Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Atlantic City District Curriculum
The Atlantic City School District curriculum places emphasis on student achievement of the New Jersey Common Core Standards. These standards provide student performance guidelines in all core subjects. Students are also required to meet proficiency in math and language arts, whose standards are set forth in the Common Core Standards.
Students begin to learn about technology in preschool, where they are familiarized with the essential components of computers, such as the keyboard, mouse and power button. In elementary school, this basic knowledge is expanded to include learning how to type, use word processing software and learning how to use the Internet in a safe manner. In middle school, students acquire the skills to create multimedia presentations and professional documents, such as resumes. In high school, students acquire advanced technological skills and graduate knowing how to construct spreadsheets to analyze data, use the Internet for academic research and create a portfolio that includes a resume, cover letter and curriculum vitae.

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.

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: Music in the Classroom
While music in the classroom might sound like a horrible idea to some, it actually has value in helping students learn. Playing music while students are learning, even softly in the background, helps keep students engaged and energized. Music can provide this function throughout the school day, but proves to be especially helpful in the classes immediately following lunch, when full tummies and several hours of school make students extra sleepy. Music can also be used as a teaching tool, with many songs available for teaching about math, language arts, science and social studies topics. Additionally, music opens doors for creative expression and appreciation of the arts. As long as there are careful selection of songs and smart decisions about when to utilize music, it can prove to be a valuable asset for enhancing the learning environment.
