Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Rock Hill District Curriculum
The elementary Language Arts curriculum builds skills in reading, language conventions, research, writing, and literary response and analysis. By Grade 5, students can understand how characters are developed, how character relates to conflict in stories, and why authors use vivid words and dialogue. High school standards require more critical thinking and analysis; students read fiction, literary nonfiction, poetry and drama from the Old English through the contemporary eras.
The K-5 Math curriculum builds skills in number and operations, algebra, geometry, measurement, and data analysis and probability. By Grade 2, students learn to round numbers, compare quantities, create survey questions, work with time, and analyze three-dimensional shapes. By Grade 5, students can measure to the nearest 1/8 inch, apply divisibility rules, analyze situations that show change over time, and classify shapes as congruent. By Grade 8 students can work with functions and can represent applied problems using matrices. By Grade 12 students have taken algebra, geometry, trigonometry, and pre-calculus.

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: Top Extracurricular Activities for Students Headed to College
Your child’s extracurricular activities can make him or her an attractive prospect to colleges and universities. Nevertheless, not all clubs are created equal in the eyes of admissions officers. Consider asking your child whether he or she might be interested in any of the following.
Debate Team, Speech Club or Mock Trial. Many Americans say their biggest fear is public speaking, and yet your child will eventually have to give presentations or go to an interview. Students in debate team or speech club often develop speaking and listening skills that can make them seem more poised and confident than others in their age group. These qualities stand out.
Community Service. Service work in the community requires students to step outside their comfort zone, and working with different kinds of people can broaden a student’s perspective. Admissions officers know how to spot a token piece of service, but they value students who have shown a long-term commitment to the community.
