Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Shepherdsville District Curriculum
Shepherdsville students study English and Language Arts throughout the grades. They learn about reading, writing, speaking and listening along with the skills of inquiring and observing. There is a core set of standards called the Common Core State Standards for English/Language Arts and children are assessed regularly to ensure that they are meeting them. For instance in writing it is emphasized that the ability to write well is a standard requirement in all careers and professions.
In Practical Living and Career Studies students become aware that their physical health and well being cannot be sacrificed for academics. The curriculum in these areas is designed to address the growing concern about children’s health. Minimum requirements are set out and your child’s school ensures that they are met by covering all standards and assessing students in a variety of formal and informal manners.

Shepherdsville District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Shepherdsville schools follow the curriculum designated by the Kentucky Department of Education. There is a set of Core Standards for most subject areas and your child is expected to meet these. Many resources are provided to the schools from the department to ensure that your child’s teacher has the tools needed to enhance your child’s learning. The overall goal of the curriculum design is to introduce students to key topics in each subject and then continuously build upon them toward more advanced work.
We currently cover the following Shepherdsville-area school district: Bullitt County Public Schools.

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: It’s Never Too Early to Read
Some recommendations exist that say that reading to your child before birth is useful. There is no way to prove that but certainly reading from the earliest ages is helpful. Start by reading a bedtime story to your child every night even when he/she is a baby. Later your child can start to read to you. Successful students even read to their parents and their parents read to them through high school. Reading using whatever method you wish is your child’s window to the world and the earlier you encourage it the better. When buying gifts for your child always include a book. You never know where it will take you. It's never too early to read for learning and for fun!
