Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Summerville District Curriculum
In Language Arts, students learn to distinguish points of view, analyze the meaning of words using Greek or Latin parts, use context to restate or understand an unknown word, use planning strategies to organize writing, write book reviews and newsletter articles, and can find information on a topic of interest and restate the information in their own words. High school students write essays, memoirs, poems, technical pieces, career-oriented pieces, and speeches. They can design and present research projects using a variety of sources.
In Math, by Grade 5, students can add and subtract fractions, determine symmetry, use a protractor, and analyze how the way that data is collected affects the data set. Math instruction builds to Pre-calculus and Probability and Statistics in Grade 12. In Elementary Science, students study plants and animals, weather, matter, and forces and motion. By Grade 5, they can generate research questions and hypotheses, have used a technological design process to create a solution or product, and can use tools and instruments when conducting an investigation. Later topics include ecology, human systems, and chemistry and physics.

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: How to Help Your Child With Word Problems
For some children, word problems are easier than rote practice, but for other children a word problem is a tough challenge. If your child is having trouble with word problems in math, here are a couple things you can do:
Encourage the child to read the problem aloud. Reading sometimes feels out of place in a math assignment; the act of reading aloud ensures that your child doesn’t miss valuable clues. “More than,” “take away,” and “share” are common words in elementary word problems. Practice showing these ideas to your child with drawings or gestures.
Sometimes drawing helps. Ask your child to draw a diagram to represent the problem. This process can have many benefits. For kinesthetic or visual learners, this may be the ideal way to pose a problem. Sometimes, the drawing will trigger a memory of the lesson as it was drawn on the chalkboard. And taking the time to draw the picture helps your child think through the details of the problem.
