Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Vinton District Curriculum
Students in Roanoke County Public Schools begin learning the language arts skill of writing in kindergarten when they learn the sounds of the letters of the alphabet. They also begin to learn how letters can join together to make words. By the time they are in second grade they are able to spend one hour every day learning about more aspects of writing in workshops. This foundation continues to be built upon as the students progress through middle school and high school. Students then can choose to take writing courses throughout their time in high school, including classes in journalism.
Mathematics is taught by helping children learn numeration and number sense. After this they begin to join numbers together to solve an equation. This knowledge is added on as they learn subtraction, multiplication, division and the different topics with mathematics. In high school they can choose to take a statistics class that will show them how to use these numbers to collect, analyze, and draw conclusions.

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: Should Graduates Take a Gap Year?
Students oftentimes feel like they would like to take a gap year, or a year off, after graduating high school. This can be a confusing decision which can be made clearer with a few ideas. Many universities encourage students to take a year off before coming to university. This does not mean that the student will not ever go to college, they just need a break. University officials believe that a gap year can help with the young adults’ focus and readiness for academia. There is also a better chance that these students will complete their education, which is the goal of schools, parents and students. Before the student decides to take the year off, parents and students need to reach an agreement of what is expected in this year so both are clear on expectations. This can be a time of helping in the community, working or traveling, as long as the expectations are clear on when they should apply and how they should prepare for their further education.
