Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Laurens District Curriculum
English Language Arts classes present students with a variety of texts, both literature and non-fiction. Students practice reading, synthesizing, and writing skills that can transfer into all other content areas. They develop evaluative skills by learning how to conduct independent, academic research. Beyond high school, the skills they learn are useful for the work they will do in the university setting and prepare them for success in the career world as well.
Math classes focus on fewer concepts in a given year than in the past, but invite students to study them at a greater depth. Students still learn the same things throughout the course of their academic career, however, through changing when they learn certain concepts the expectation is that they will have greater mastery and retention of ideas over the long term. For instance, early learning in patterning concepts sets the stage for understanding algebra in middle and high school.

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: College Scholarships
Paying for college is a difficulty for many families, but with careful planning and a little bit of work, students can have their school paid for. Many schools offer scholarships based on GPA, standardized test scores (generally the ACT or SAT), leadership activities, volunteer experience, and extra-curricular activities. Students who are high achieving in any of these areas should seek scholarships from their universities for them. However, those who may not have as much success are not out of luck. There are many organizations willing to give away money to those who are willing to take the time to apply. Students who spend time each day utilizing internet searches and applying for scholarships can pay for all or most of their tuition if they are dedicated to the cause.
