Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Tuscumbia District Curriculum
In Science, the teachers use hands-on techniques and differentiated instruction for all students. The Science curriculum consists of a variety of educational tools to help the students in the areas of discovery and critical thinking. Critical thinking skills take time to develop and are begun in the very early grades. Students that have discovery and these types of thinking skills are vital to the success in the higher level math and science courses. The Science curriculum also consists of learning about the scientific process, minds-on and hands-on manipulation of materials to prove or disprove a theory or assumption, and, of course, literacy within the subject.

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: Teaching Critical Thinking Skills
Beginning at an early age, students need to be taught on how to think. With our technological society and television and video games, it is very easy for children to fall prey to not having to think on their own, as thinking is already done for them in many aspects of their lives. However, critical thinking is crucial in life; throughout school, college, and the work force. Teachers must teach children how to discover the unknown on their own and how to solve problems by working them out independently to ensure lifelong success for the students.
