Educating Our Parents: Understanding the McLean District Curriculum
Students in McLean also have the opportunity to learn a second language as part of Fairfax County’s world languages curriculum. Students have various choices to choose from, including Latin, French, Spanish, and German. One area of focus is the development of cultural understanding. Students use the study of language as a vehicle for exploring sociocultural features of countries that speak the language under study. As a result, students gain an appreciation for the heritage and traditions associated with that language. The acquisition of another language also facilitates improved access to information.
The economics and personal finance curriculum in McLean revolves around helping students acquire an understanding of basic economic principles. Investment and savings strategies are explored, with students comparing and contrasting simple interest and compound interest. Students also examine how the Social Security system works, and how that impacts workers’ long-term financial planning. Another component of the curriculum is taxes. Students develop an understanding of the purpose of taxes, as well as their impact on one’s net income.

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: Essential Reasons to Study History
History is a central component of all K-12 curricula, but some children question why they need to learn about long-ago people, places, and events. There are many reasons for the necessity of history. First, history isn’t something static that took place long ago. History is in a constant state of occurrence, and the events that occur today are in some way, shape, or form, influenced by events of the past. Secondly, history allows us to devise a framework within which we come to understand the world around us. By gaining perspective on what’s occurred in the past, students can better understand their present. Lastly, history inspires us to make better decisions, teaches us discernment, and motivates us to be better than previous generations. It is through these processes that students acquire the tools they need to continue to improve the world in which they live.
