Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Spartanburg District Curriculum
Spartanburg Public Schools have adopted the Common Core State Standards as a way to require these higher level thinking skills from their students. Common Core English Language Arts standards require students to not only learn how to read, but to invite students to also interpret what they read. Students are asked to use their language arts skills to both read and write across the subjects.
In Common Core aligned math classes students are required to focus on fewer aspects of mathematics, but at a greater depth than in the past. Rather than have ten units on ten concepts throughout the year students may only focus on five or six concepts in a school year and practice it until completely mastered. For example, rather than simply introduce basic addition, students will master their addition facts, and be able to complete complex addition problems and even add four digits in second grade. From there, students develop a sense of mathematic operations and how to manipulate equations and perform higher math functions.

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: Financing Post-Secondary Education
The thought of paying for college can be daunting, but it’s never too early (or too late) to help your child plan for college. Help your son or daughter begin saving money as early as possible. Encourage them to give up the things they want in order to save money for something they need, a quality education. Teach them to work hard and save their earnings. A student who works 20 hours a week while going to classes can pay the average tuition at a State University. Not only will they be able to pay their tuition, but studies say students who work while in school are more successful academically because they learn time management skills. Giving your child these simple financial keys can set them up to successfully complete their education with little to no debt.
