Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Petersburg District Curriculum
The Social Studies curriculum at Petersburg City Public Schools starts off with children understanding the basic difference between life today and life long ago. They also have to understand the differences between near and far, above and below, left and right, and behind and in front of. Once they have learned these basics they are ready to discover the mysteries that other cultures have made on us. They study Greek and Roman history to see how it has influenced us.
A part of the Language Arts curriculum is writing; from the first day of school, students learn the difference between pictures and words, and then they learn how to spell phonetically. By third grade they learn pre-writing strategies, such as story webs. In the sixth they take what they have learned so far and begin to write narratives, description, expositions and pieces of persuasion. Upon graduations these students have learned how to use a variety of media to form the basis of an argument or an informational analysis in writing.

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: Helping a Shy Child At Back-To-School Time
A shy child worries about what they will face in the coming year. It may be a new teacher, new school, or a new schedule but no matter what it is they are too shy to know how to face it. Parents can help by, first recognizing that this is part of the child’s temperament and by not trying to change this characteristic. Then find out about shyness, either on-line or at a library. After this knowledge has been gained, think about the child and how they see the world. Use this knowledge to talk, patiently and quietly, with them and listen to their concerns. After this a parent can then begin to face the issues and help the child with the issues.
