Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Marion District Curriculum
The Social Studies curriculum at the Smyth County Public School District uses the community to help build on the educational skills they learn. Young children go to the fire station, or grocery stores to learn about the people in these places which help the community. The older students take trips to Williamsburg to reinforce what they have learned about the early years of Virginia and the United States. When they graduate, these students learn to look for connections between their lives and the world around them.
Students begin to learn Science by using their senses to explore their world. Eventually they learn to use telescopes, microscopes, Bunsen burners and chemicals to continue this exploration in different ways. They learn how to embrace these tools to learn about different details. Through the use of these tools, students learn to follow procedures as they use tools presented to them throughout their lives.

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.

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: Second Grade Science
In second grade, students begin to take part in the scientific method. They plan and conduct easy project which help them develop better reading, writing and math skills. They use measuring tools, collect data, record their observations and they classify objects. They begin to see things, such as the natural world, in a scientific manner. They begin to understand that ideas need to be tested and proved in order to be valid. In class the children take part in melting and evaporation, learn about how simple machines work and they see how weather changes the world. These lessons help students build invaluable relational thinking skills and begin their journeys at little scientists!
