Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Pulaski District Curriculum
The Social Studies curriculum at Pulaski County Public Schools combines history with skills learned in reading or other classes. During their education, students learn how each subject enriches others. The history of the U.S. prior to 1865 is enriched through books such “A Journey to the New World,” “The Starving Time,” and “If You Live in Colonial Times." This is then built on as students learn about the government in Virginia, at the local and state level.
Science begins with students learning about the basics, such as the simple parts of plants. This is added onto when teachers use hands-on experiences to help children see that science is in the world around them. The study of plants is extended when students and teachers develop a window farming experience and use aquaponics to grow and produce strawberries. These excitement building activities lead the way to classes in high school, like biology, or chemistry, where they can experience the world of science through more hands-on activities.

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: How to Motivate Summer Readers
As summer rolls through, opportunities abound to help students stay fresh in their educational skills. One such skill is their reading ability. This skill can be improved upon through motivation of readers throughout the summer. One way to do this is to set a goal of the number of pages or books the child thinks they can read before school begins again. This can be rewarded by small tokens for intermediate goals, such as stickers, or small toys. Then when they meet their ultimate goal, perhaps reward it with a larger item, such as a sleepover. Another way to encourage summer readers is to check out the local libraries. Many offer summer reading programs that offer incentives or activities to keep children reading for fun. These efforts in reading will also be rewarded when school begins again in the fall and the child does not struggle to start reading again.
