Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Poquoson District Curriculum
Language Arts, at Poquoson City Public Schools, begins with the students learning the value of letter recognition. This skill is used throughout their education. In first and second grade each student extends their skills through the Language Arts Extension Center. This center uses a theme-based outlook to help children become better students in this area while learning about animal classification, author studies, reptiles and other topics.
Students at Poquoson City Public Schools begin learning Mathematics by associating numbers with objects. They are then able to use this to learn how to take two sets of objects and add or subtract them from each other. They soon learn the other functions of numbers such as multiplying, or in algebraic equations. In high school they have the option of extending their foundation of learning as they take geometry, algebra, or calculus, allowing them to become real problem-solvers.

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 to Expect in Sixth-Grade Social Studies
Each year in Social Studies bring new skills and new topics for students to learn. Each state has their own educational guidelines to follow, but there are some standard ideas that are covered in all curricula. First, most states cover Ancient Civilizations in the sixth grade. This takes the children to the beginnings of all civilization, including the geography, climate and landmarks of each area. This area of education helps build students thinking skills, such as linking, sequencing or interpreting events. Students also begin to learn study skills in the sixth grade which can help them to succeed well past graduation. This skill needs developing as most students do not come by this naturally. If a child asks for assistance, step in gladly and show support. This will allow them to feel free to come and ask for help as they go through the next several years.
