Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Leesburg District Curriculum
The Reading curriculum begins with students gaining an understanding of the phonetic principles, such as identifying the upper case and lower case letters. They can then use these principles to help them identify words and to help them expand their vocabulary. This skill allows them to explore the literature of different cultures and prepare to take classes such as etymology, journalism or fundamentals of writing.
Students begin studying Social Studies in kindergarten as they learn the meaning of words such as yesterday, or a long time ago. They also become familiar with famous people that they will learn more about as they go through school. Students learn how to find continents and oceans by using cardinal directions and the four hemispheres before they enter middle school. By graduation, they can take one area that they have an interest in and study it more in depth. The areas they can choose from include history, economics, psychology, and world religions.

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: Important Terms Each Kindergarten Parent Should Know
When a student begins kindergarten, parents feel like they are thrown into a new world, a world filled with words they may not understand. For example, teachers may talk about modeling. This is another word for the process for teaching something by demonstrating, like when a teacher moves a finger across a page while reading. Another term is assessment, which means the way that a teacher gauges the progress of the children. These assessments can be based on the standards and benchmarks which is the basis of comparison for the student, generally set by the state or school district. One of these benchmarks includes phonemic awareness or the sounds that a letter makes. High frequency words, or sight words, are words that are used frequently in print, such as the word “the”. With a basic understanding of these words parents may not be as confused when their little ones enter this next adventure.
