Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Powder Springs District Curriculum
In elementary math, students practice adding and subtracting numbers with answers up to 18, and perform addition and subtraction problems with 3 digit numbers. They also learn to multiply numbers up to 10 x 10, and grade appropriate lessons in measurement and Geometry. Fourth grade teaches the same skills as for third grade, but for numbers up to 1,000,000 and common fractions. Students also learn to add and subtract whole numbers, and fractions that have the same denominator.
By high school, in Math, students learn to place rational numbers on a number line and convert fractions, decimals, and percentages. They also learn to write numbers in scientific notation and exponential form, and convert between those and the standard form. Students are expected to become proficient in measuring the area and circumference of circles, and describe and group 1, 2 and 3 dimensional shapes. These skills are tied to real world uses so students can see the relevancy of their math education.

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: Healthy Eating for the Summer
The summer is an easy time for children and teens to eat more unhealthy foods than they may during the school year. Play dates, pool time, family or neighborhood cookouts, camps or other activities your child may do more often during the summer usually are opportunities for ice cream, hot dogs, hamburgers, pizza and sodas – these are easy and affordable treats that can be delivered, ordered or brought in for lunches and snacks. Even if your child may be in the house much of the summer, they will have access more often to food, making it easy for them to eat when they want. Make a pact with your child to continue the healthy eating habits formed during the school year. Come to an agreement on which additional snacks or foods they can have when not at home or in the house more often. Part of the pact should be determining an amount of activity during the day or week. Allow them to make the choices and provide guidance as they do.
