Educating Our Parents: Understanding the North Myrtle Beach District Curriculum
In Math, students have a greater focus than in the past. Students study fewer standards in any given school year, but with greater depth, whereas before, the same concepts had to be practiced year after year. The Common Core allows teachers to spend more time in a particular area of mathematical study, so that students master it with long-term retention. Throughout the course of study, they still cover the same information and content.
The English Language Arts strands consist of work with a variety of texts, including both non-fiction and literature. Student practice reading and synthesizing all types of writing, as well as, practicing composing their own work. The ability to read and write diverse text types helps students in all content areas, such as science and social studies, as well has provides them will marketable skills for the job market. Students also use these texts to respond in writing and develop critical, analytic writing skills needed for success in college.

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: Support Your Child Through His or Her Teacher
Building strong relationships between home and school is often overlooked as a way to help your child succeed in the classroom. However, parents who have positive relationships with their child’s teacher help their children have a positive attitude about school. A few ways to build this relationship might include: volunteering to help in the classroom occasionally, if you aren’t able to help at school, offer to work on something at home, such as cutting out or sorting materials. Ask the teacher if he or she has any supply needs for the upcoming month and offer to donate some of the necessary items. Keep lines of communication open; remember there are two sides to every story, be sure to get both before you jump to conclusions. Teachers work hard to help your child to be successful, if they know they have your support it just might make their job a little bit easier.
