Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Portsmouth District Curriculum
The Mathematics standards are divided into eleven categories which are referred to domains. The domains are counting and cardinality, operations and algebraic thinking, number and operations in base ten and fractions, measurement and data, geometry, ratios and proportional relationships, the number system, expressions and equations, statistics and probability, and functions.
The English Language Arts standards encompasses a broad set of foundational standards that apply from kindergarten to grade twelve and a set of standards that applies to grades six to twelve only. The basic standards for all grades consist of anchor standards for reading literature and informational text in a range of difficulty levels, writing, speaking, listening, and language. The more advanced standards for higher grades are focused on literacy in history, social studies, science, and other technical subjects. The Common Core Standards define what students should be able to understand and do at the end of each grade in order to be prepared to enter a college or career.

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: An Enjoyable Walk to School
Do you walk to school? This is a great opportunity to socialize. You can spend this quality time chatting with your parents or guardian if their schedule allows them to accompany you on your walk. You can also walk with a friend or two who will follow the same route to school. If you walk alone, you can still make great use of your time and enjoy your walk. Admire any trees, gardens, and architecture that you pass. Think positively about the school day that you will have or rehearse aloud presentations that you will need to give. You can also listen to music if you have a portable device, though you should always remove the headset to cross the road. You can increase the health benefits of your walk by walking a little more briskly for short bursts of time. By applying these suggestions, you can look forward to a fun and beneficial walk to school.
