Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Worthington District Curriculum
The physical science curriculum in Worthington introduces students to various concepts related to matter and energy. Learners develop the ability to distinguish between a solid, liquid, and gas. The role of heating and cooling in changing the state of matter is explored as well. The transfer of heat energy between hot and cold objects is examined, as are the various methods of producing heat energy. Students create a simple circuit using wires, batteries, and light bulbs in order to better understand electrical energy.
Worthington’s health sciences curriculum seeks to help students develop a deeper understanding of health-related topics. Students discuss how their friends, family, and other social groups can influence their health decision-making processes. Learners identify the healthy and unhealthy influences in their lives, noting how they can resist unhealthy influences by being assertive. Dietary information is also included in the curriculum, with students gaining an appreciation for the types and amounts of foods they should intake each day.

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: Grading for Learning
Some public school systems have moved away from traditional grading systems in favor of systems that grade for learning. Grading for learning is simple: students are graded on their performance on predetermined standards. This type of system is a reaction against traditional systems that tend to assign grades to life skills, rather than content knowledge. For example, in a traditional grading system, students might be penalized for handing an assignment in late. While children should learn to hand in their work on time, penalizing them for not doing so doesn’t reflect that child’s knowledge of the content. Grading for learning systems seek to rectify that situation by focusing the grades a student earns on their mastery of the actual content in the course.
