Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Oxford District Curriculum
Oxford City Schools has a data-driven, performance-based program set in place to give each child a complete, well-rounded education on all ends of the instructional spectrum. To supplement this philosophy of teaching, routine grade-level assessments are given in reading and math to monitor the progress in each learning strand. This is another way of shedding the light on the students' needs and also is another tool for the teachers to be aware of exactly what the students know and what they still need to learn. This testing also communicates how the children are doing as a whole.
As the students enter middle and high school, there are more choices in terms of class offerings. The students are able to branch out and discover classes such as foreign language, advanced mathematics, honor's courses in English, science, and history, agriculture, health occupation, building trades, and much more. Having developed the solid foundation in the elementary years, the students are able to succeed in these higher level courses and be ready for the future.

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: What is Differentiated Instruction?
Differentiated Instruction occurs when a teacher uses data-driven teaching techniques. The teacher is able to look at an assessment of a particular learning strand, such as a pre-test, a check-for-understanding assessment, or a post-test, and determine what students know the content of that strand, what students are somewhat familiar with the content (but do not show mastery), and what students are not familiar with the content. By looking at the test, the teacher is then able to "differentiate" the classroom instruction by grouping the children.
What may look like a whole group lesson may not be. The students may have work based on their skill level, and the teacher may have a small group to the side doing a guided remedial lesson on that skill. There are many ways to differentiate instruction, and not one is necessarily better than the other. The important thing is this: the teacher is not assuming all students know the same concepts at the same time. Differentiated instruction is a way to individualize instruction and focus more on an exact concept with the students based on their needs.
