Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Bridgeport District Curriculum
For mathematics, the concept of CCSS promotes the importance of well-developed number sense and problem solving skills. In place of rote and drill practice, students learn how to analyze numbers and apply a variety of strategies to help them build a strong understanding of mathematics and ultimately, connect it back to their daily lives. Upon completion of High School, the expectation is that students will have developed critical thinking skills that can be applied to their everyday lives. From K-12, the focus is on problem solving, strategy development, number sense and technology.
The curriculum for Science is founded on the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). The focus is cross-curricular; meaning that instruction incorporates the content areas of Science, Technology, Mathematics and Engineering (STEM). Curriculum continues to be centered on the main concepts of Life, Physical, Earth and Nature of Science in Elementary. In Middle and High School, it focuses significantly on the relationship between Science, Technology and the world.

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: The Importance of Reading Strategies
As students move through school, they are introduced to a variety of complex texts. The ability to read the content and derive meaning while sifting through extraneous information is a critical skill that often goes undeveloped today. When students' progress to Middle and High School, the expectations are greater. Fostering effective reading comprehension in Elementary school provides the foundation for success in later years. Teaching young students how to compare and contrast, identify main idea and details and examine text elements are important and necessary skills that will enable them to navigate the more complex, nonfiction passages found in content areas like Science, Math and Social Studies/Civics.
