Educating Our Parents: Understanding the North Decatur District Curriculum
In elementary school, students will gain the ability to solve basic problems using simple mathematical operations, in addition to recognizing all types of shapes and numbers. Middle school courses use models and graphs to reinforce associations between functions and other equations. Theorems will also be introduced at this grade level. High school courses explore advanced topics in areas that include algebra, pre-calculus, and geometry. Methods of incorporating technology through the use of graphing calculators and other software is also be examined so students are familiar with computational tools.
In social studies courses, students will study the effects of past historical acts on the present and potential future. The topic areas of geography, government, and economic will be given much attention in grades K-5. A variety of sources will be given to students in an attempt to encourage multiple perspectives on these topics. Middle school courses will begin to explore World History and compare geographic characteristics of other countries and their governments to the U.S. As they progress to high school, students will focus on U.S. and World History and government.

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: Benefits of Private College
Private colleges tend to be more selective than public universities, but the benefit for many students is that private colleges also tend to be more focused on student support. This means that they offer many support opportunities, but also because of their nature, tend to be better for some students. Private colleges tend to be smaller, and as such, have smaller class sizes. Many students find it easier to do well in smaller classes; they find their professors to be more accessible and helpful and are able to build relationships with their professors in order to seek out help. They also often enjoy the tight knit community in which to take that last step before transitioning to a fully independent adulthood. Private colleges tend to individualize students’ learning experience, in general, which can be helpful for students’ success.
