Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Marion District Curriculum
In English Language Arts, students will read independently and understand increasingly complex materials. When writing, students will write clearly and effectively using correct grammar, punctuation, and spelling. They will also write for different audiences and purposes (i.e., to entertain, persuade, describe, analyze, inform) and will use effective listening and speaking skills. These skills are taught in an integrated fashion and across subject areas.
In Social Studies, students will learn how different groups of people have influenced others and how different events and societal changes have changed local and worldwide history. They will study human rights and figure out what civic responsibility means to them. Students will examine maps, the effects of the environment on different people, and the role of producers and consumers in the global economy. The Social Studies curriculum encourages intercultural awareness, historical perspective, and a way to introduce concepts such as political systems.

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: What Are the Differences Between Public Schools and Charter Schools?
Public schools are funded by the government and, by law, are required to accept very child in their district. Charter schools are created by the teachers, parents, and the community. Charter schools do receive some financing from the government as well as outside financing. The demographics of the public school can vary widely based on the location of the school. Charter schools usually have an application process in order to be admitted and have the ability to limit the students they admit. Public school teachers teach the educational standards that are set by the state. Charter school teachers have to meet the same state educational requirements; however, they have more freedom in offering a variety of electives.
