Educating Our Parents: Understanding the La Vergne District Curriculum
The Rutherford County Schools provide educators with a scope and sequence of learning that students should achieve. The scope and sequence details the objectives, but allows teachers to determine how to instruct students in the goals. It also describes pacing and progression of skills and knowledge that students should learn from. For instance, in Biology, students learn about cell cycles, inheritance patterns, evolution, ecology, classification and study the interaction between different species and ecosystems.
The Algebra 1 curriculum introduces students to Functions and Structure of Expressions, Solving Equations and Inequalities, Linear and Exponential Sequences, Quadratic Expressions, and Square Root Functions. These topics are explored in a more abstract nature in Algebra II. Math students will also take Geometry where they will focus on the skills involved in Proving Theorems, Representing Transformations, Axiomatic Systems, and Scale Drawings. These geometry problem-solving skills help students understand spatial relations.

La Vergne District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Rutherford County Schools adhere to the Academic Standards established by the Tennessee Department of Education but are able to create their own curricular programs at the local level that fulfill the expectations. At RCS, there is a focus on literacy and communication as well as math and science and their points of intersection. The curriculum is scaffolded so that students are able to use what they learned in past years to master new material. In addition to advanced learning opportunities in core subjects, there is also the Tennessee Governor’s schools program that offers summer courses to gifted and talented students who want to increase their academic preparedness for college.
We currently cover the following La Vergne-area school district: Rutherford County Schools.

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: Kinesthetic Learners
There are several different ways that students learn in school. Some learn by writing, listening, watching, or touching. The kinesthetic learner learns by moving things, or themselves, as they experience education. These kids enjoy using manipulative objects and physically moving things. They also do very well when included in real-life action. Project based work that requires students to create or build something can be a very effective way to demonstrate what they know and can do. Often times, subject like physiology and anatomy are of interest to kinesthetic learners, and programs in areas such as physical therapy may be of interest. By knowing how these students learn the best, educators, and parents, can help to excel in school.
