Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Paducah District Curriculum
In the schools in Paducah, the English Language Arts curriculum is about teaching your child to read, write, speak, listen, observe, inquire and use technology to communicate. Writing is very important and the Kentucky writing program is in place wherein teachers use a department program that guides them to analyze your child’s writing and communication abilities. There are numerous reading and writing core concepts expected at each grade level and the goals of the program in your child’s classroom are for your child to learn to apply their abilities.
The goals in Mathematics include teaching each child the basic math skills and teaching them to apply them. In elementary school students are taught to add, subtract, multiply and divide. For example, in grade two, use of numbers for adding and subtracting is expected. By eighth grade, algebra and geometry are often used. In high school, the curriculum expands on these concepts.

Paducah District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Paducah Public Schools follow the curriculum set out by the Kentucky Department of Education which outlines all areas of instruction that should be covered in core subjects. There are initiatives to ensure that these areas are covered such as PERKS (Program Effectiveness Review for Kentucky Schools), a program in Math that is in effect in the schools and is a checklist of Math practices that schools should follow. The ability to teach oneself is essential. Students must be able to read, listen, explore, and follow directions to understand key concepts. Application of these skills in school can give teachers an opportunity to address gaps in understanding, confusion, or misconceptions.
We currently cover the following Paducah-area school district: Paducah Public Schools.

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.

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 Your Child Become a Better Reader
The first step to helping your child become a better reader is to read to him or her. This can start even before he or she is born. Reading to a child throughout his or her early years is a good way to help him or her learn to read and to enjoy the printed word. Bedtime stories are wonderful. If you read to your child every night you will foster reading skills. The more your child reads and the more you read to your child, the more successful he or she will be in school.
