Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Martinsburg District Curriculum
Berkeley County Schools has consistency in its curriculum across schools. Literacy and math units are very well planned out and vertically aligned. Even if your students has to change from one school to another, they will probably still be reading the same book and studying the same math concepts. The skills from these core courses are taught so as to emphasize their interrelatedness with other subject area learning. This consistency ensures that the content is well prepared and presented and students are expected yearly to meet meaningful, targeted standards for learning in each subject area.
When it comes to adults, Berkeley County Schools provides programming both through adult education and partnerships with businesses. The business partnerships are especially strong, allowing students the opportunity to pair with business people as mentors. Teachers can earn grants from the businesses. All in all, it is a beneficial partnership from which both sides benefit.

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: Investing in Teachers
Berkeley County Schools invests in its teachers and their professional development ultimately benefits their students. It also benefits the quality of work that the teachers do every day, as it would not be possible for the number of that came out of Berkeley to exist were it not from superior teacher supports. This, in turn, supports students and gives them increased opportunities for high quality learning. By providing teachers the space and time that they need, students then also receive the services they need. Existing classroom initiatives can be models throughout the district and other schools in the area and also can be built upon so that there are more innovative learning opportunities for students. While monies could be allocated to curriculum or outside consultants, Berkeley has invested in its core resource and its teachers.
