Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lexington District Curriculum
In Mathematics, the learning strands of this school district contain a wide variety of geometric standards. These standards include the acquisition of coordinate geometry through the specifications of locations and relationships, the ability to perform plotting on a coordinate plane, identifying quadrants in the planes, and finding the distance between points on a coordinate plane.
Comprising the Reading curriculum, the K-12 goals include the writing standards, which are very beneficial to the students’ reading development, as well as the development of their personal expression. The writing standard teaches students about the writing process, from brainstorming to the polished end-result of the writing. It also focuses on sentence structure, grammar, punctuation and spelling. Students are given many opportunities to explore and think for themselves while developing their own content for their writing. Research skills are also taught within this learning objective.

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: Language Arts vs. Reading: What’s the Difference?
Many times, Language Arts and Reading are used interchangeably within the school systems. When a teacher teaches reading, usually it is known that the teacher does, in fact, teach more than reading. In order for the children to learn how to read, they also must acquire the ability to write and use speaking and listening skills. Language Arts is a more broad term for the teaching of reading, as it encompasses all areas of our language: reading, writing, listening, and speaking. Usually, Language Arts refers to teachers that teach middle school or secondary school where the courses are more challenging. This is not always the case, but many times it rings true. In the elementary grades, the class is usually called reading, rather than Language Arts. Either way, the two titles are used to mean basically the same thing: the teaching of all aspects of our language: reading, writing, listening, and speaking.
