Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Palm Valley District Curriculum
Courses in language arts provide individualized and group instruction that teaches students how to communicate effectively through writing and speaking. The ability to read and analyze complex texts is also acquired with many opportunities given for practicing these skills. Elementary school language arts courses specifically focus on the development of vocabulary as well as the ability to apply taught strategies for basic reading comprehension. Middle and high school courses will use various types of resources to further develop their education in literacy and communication.
Students in St. Johns County School District take courses in the sciences that emphasize the use of the scientific method. Elementary school courses will challenge students to observe and recognize the physical and chemical properties of objects as well as compare and contrast the characteristics of plants and animals. More advanced courses will use various texts to explore scientific laws and theories in greater depth. In high school, students can also earn college credit through Advanced Placement courses in the areas of biology, chemistry, and physics.

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: Anatomy of the Ear
The ear is made up of three parts: the outer, middle, and inner ear Each part has different structures that aid in hearing. The outer ear includes the auricle, which is the fleshy part of the ear, the auditory canal, and the outer layer of the eardrum, also known as the tympanic membrane. Traveling further into the ear brings you to the middle ear, which includes the eardrum itself, a cavity known as the tympanic cavity, and the ossicles. The ossicles are 3 tiny bones that vibrate when sound waves hit them. Lastly, the inner ear has many tiny structures. The oval window, which connects the middle ear to the inner ear, is one of them. There are also thrree semicircular ducts, which have the responsibility of sending information to the brain about the head position. These three ducts are usually found to be the culprit when it comes to vertigo. The cochlea is also contained within the inner ear and it converts sound into signals that the brain can recognize. The last structure in the inner ear is the auditory tube. This structure drains fluid from the middle ear into the throat. It is also known as the Eustachian tube and blockages can cause ears or become infected. All of these structures have an important role in hearing.
