Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Rome District Curriculum
The key concepts in the Language Arts Curriculum are to be able to read different forms of texts and literature, be able to apply one’s experience to the reading material, be able to write and speak on the reading material, and listen for directions and information. Students are expected to be able to apply information from previously learned material to their writing, interpret complex text and literature both fiction and nonfiction, and evaluate the reading material using critical analysis skills.
The Math curriculum is based on students learning the basics of arithmetic including computational skills, measurement, and simple algebra and geometry in the elementary grades. Students expand their knowledge of these topics and are introduced to statistics. In high school students continue with algebra and geometry and have the options to take more advanced classes such as trigonometry and calculus. Students acquire essential problem solving skills which include abstract reasoning, attention to detail, and making sense of mathematical structures and models.

Rome District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Rome City School District includes six Elementary Schools, one grade 5-6 Upper Elementary School, one Middle School, and one High School which has been in existence since the 1860’s and was one of the first free academies in the state. The district also oversees a Pre-Kindergarten which is located at the former Clough Elementary School. The district has set as its mission to provide a nurturing, and challenging environment for the students. They also place an emphasis on valuing and encouraging diversity in the student population. The academic standards call upon students to conduct increasingly complex work over the years, and sets a clear path of objectives to help students arrive at that ability.
We currently cover the following Rome-area school district: Rome City School District.

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.
