Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Tuckahoe District Curriculum
Social studies courses in Fairfax County Schools seek to increase students’ knowledge of historical events and their effects on contemporary times. Students in lower grade levels will be introduced to important historical figures and basic principles of the U.S. government. In middle school, social studies courses examine these topics in greater depth, as well as exploring the geography, history, and governments of the world. Maps, charts, and other tools may be used to present information in these courses.
Fairfax County Public Schools also offer fine arts courses as part of their curriculum. Specific skills can be acquired in the areas of dance, music, theater, and the visual arts. Students will evaluate and critique past and present works of art, as well as their own. An appreciation for the history of these arts is also provided. Performing arts courses give students the opportunity to participate in one or more performances throughout the school year.

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: Differences in Elementary and Middle School ELA
The transition from learning to read to reading to learn is a vital one—if students have not reached a level at which they can read to learn by the time they are in fourth grade, they will most likely struggle in middle school. There will little if any additional instruction in phonemic awareness and phonics, as students’ knowledge in these areas should already be engrained. Students are expected to read grade-level texts fluently, and the focus becomes the comprehension of texts. Studies of the craft of literature will be introduced in middle school and offer student’s opportunities to write their own pieces. Additionally, the historical, social, and cultural contexts of literature is explored to help students understand its importance in learning.
