Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Norfolk District Curriculum
Norfolk Public Schools are currently going through an expert-guided curriculum revision process to increase academic achievement at all levels. This involves looking for opportunities to create programs that are meaningful to the students. Areas of technology, communication, and design are all aspects of learning that will be increasingly offered as subjects in which students may take courses.
In elementary school, students should be able to demonstrate writing ability at grade level, creating ideas, topics and writing cohesive assignments. Middle school students need to be able to read out loud with accuracy and read challenging texts Students at the 7th and 8th grade level should be able to analyze the main point of a text, pick out main ideas, tone, author's position and the reliability of the arguments used in the text.

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: The Importance of Breakfast
Regardless of the morning time crunch, don't let breakfast fall through the cracks, it is the more important meal of the day. When your child wakes up, their body has been resting and fasting for 6-8 hours on average. During that time the metabolism has slowed down. Eating breakfast can help rev your child's engine back up and give them energy that lasts throughout the day. Not only will your child be less hungry throughout their school hours, but eating breakfast may also help them concentrate and perform better.
