Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Roanoke District Curriculum
English focuses on written and oral communication skills. Students in Language Arts and Reading learn to research and write on different topics and provide material to support a point of view. In Reading, students learn to identify key ideas, and concepts, and to give both oral and written summaries and analysis of the reading material. Language usage including grammar is part of the high school instruction in writing and composition. Composition includes learning to write for different purposes.
Mathematics builds on basic computation through geometry and algebraic functions. Science incorporates technology, experimental learning, and didactic study of the world. History covers current events, world studies, as well as Virginia history. Middle and high school students build on this foundation with courses offered in a wide variety of subjects. Students are allowed to focus study on arts, engineering, mass communication, performing arts, visual arts/museum studies, technology, and skilled apprenticeship. Dual enrollment and Advanced Placement opportunities are available to all students.

Roanoke District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Roanoke schools offer comprehensive instruction in a core of English, Mathematics, Science, and History with supplemental education in Foreign Languages, Fine Arts, and Physical Education. A wide range of elective opportunities exist for students which are developed around innovations in learning and changes in our increasingly global society. As the curriculum is designed to build on a year-by-year progression, the schools use comprehensive assessments to determine that students have reached the expectations for learning at their grade level. The data gathered from student assessments is used to help students on an individual basis and to guide instructional planning by the teachers.
We currently cover the following Roanoke-area school district: Roanoke County Public Schools.

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: Allowing Your Child to Be Challenged
Being a parent is hard. You go from doing everything to nurture a baby to letting them drive off to a movie and there is a lot of time in between. An important lesson to teach your children before they are adults is how to persevere through a challenge and not give up. They might not always succeed in their quest. But it is important to teach them how to try. Although it might be tempting to swoop in and help them be it tying their shoe, working on that math problem, or building the science project - hold back sometimes. Frustration can be a good teacher.
