to their voting, students studied the American Founding Fathers, the American Revolution, the Declaration of Independence, and other foundational elements of our democratic republic. They watched both the Republican and Democratic National Conventions and some of the debates from the campaigns, culminating in casting their ballots.
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: A Journal Can Be Your Best Friend
Journals are for more than writing your feelings—try using one for every school subject to keep track of key information. Devote a composition notebook to math, for example, to write down formulas and steps for solving different types of problems. Assign a different notebook to social studies for history timelines and historical people, and for all those “-isms” you have to know (like nationalism, federalism, feudalism, etc.). A science journal could contain life cycle diagrams, chemistry formulas, and environmental processes; an English journal could include vocabulary lists and grammar components. Spend 5-10 minutes after school every day to move key info from the work you did in class to your journal; with all the important stuff in one place, studying before a test will be a snap! And, who knows—your teacher might even let you use your journal on the test…
