Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Shelby District Curriculum
In Math, students learn concepts in much greater detail, acquiring a better conceptual understanding, mastery of procedural skills, and ability to apply the information to the real world. This curriculum meets both statewide and national standards in education, using realistic scenarios to teach children about numbers, geometry, algebra, and data analysis. Advanced Placement classes in Calculus and Statistics are available for high school students to earn dual credit for high school and college.
In English language arts, students learn vocabulary terms in greater depth as they use these words in various contexts, use textual evidence to support their responses, and read an equal abundance of informational texts and literature. After establishing the basic ability to read and comprehend more complicated texts, students are introduced to literature, both from around the world, including classics and mythology, and great works from renowned American writers. The goal is for students to be able to utilize all the strategies they learn in many texts and contexts.

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: Abstract of a Middle School Social Studies Lesson
The following is an overview of a fifth grade social studies lesson. The project centers on social studies content: family history and nationality. The learners are about ten to eleven years old and are in fifth grade. The entire project will take one and a half months to complete. There are three learning goals. The first is that the students will gain an understanding of several cultural aspects of a country that represents their nationality as well as those of many other countries. Secondly, the students will improve their presentation skills. Lastly, the students will develop their research skills. There are also five objectives. First, students will describe many cultural aspects of a country that represents their nationality to their classmates. Secondly, students will use computers and other sources to conduct research on the country of their choice. Thirdly, the students will distinguish between cultural aspects of several countries discussed in class. Next, students will write a 600- to 900-word report that discusses several cultural aspects of their country. Finally, students will complete several projects that will be displayed during a culminating “Nationality Day” project.
