Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Chatham Borough District Curriculum
The district uses targeted instruction to ensure students receive the attention and specialized instruction they need to thrive in their elementary years and which will prepare them for the years ahead. Also, the district has designed a technology activity template, along with a sample version of that template and a sample lesson plan incorporating the technology standards so that teachers and students can get used to the new expectations. The elementary students are expected to gain familiarity with how to use computers and other technology devices, and by middle school, students are learning about word processing and databases.
The curriculum teaches key concepts and investigates them thoroughly so that students understand them well. This gives students a firm foundation on which to build. Critical thinking, critical reading, analytical writing, and problem-solving skills are all taught so that students are well-prepared for life beyond high school. These lessons are also applied to real-world situations, so that students can relate to what they have learned, instead of focusing on abstract concepts which are easily forgotten.

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: Improving Parent-Teacher Communication
Just as we want our children to be prepared for a new school, parents should prepare themselves for teacher conferences. If you want to avoid the “deer in headlights” feeling when you hear unexpected news at a parent-teacher conference, here are a few things you can do to get the most out of your next school meeting. First, talk to your child beforehand to get his perspective on their own progress. This valuable conversation will give you some idea of what to expect and tell you if your child is in tune to his own progress. Secondly, start with the right attitude. Remember your child’s teacher is on your side. Start with a compliment; then address your questions or concerns. This will help start the year off on the right foot. Lastly, follow up. If you and the teacher agree on areas of improvement, maintaining communication and putting goals in place will let your child know that you are working as a team to ensure your child’s success. This will motivate your child and ensure further communication will go even more smoothly.
