Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Winston District Curriculum
The Language Arts curriculum has a number of goals in developing the literacy, communication, critical thinking, and independence seeking of knowledge which are outcomes of the curriculum. These skills are developed by integrated content and assignments so that students read and write, or read and discuss, and join texts to the activities they are assigned. Classroom reading consists of a wide number of genre, with an increasing emphasis on non-fiction and students are also expected to complete and document their independent reading each year.
By high school, students explore the theme of beliefs and values through a variety of ELA activities. They will read novels such as 'To Kill A Mockingbird', and contextual content related to it. Students research the similarities between the texts and also learn expository, or informational, writing. They read and write on the themes such as risk, choice and consequence. They also read and write expository content on cultural experiences and learn to write simple research projects.

Winston District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The curriculum in the local schools is based on state and national standards that are intended to prepare students thoroughly for their post-graduation life. Core academics, with an emphasis on Language Arts and Math, are emphasized during the early years, and then students receive a wider array of course options as they specialize their interests and consider their career pursuits. The schools also rely on their extracurricular activities to connect students with community service, the chance to participate in leadership conferences, or to be involved in academic competitions.
We currently cover the following Winston-area school district: Winston-Dillard School District.

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: The Differing Roles of Assessments
One of most common criticisms of American education is the amount of testing that students and teachers face. While this may be true, it is important to understand the different types of assessments that are used and what their purposes are. When a teacher does a comprehensive test or reading inventory early on in the year, they are not testing achievement but rather gathering information to use as a benchmark for a students progress. Throughout the year, as students have end of unit tests, those measure achievement and ensure students are ready for the next round of learning. When students work on projects, independently or in a group, those are what is referred to as authentic assessments and are used as a teaching tool as well as a measure of success in learning a topic. Statewide assessments in core subjects are tied to federal funds and used to establish that all students in a school are achieving adequate yearly progress and that the school is succeeding in educating all children. With this in mind, some of the stress associated with testing may be eased.
