Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Knoxville District Curriculum
The Math curriculum prepares students for advanced topics such as algebra, geometry, statistics and pre-calculus in high school. By the end of the 8th grade, students will be proficient in number systems, expressions and equations, functions, geometry, and statistics and probability so that they can take on these more difficult courses. Students will understand the statement of the Pythagorean Theorem and see how it applies in real world applications. They will also use quantitative data to make predictions and decisions.
With regards to the Literacy Standards, by the time students start high school they should be able to read, write, and communicate using analytic skills. Reading standards call on students to be able to identify key ideas and details, understand the craft and structure of literature, recognize the goals of non-fiction, be able to integrate ideas and knowledge, and demonstrate an increasingly level of complexity in their reading. Writing goals include writing for a variety of purposes, working through a writing process, and being able to conduct and use research.

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: Children’s Literature Spotlight: Variation on Classic Fairytales
Many children are aware of the classic versions of the most popular fairytales, but there are many great books that tell different versions and allow students to see things from multiple perspectives. Lon Po Po: A Red-Riding Hood Story from China is a variation on the classic Little Red-Riding Hood fairytale that gives children a different cultural perspective, as it takes place in China. The Caldecott Medal winning book is full of interesting panel illustrations. The Princess and the Pea in Miniature, written and illustrated by Lauren Child and photographed by Polly Borland, tells the well-known version of the tale, but it is the captivating images of drawn characters in front of a variety of photographed backgrounds that makes Child’s book truly unique.
