Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Richmond District Curriculum
At the middle school level, students learn to identify both general concepts and key ideas in the reading material and demonstrate their reading comprehension through written and oral summaries of the reading. Students are also expected to be able to research and write reports on different topics from a variety of perspectives. In high school, students are provided with more challenging literature and are expected to be able to analyze the reading in terms of voice and relate it to their own lives and the world around them.
Richmond schools adhere to at 21st Century curriculum that offers opportunities to create global learners in areas such as advanced foreign language classes, applied technology, business, healthcare, and industrial education. All elementary students are provided the opportunity to learn foreign languages as well as fine arts and music. Richmond offers excellent educational options from early childhood through high school with special programs in military, gifted, Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate, and Governor's School programs.

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: Talking at Dinner
Schedules get busy and it can be difficult to meet as a family at the dinner table. But try, as this can be an important time to reconnect with your children, develop conversation skills, and share a meal. Try to set ground rules that would help such as not using phones or other electronic devices at the table, eating at a set time, and turning off TV's or videos while your are eating. Maintain expectations for good behavior and etiquette at the table as these can be important social skills in the future at school and work.
