Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Myrtle Beach District Curriculum
In Math, the Common Core changes the pace of student development. Rather than teaching students many concepts, but barely going below the surface each year, the Common Core requires greater depth. Students practice fewer standards while mastering them at great depth, and therefore require less review of the concepts in future classes. The standards focus on numerical operations, algebra, geometry, data analysis (statistics and probability), and trigonometry.
English Language Arts has also changed the focus of learning to help students prepare for life in the real world. Instead of focusing mostly on literature, students are invited to read and synthesize non-fiction as well. The English teachers partner with the content areas to help students learn to apply their learning in a more practical manner. There is an emphasis on word study, reading comprehension, writing abilities, critical media viewership, and the development of research skills.

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: College Scholarships
There are many ways to pay for college, including saving up the money and planning ahead of time or taking out student loans which must be paid back later. However, why not let someone else pay for your child’s education through scholarships? Many universities give out free money to students based on GPA, ACT/SAT scores, leadership activities, volunteer experience, and extra-curricular activities. However, more money can be found through simple internet searches. Oftentimes it takes less than 30 minutes to fill out a scholarship application from a private organization. While these scholarships may only equal two to three hundred dollars, considering that it took only 30 minutes of work to receive that money it is easy money which can offset the high cost of post-secondary education.
