Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Palm Harbor District Curriculum
Mathematics courses in Pinellas County elementary schools aim to give students an understanding of basic mathematic facts and concepts, using models and other hands-on activities. As they advance in grade level, the ability to write and solve basic to complex equations will be developed. Middle school students will be given real-world examples to assist in the learning process. In high school, students will incorporate technology into the exploration of subjects that include trigonometry, calculus, and discrete mathematics.
Science courses at Pinellas County Schools use a variety of techniques, including collaboration with peers and guided exploration to enhance the learning process. Students in grades K-5 will learn about basic scientific properties in the areas of earth and space, physical, and life science. In middle school, students will begin to explore the influence of society on scientific knowledge and investigate the effects of specific laws and forces on the world around them. High school science courses will build a strong foundation in the areas of chemistry, physics, and biology.

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: Divisions of the Nervous System
The nervous system can be separated into two main divisions: the central nervous system and the peripheral nervous system. Each division contains different structures and has different responsibilities. The central nervous system contains the brain and spinal cord. This system is your body’s control center and processes all of the information that is sent to it to keep the body functioning normally. It also controls aspects of your personality, emotions, language, and many other higher functions. The rest of the nervous system comprises the peripheral nervous system. The cranial and spinal nerves, as well as any other receptors and neurons are included. This system can be further divided into the somatic and autonomic nervous system. Each of these systems is responsible for the stimulation of muscles and tissues in the body. More specifically, the somatic nervous system controls your skeletal muscles, such as the muscles in your hands, legs, and neck. The autonomic nervous system is responsible for the stimulation of involuntary muscles, such as your bladder, intestine, and veins.
