Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Richlands District Curriculum
Geography is a part of the social studies curriculum. The younger children learn the geography in their immediate world, such as their classroom and their homes. As they mature, they expand the area of study to include the state of Virginia and the United States. By the time they graduate, the students will have studied the layout and cultures of various areas of the world and they will see how each area affects the rest of the world.
Word Study is a part of the English curriculum throughout the elementary and middle school grades. Students have word walls which have sight words that they are expected to learn. They also learn how to decode unfamiliar words by using different skills such as separating the prefixes or suffixes from the main word to identify the meaning of the word. These skills are honed so that when students enter the world, after graduation, they will be able to read any text knowing that they can understand it, even if some of the words are unfamiliar.

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: Back to School
When the new school year begins, parents go into it wanting the children to succeed. This means more than helping with homework. Parents need to ask students specific questions about their day in school and, as they answer, set aside everything else and pay attention to their words. This shows the student the parents’ desire to be involved in their lived. In addition to this, stay in touch with the teacher. Let them know if you have any concerns, or what you have observed works best with the child. Also, when a child has given something their best effort, make sure to praise them. Other things that a parent can do to help make the year successful is to read newsletters, read the child’s textbooks, and volunteer. Remember, success is not just measured by grades, but also by the relationship that they build and maintain with their parents.
