Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Radford District Curriculum
The environment is an influence in the science curriculum from the start. In the first few years the students begin to learn to use their senses to explore. These senses help them as they study nature, including adaptations, and ecosystems. When these students enter high school they have an option of taking biology II which studies Connelly’s Run Stream and its watershed, looking for changes biologically and chemically. An appreciation of nature becomes a part of each student that graduates from Radford City School.
The use of language is developed beginning with building knowledge of the oral language. This is built by working on choral reading and memorizing and reciting short poem. This skill is expanded as the students begin to use their voices and words to speak to individuals and groups. By the time they have finished school, each student has developed comfort in using the spoken word in formal settings.

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 Practice Math During the Summer
It seems that when students return to school in the fall, they have forgotten a lot of the knowledge that they worked so hard to obtain. To help them be more successful in their mathematics classes in the fall there are a few activities that can be worked into the summer, or break time fun. One activity is to play games with the children that involve dice, or counting. This will help to maintain a certain number-sense in the younger children. For the middle and older child, encourage the use of the internet, but guide them to websites that have activities that will help to maintain their math skills. No matter which way the math skills are maintained, while working with the child, make sure they do not become frustrated. This could lead to a dislike of the subject, so they would be suspicious of any activity or class that has to deal with mathematics.
