Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Saraland District Curriculum
In grade 3, the students look at the world and the physical characteristics of many ecosystems, countries, and continents. They begin to learn about changes over time, such as population shifts and how it has affected geography, and much more. By the middle school grades, learning becomes more isolated by actual countries and actual historical events, such as the Magna Carta, or the country of Greece and each strand is studied in detail. By high school, Social Studies becomes more centered upon certain events in time or concrete subject areas, such as World Geography, Government, or Sociology. The teaching of Social Studies in such a historical state is vital to the children growing into responsible adults.

Saraland District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Saraland City Schools follows the Alabama Standards of Learning in all subject areas. The curriculum moves from fundamentals to more complex learning in all subjects. For instance, Social Studies starts in Kindergarten and goes through 12th grade. In this subject, beginning in Kindergarten, the children are taught about basic skills, such as character traits, simple mapping, their past and their family’s changes over time. As the students go up in the grade levels, it becomes more advanced.
We currently cover the following Saraland-area school districts: Saraland 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: Determining What Electives to Take
Usually, students take high school electives on subjects that interest them. More often, students are beginning to think about their career at an early age and by the time they are in the upper grades they want to begin focusing on the college preparatory courses in the area they plan on majoring in. Doing this can also help the student be sure that their decision has been made on what they want to do with their career choice. It is a good idea to take several different electives to explore many options.
