Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Virginia District Curriculum
The English language arts curriculum details the decoding and analytic skills students need to be critical readers. Emphasis is placed on vocabulary development and students gaining strategies to understand unfamiliar words. In writing, elementary students begin to learn various ways to write - from explaining something in an expository format to various styles of creative writing. Narrative writing is also emphasized, with students using literary techniques to develop characters and plot to promote a sense of experience for the reader.
Motion is a primary topic of discovery for science students in Virginia. Students learn how to calculate the speed of an object that is traveling in a straight line. Learners also develop the ability to graph the object’s position as a function of both speed and time. The effects of various forces on a moving object are also explored. Students learn that when opposing forces are balanced an object either remains at rest or in constant, straight-line motion. Non-direct forces are examined as well, such as magnetic, gravitational, and electric forces.

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: The Importance of Physical Education
The physical education curriculum helps students understand how to attain an optimal level of health and wellness. Students acquire fine and gross motor movements, such as balance and flexibility, and demonstrate proficiency in utilizing those skills for the purposes of health and fitness. Learners develop activity plans that prepare them for casual physical activities, such as games, as well as for organized sports. Conditioning, weight lifting, and proper nutrition are all aspects of a properly developed plan. Learning how to engage in exercise in a safe manner is also explored. Students learn the value of warming up and cooling down, eating right, and staying hydrated. Students work on devising fitness plans for non-school times as well, including after-school hours, the weekend, and holiday breaks. Learners also develop the ability to self-assess their progress and make corrections such that the progress toward their fitness goals is improved.
