Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Knoxville District Curriculum
Tennessee, like many states, has adopted the Common Core State Standards. The Department of Education in Tennessee is committed to providing resources and training to its teachers, to stay current with the transition to Common Core, and to continue to provide an excellent education based on student needs. Knox County’s Academic Standards include academic vocabulary, arts, foreign language, computer technology, mathematics, reading, and career guidance.
One of the ways that Knox County schools meet the academic standards is by providing learning opportunities through service learning. In service learning, students learn by experience within the community. They not only develop critical thinking skills relevant to the needs of the community, but they learn about ethical and social aspects of decisions in this context. Students reinforce their knowledge and application of good character traits, such as respect, responsibility, and citizenship through these experiences, while connecting to their community.
Contact our Academic Directors Today at 1-877-545-7737 to Discuss your Child's Strengths and Areas for Improvement.
SchoolTutoring Academy’s tutoring programs for Knoxville students start with a free academic assessment with an Academic Director. Our flagship tutoring programs are available for $199.99/month which include regular one-on-one tutoring, academic mentorship, bi-monthly progress reports, learning profiles, and parental conference calls.

Keeping Informed: Recent Knoxville Educational News
- Common Core Implementation - Full transition to the Common Core standards in all Knox County schools in Math and Language Arts will provide a more rigorous and nationally consistent education for students. It will involve more critical thinking while providing a standard of education that will lead to more successful futures for students and communities. The superintendent also announced that those who are not able to attend graduations in person will have the opportunity to watch them on a web-based site.
- Visit By the C-SPAN Bus - Students learn about opportunities, programs, and resources provided by C-SPAN. Students were invited to create videos which focus on important issues the government should address. Events such as these not only provide a creative outlet for students to voice their opinions about government, but it gets them involved and reinforces to students that they can make a difference with their voices. Civic engagement is essential for young people to better understand their local communities and their place in the bigger picture.
- Principal for a Day - The “Principal for a Day” program, presented by Knox County Schools, brought in a leading education company to include close to 100 business, government, and community leaders to experience the daily challenges in public education. Support for education is most likely and most meaningful when other sectors of the community get involved and “walk the walk” of teachers and administrators. This allows for more valuable discussions, decisions, and insights that will enhance resources and programs that will lead to common goals and better education for students.
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: Making Learning Fun
Let’s face it: if it’s not fun, kids don’t want to do it! One way to get your child to practice skills while having fun is to play your own version of “Stump Your Parents.” The only materials you need for this are pencils, white copy paper (or use colored paper, with a different color for each subject) and any game board you have at home. You can even make one with your child on poster board. Ask your child what he or she is learning in school in a particular subject. Cut or tear the paper into ¼ sheets to make “game flashcards” for your “Stump Your Parents” game. Label one side of the ¼ sheets Q for question, and label the other side A for answer. Now you and your child can write related questions (that practice the skills) and answers on the cards. This will not only help your child in the skills they need for the topic (math, science, social studies), but it will improve his or her writing and penmanship!
