Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Salem District Curriculum
The Language Arts curriculum at Salem City Schools begins with children taking part in the Daily 5 and CAFÉ. The Daily 5 helps children’s habits of reading, writing and working independently lead to a love of literacy. They begin by just learning just a few skills and then each year more skills are added. CAFÉ stands for Comprehension, Accuracy, Fluency, Expanded vocabulary. Each student sets goals during their conferences so that they can work to improve each area in the CAFÉ program, according to their needs.
Social Science is a combination of the science and social studies curriculum in the early elementary years. Through reading, writing, touching, manipulating, creating and questioning, the students are able to learn about these topics. This allows them to think critically about the world around them. The hands-on approach is continued as the curriculum divides and students begin to learn about the beginning of their world, the nation, and the State of Virginia.

Salem District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Salem City Schools use the resources available to help children want to learn every day. Their methods are based on the Virginia Department of Education’s Standards of Learning which defines the standards and expectations for learning at each grade level and translate into classroom teaching objectives. The data gained from assessments is used to help students achieve the established learning goals; when a child needs additional help teachers are able to focus in on the areas of weakness and help them use their strengths to understand difficult content.
We currently cover the following Salem-area school district: Salem City Schools.

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 to Survive 'The Science Fair'
Parents and children can go into a panic state at the mention of a science fair. The time and expectations that are involved can be overwhelming. To overcome these worries help the child realize that they should begin thinking and working on their project early. Talk about different projects that interest the child, then make sure that the project interests and excites the child so that they will be willing to work on it for the next few months. Make sure that there is resource material, at least three sources, that they can use for reference. Also check the experiment that is to be performed for safety. If it is not safe help aim the child in a different direction. Also make sure that any supplies needed for the experiment are readily available and that there is enough time to complete the experiment, the report and display before the due date. If all of these details are examined, and worked through, some of the fear that the words science fair bring can be alleviated.
