Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Oak Ridge District Curriculum
Students also explore the past, present, and future in social studies classes. Instruction is provided in topics such as history, geography, government, and sociology. Students learn about geography, including how people throughout the world are linked by the passage of goods and ideas. Simple economic concepts are examined as well, from the processes by which goods are produced, to the interaction of buyers and sellers in the purchasing process, to the various means by which consumers can pay for the items they purchase. In high school, classes may also incorporate anthropology, philosophy, psychology, and sociology. Many lessons are augmented with role-play and technology as well.
Knowledge and awareness of foreign cultures is developed in foreign language classes at Orange County Public Schools. Students can choose from American Sign Language, Japanese, Italian, German, and many other languages. Communication skills are enhanced through conversations and readings in the target language, as well as through writing assignments.

Oak Ridge District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Florida Sunshine State Standards offers a curriculum that strives to produce knowledgeable and sensible individuals. Required classes in mathematics, language arts, science, and social studies allow students to develop independent thinking skills, in addition to deepening their knowledge in these areas. In mathematics courses, students begin by learning about geometric shapes and basic processes of measurement. As they progress, more specific problem-solving methods are explored in a variety of topics, such as algebra, geometry, and statistics.

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: How to Write a Scholarship Essay
With rising tuition costs, many students now need financial aid to help pay for school. Loans accrue interest and may take a long time to pay back. Government and school grants are another option for financial aid but it has gotten much more difficult to qualify for them. Another option, and possibly the best one, is scholarships. Thousands of organizations and individuals are willing to give money to those who need it to pay for school and there is usually only a simple application to fill out. Some applications require essays that should be well written and thoughtful. Here are some tips to ensure that your essay is a winner: first, follow the instructions exactly. Essays that don’t follow formatting requirements or word count guidelines can be the deciding factor in whether your application is read or not. Since many scholarship organizations want to know what makes you a special individual, make sure that you focus on your strengths and mention detailed instances in which you overcame obstacles. Stating why your experiences have led you to apply for the scholarship can make your essay more personal.
