Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Somerset District Curriculum
In Science, students are taught to observe the world with an inquiring mind. Through this they build knowledge of the physical world. In middle school, among other things, students in Science study the flora and fauna of Kentucky. This is how they learn about the environment in their home state. The study involves mammals, insects, fish, wild flowers trees and shrubs among many others. In this way students can develop interest in environmental aspects of their world. The circle of life from algae to amphibians is learned at this level.
In Literacy, reading and writing, how text is comprehended and how writing is created is the focus. Writing well includes giving words to our experiences in a logical and clear and concise way. Students are encouraged to write about their experiences from the earliest age. Students are also taught to express their opinions through their written expression. They are taught to organize and convey their ideas and thoughts through purposeful writing.

Somerset District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Somerset school districts follow the curriculum of the Kentucky Department of Education. The Kentucky Core Academic Standards are outlined in the curriculum from the Department and teachers meet these standards when they design their lessons. Common Core Standards are expected for the basic academic subjects and follow a progressive manner whereby students deepen their knowledge during the course of their education. Students are also encouraged to join extracurricular groups or sports teams so that they are also engaged in pursuing their personal interests.

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: Summer Jobs
Summer jobs can help you to be a better student. How you may ask? First, a summer job helps you to see and understand what is involved in a working life. By seeing this, you can understand what you need to do to be a successful student. The discipline you learn by working for pay will help you establish that same discipline in other areas of your life which will make you a better student. Second, you get a chance to see if you would enjoy a career in the area in which you are working. For instance a job at a camp can help you to know if you would enjoy teaching as a career. A job in retail will help you to see if commerce is your thing. It is just as good to see that you would not like something as to see that you would. Then thirdly, you have a chance to make some money which can be saved for college, used to pay current expenses or just enjoyed. A summer job is a win/win situation no matter what your economic status.
