Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Somers District Curriculum
Beginning in primary and middle schools, students explore a variety of academic content areas such as mathematics, reading, language arts, science, and social studies. In addition, students are exposed to physical education, library/media art, and music to enhance their educational experience. Those subject areas along with world languages, technology, and business education carry through middle and high school with advanced coursework being offered. Students are assessed using the Connecticut Smarter Balanced Assessment in Grade 3-8 and 11. The district supports the career and college readiness initiatives for its students.
The arts component of the curriculum includes studies in visual arts, theater, instrumental music, and vocal music. In these courses, students learn not just the skills required to create or perform art, but also to examine and interpret art produced by others. Students learn how to design, innovate, collaborate, and communicate effectively. These skills are important not just for artistic expression but in life in general.

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: Who Are Kinesthetic Learners?
Learning styles or preferences group common way that people learning. While everyone has a mixture of learning styles, most people have a dominant learning style with the other styles used far less. The three main types of learning styles are visual, auditory, and kinesthetic learners. Kinesthetic learners often are known as “do-ers.” They are tactile learners who need to touch, feel, or experience information in order to fully understand concepts and knowledge. Kinesthetic learners love to manipulate the information. Tactile learners do not like to sit still, love science labs and building models. They are often fidgety and are good at schools due to their physical components. Kinesthetic learners enjoy taking field trips because the information comes alive through discovery. If you are a kinesthetic learner, you may have to make some adaptations from time to time in order to be successful in the traditional school setting. Try making flash cards, creating study games, or creating role-plays in order to help content come alive.
