Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Springfield District Curriculum
Students are required to take foreign language courses in their educational career at Fairfax County Public Schools. Languages provided include French, Spanish, Japanese, Latin, and many others. The ability to communicate effectively through writing and speaking is emphasized, as well as the interpretation of given texts. This involves the usage of both speaking and listening skills, as well as knowledge of effective presentational strategies. Students also gain the ability communicate on an interpersonal level, in which they engage in one-on-one conversations with peers in verbal or written formats.
Fairfax County Public Schools provide mathematics courses that require students to obtain a solid foundation in a variety of areas, including algebra, geometry, statistics, and probability. In elementary school students will learn basic strategies and operations, in addition to recognizing patterns, geometric figures, and symbols. As they progress grade level, they will use these skills to write and solve increasingly complex equations. In middle and high school, students will use a variety of technological tools and other types of resources to assist them in the problem-solving.

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.

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.

Nurturing a child with special needs has its unique challenges along with many rewards. Together with community programs, schools, support groups, and other family members, parents can ensure they provide the necessary life lessons for their children. To live comfortably, and successfully, children with special needs must have opportunities to learn some of life’s most important lessons—how to live in this world. It is essential to teach these lessons in special education and at home. Throughout their lives, all children need to gain these skills, but for students with special needs, this knowledge is especially important. Living a high-quality life will require interaction with others and insight into personal strengths and weaknesses. By focusing on life skills, in addition to academic requirements, teachers and parents best serve the needs of these students.
