Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Richmond District Curriculum
In Language Arts focus is on reading, writing, speaking and listening and using technology skills. A reading recovery program is in effect which identifies students for help to achieve the goals of the curriculum. The regular curriculum is scaffolded with extra resources to help elementary students reach their potential. Writing is also a key component of learning, and students are expected to write for different purposes, with clarity and logic.
In Mathematics, the Kentucky Department of Education curriculum is followed and a Math recovery program is in effect. This is an intervention to help students develop the tools they need to understand quantitative reasoning. These programs supplement the regular curriculum at the elementary level with extra resources. Students learn different topics in Math, like geometry or statistics, with the goal of being able to become independent 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: How Technology Can Help with All Subjects
The use of technology is becoming the focus of curriculum in all school subjects. In Language Arts, use of the computer is an essential communication tool. Students need to be computer literate at younger ages just to keep up with the times. Parents need to be prepared to provide computer time within their means as much as possible if their children are to succeed. Computer time can be a home computer or providing access to public computers for your child. Whether we like it or not having computers available for your child is an essential of modern education if your child is to succeed.
