Educating Our Parents: Understanding the London District Curriculum
As part of the career studies, students learn that their income potential rests squarely on their ability to demonstrate competency on the job and commitment to doing a job well done. Credit and debt is discussed in detail, with students identifying the differences between good and bad debt. To be responsible users of credit, students explore the various ways in which credit can be used correctly and incorrectly. Students also examine interest rates and how carrying a balance on a credit card can result in thousands of dollars of interest fees.
A central part of the London curriculum is the visual and performing arts. Students have the option of studying theatre arts as part of the curriculum. In high school, theatre students work on advanced skills that meet or exceed standards and benchmarks for proficiency in drama performance. Students learn various duties associated with theatre production, including the various roles of actors, directors, and stage technicians. Students develop advanced acting skills, noting the use of elements that direct and hold the audience’s attention.

London District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
K-12 students in London attend London City Schools. The district includes three schools – one elementary school, one middle school, and one high school – and more than 2,100 students. Although the district and the city of London are both growing, there is still a small-town feel to the education that children get in London City Schools. Teachers foster the development of each child’s unique interests and aptitudes through extensive individualized attention. Children are encouraged to explore topics that interest them, in addition to participating in the regular school curriculum. The mission of the district is to promote student success. To achieve this mission, London City Schools has implemented a curriculum that is both rigorous and relevant to the needs of today.
We currently cover the following London-area school district: London City 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: Preparing a College Resume
Some students balk at creating a resume because they use the Common Application, which includes a list of activities. In a sense, this is a resume, though it only allows a limited number of activities. If you’re applying to colleges that don’t take the Common Application, you should really consider making a resume, also. Frankly, it’s a good idea to make a resume to prepare for filling out the Common Application, since it will get you thinking about what activities you want to highlight and include or not include. Some students prefer to send an additional resume because it simply looks nicer than the Common Application version, as well. And some students will end up filling out their application on a college’s website, even when it is a college that offers the Common Application, so having a resume on hand can be very useful.
