Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Westwood District Curriculum
Two sets of standards guide curriculum development in the Westwood Regional and Bergen County school districts. The Common Core State Standards outline what students should learn and know in math and language arts classes. The New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards provide similar guidance for seven core subject areas: world languages, technology, visual and performing arts, 21st Century life and careers, health and physical education, science and social studies.
Students at all grade levels take part in the 21st Century life and career curriculum. The media and communication strand gives students insight into the use of media and tools for communication in the modern world. Students identify ways in which technology can be used for communication, and examine the ways in which media can be used in unethical ways. Students analyze the role of digital communications in facilitating cultural, social and political change. Government censorship and regulation is examined, and students identify ways in which these efforts protect citizens from danger when using digital communications devices.

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: Three Tips for Writing a College Essay
Getting into the college of choice is an important milestone for your child. But before they are admitted, they must impress the admissions counselor. A great way to do that is by writing a well-written and interesting college essay. In order to make that happen, your child needs to bear three things in mind. First, they need to be smart, without coming off as a know-it-all. Encourage your child to discuss the subjects and topics they find most interesting and why, rather than focusing on the grades and awards they’ve gotten. Second, your child should insert a little bit of humor into their essay, but not overdo it. Poking fun at themselves is a great way to show some humility and personality. Lastly, your child’s essay should tell a story about who they are. Recommend language that is vivid and conveys emotion. Essays that exhibit these personal touches will leave a good impression upon admissions counselors.
