Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lynchburg District Curriculum
The History curriculum in Lynchburg City Schools begins in kindergarten by helping the students become familiar with the community around them, including the leaders, laws and locations of places. In the next few years, this subject expands to include the history of the area, responsibilities of the people and how other countries have contributed to the area. In high school, students are prepared to tackle topics such as economics and world history.
The English curriculum includes the areas of communications, reading, writing and research. Oral communication begins with students understanding the sounds that each letter makes when spoken. Throughout their education, the students will expand on these areas and also learn about synonyms, homonyms, figurative and literal speech, and learn how to look at a story and present their opinions on the story in their own word, using the skills they have been taught.

Lynchburg District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Lynchburg City Schools educate children to be critical thinkers and good decision makers. To fulfill this goal the schools follow the guidelines presented by the Virginia Department of Education in its Standards of Learning. These standards present the precise learning objectives and intended outcomes for students at each grade level in each subject. The goal is to advance students to the point where they are proficient in doing analytic work, using reasoning to solve problems or present a case, and be able to communicate a wide range of thoughts.

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: What to Expect From Junior High Reading
When students begin their years in junior high, one of the first things they notice is that there is a lot more reading. To find how many, or what books, the student will be expected to read; a glance at the state standards will give an idea. They may not list specific titles, but they do show the types of books they will be expected to be familiar with by the time they reach high school. Generally, students in junior high are expected to study poetry, plays and one or more novels a year. They also work on the parts of a story as well as factual books and how to find ideas to help support an opinion. As expected the work is more extensive than what the student had before, but with guidance from their teachers and parents, junior high reading can be mastered successfully.
