Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Nicholasville District Curriculum
In English/Language Arts in Nicholasville, students are expected to learn reading, writing, speaking, listening, observing, inquiring and how to use technology to communicate. Much emphasis is put upon learning to write effectively and with good English usage. Your child will have writing expectations for each grade level. In the classrooms, teachers will continually assess your child to see that he/she is meeting those expectations.
In Math, students are encouraged to meet standard criteria that the Department of Education sets out. Elementary students learn to add, subtract, multiply and divide. Algebra and geometry concepts are introduced in elementary classes and continued through high school. PERKS is in effect and that is a program for judging effectiveness of Math programs. There is a Math and Science partnership program in the schools designed to encourage innovative teaching.

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: Listening Is a Great Skill
Listening is one of the things included in the curriculum for English/Language Arts for Kentucky. It is often an overlooked skill but is over 50% of all communication. Hearing is different from listening. Listening is really hearing and understanding what the other people are saying. If you consciously try to listen more you will become a better student. Teachers really do have things to say that can benefit you. So do your fellow students and parents. Listen up – you may hear something special and interesting.
