Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Yazoo City District Curriculum
The goal of excellence begins with the Math program in the elementary schools. Students learn different ways to solve equations, whether they are working with whole numbers or decimals. They also learn how to estimate and how to describe input-output function tables, on paper and verbally. When they enter high school, students take the skills they have acquired and apply them to algebraic equations including finding slope and linear functions.
In the Yazoo City School's science curriculum, students begin exploring the world around them from the early years. They begin by studying food chains and ecosystems. In junior high they begin to understand scientific inquiry, including how to use the tools found in a science lab. Then before graduation, they go on to learn about cells and cell division as well as DNA and RNA. The goal is to establish the base of science knowledge by which students are able to adapt a stronger conceptual understanding of 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: How College is Different from High School
The transition from high school to college can be difficult if a student is not prepared. One of the things to keep in mind is that scheduling is dependent on the student making the connection with an advisor, plus the choice of classes can be overwhelming. The student needs to remember that there are requirements that must be met for their major, plus many classes will be offered at different times. When scheduling the classes, make sure that the classes do not overlap and that they are the ones that are needed. When attending classes, the student is treated like an adult. Each student is responsible for their own work and grades. College is a great way to spread the wings, as long as the responsibilities of the student are kept in mind.
