Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Thomasville District Curriculum
Established by the Common Core State Standards, the English/Language Arts curriculum is rigorous throughout both Thomasville City schools and Davidson County schools. Beginning in elementary, the ELA standards focus on reading, writing, listening, and speaking, which of course are skills necessary in all subject areas, and thus support the standards for Math, Science, and Social Studies.
Adopted for implementation in the 2012-2013 school year, the ELA standards and curriculum have an emphasis on information collection, critical reading, and quality research. These skills are absolutely essential due to the “information overload” that is available thanks to the internet and 24-hour TV news channels, smartphones and readily-affordable digital tablets. Further, engaging students in topics relevant to their lives will help them actively seek the knowledge that will best help them as members of society.

SchoolTutoring Academy’s tutoring programs for Thomasville students start with a free academic assessment with an Academic Director. Our flagship tutoring programs are available for $199.99/month which include regular one-on-one tutoring, academic mentorship, bi-monthly progress reports, learning profiles, and parental conference calls.
Thomasville District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The districts in Thomasville follow the nationally recognized Common Core Standards and the North Carolina Content Standards. The curriculum has many goals including fostering critical thinking and analysis as well as problem-solving skills. Content is taught so that students grow within each subject during their school years as each subject focuses in on its core topics and builds upon students’ prior knowledge.

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: Be Well-Rounded, But Be Successful
Whether it’s college, the military, or the workforce you’re headed to after graduation, all of these options will probably require an application. Most college admissions officers will tell you that they prefer students whose applications show that they are well-rounded rather than having excelled in only one area; many employers will tell you the same. This advice doesn’t mean that you should take difficult classes and play three musical instruments and get a role in the school theater production and play five sports, while earning an Eagle Scout rank and volunteering at the local hospital. Instead, it means to do more than just one thing, and do them well. Balance academics with extracurriculars, and make community service a priority as well. Choose endeavors that you enjoy, because enjoyment will lead to success in those activities. Quality counts more than quantity.
