Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Tucker District Curriculum
Mathematics courses in DeKalb County elementary schools attempt to strengthen reasoning and problem-solving skills with the use of technology and hands-on activities. As they advance in grade level, classes will focus on teaching students how to write expressions and equations and analyze numerical relationships. High school courses will include subject matter from algebra, geometry, statistic, and probability.
Science courses provide students with skills that will allow them to be proficient and knowledgeable in a variety of scientific topics. An emphasis on fieldwork and investigation is present in all courses throughout every grade level. Students in grades K-5 will identify and discuss the physical attributes of the world around them, in addition to learning how to effectively communicate scientific ideas. Middle school students will continue their exploration of life science and will be introduced to the concept of evolution. The knowledge obtained will be further built upon, with electives in the areas of physiology, geology, 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: Considerations About Private Colleges
Private colleges are becoming more and more expensive, but with this expense can come many benefits and can be defrayed through scholarships, work study programs, and federal loans. Because private colleges are funded by tuition, they tend to treat students more like customers, which means they want to make sure students have a positive experience. This often translates to lifestyle concerns, such as the quality of the food in the dining hall, on campus activities, and the like. Private colleges tend to be smaller and try to focus on the needs of the individual students, which includes academic support. Class sizes tend to be smaller, as well, which can be of great help to students who can be overwhelmed in a larger classroom experience.
