Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Palm City District Curriculum
Students study a variety of subjects in social studies courses, including American History, Geography, Economics, and Government. In elementary school, past and present U.S. events are presented to students, as well as basic landforms and bodies of water. Middle school courses will focus on understanding Earth’s ecosystems and the physical and cultural characteristics of cultures and places. In high school, students explore concepts in the areas of psychology, sociology, and world history. Complex texts and documentaries are some of the tools used to enhance the learning process.
Developing proficiency in a variety of mathematical concepts is the goal of mathematics courses at Martin County Schools. Elementary school students begin their education by learning about numerical relationships and basic mathematical operations. In middle school, courses focus on writing and interpreting more complex equations and analyzing graphs and tables. This task is completed with the use of real-world simulations and group activities. High school courses explore subjects such as trigonometry, calculus, and financial literacy.

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 Are Phonemes?
Many curricula mention the importance of teaching phonemic awareness as part of the process that teaches students how to read. But what are phonemes? They are usually defined as being the smallest unit of sound when it comes to speech. When combined with or subtracted from other phonemes and parts of speech, words can be formed. The English language has 42 phonemes and each has a unique symbol. Letters will represent these sounds and this is what we teach children to recognize when they are learning to read. For example, the word ‘rat’ contains 3 phonemes- ‘r’ ‘a’ and ‘t’. A child that has developed phonemic awareness will be able to understand how these letters sound when spoken or that replacing the ‘r’ phoneme with a ‘b’ phoneme changes the meaning of the word completely. Knowing how to manipulate these sounds is an essential part of communication.
