Educating Our Parents: Understanding the North Augusta District Curriculum
In English Language Arts, students learn to work with both literature and non-fiction to practice synthesizing a variety of types of text. Under these standards students will be prepared to read and write in a real world setting. The writing curriculum asks that students learn to write for personal reflection, for informational and persuasive purposes, and in analytic forms. In reading and writing, word study is an important part of the curriculum.
Common Core Math requires students to delve more deeply into concepts than in the past. Students master all aspects of each benchmark before moving on to the next standard and the benchmarks are assessed through the statewide assessments given. This promotes greater understanding over the long term and increases the mind’s ability to solve similar problems in the future. By high school, students are expected to be able to look at any type of math problem and know what the best way to solve it would be.

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: “Cramming” for the Test
Many students wait until the day before a major exam to begin studying; however, studies indicate that this may not be the best way to achieve high scores. Students who spend shorter durations of time over several days studying have increased focus and higher retention than those who study for longer amounts of time on a single day. For example a student who studies only 20 minutes a day over the course of five days tends to score higher than the student who spends three hours studying in a single day even though the first student spent only 100 minutes studying and the second studied for 180 minutes.
