Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Oak Ridge District Curriculum
Oak Ridge Schools have implemented the transition to the Common Core Standards, providing a more complex and rigorous educational content, based on deeper critical thinking skills across the curriculum. These schools offer alternative learning options and service learning projects, to accommodate for varied students’ needs. Tennessee schools have recently celebrated their first year in the First to the Top initiative and have been able to incorporate many new strategies to enhance student learning.
Teachers and staff participate in ongoing professional development, and students reap the benefits with advanced courses to prepare for college, online libraries for research and for leisure reading, and other innovative educational opportunities. The high school in this district is ranked 6th in the state of Tennessee, offering many college and career choices for its students. Technology has also increased its reach both as a learning tool and a subject of learning, opening doors for many students.

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: How to Help Organize Students with More Than One Home
Many children and students these days come from families who do not live together full-time. Many children shuffle back and forth from one parent to the other, or maybe grandparents or other family members. The economy and many other factors have had a large impact on homes in the United States. Because of this, children have two places to keep their homework and school necessities organized. There are some ways parents and teachers can work together to help. Student agendas or planners are a great place to start. If parents (or children, if they are old enough) can write the home schedule in student planners, this can be very helpful to everyone involved. This can also be a place where parents can remind each other to send a particular homework assignment in, or that P.E. clothes or shoes are needed on specific days. Keeping everyone in the loop will help everyone, especially the child who will feel more stable and confident with a plan to go by.
