Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Burlington District Curriculum
For the Common Core State Standards English/Language Arts (ELA) standards, reading, writing, speaking, and listening are the focus with informational texts being introduced as grade progress. In-depth questioning and evidence-based citations are the expectation. Students in the middle grades acquire more advanced skills, including the ability to evaluate the arguments presented by an author in a persuasive piece of writing. Students are expected to writing argumentatively, explanatory, and narratively and research skills are promoted.
For K-8 Math, the standards focus on deep understanding and fluency. Solutions, problem solving, and real world situations are presented. For grades 9-12, students use statistics and real world situations to solve problems and fully understand problems and concepts. Student learning is driven by standards-based instruction that is developed based upon student testing data and the latest educational research. The district also engages in opportunities to promote acceptance, respect, and multiculturalism in order to prepare students for life in a highly diverse 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.
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: AP Exams at a Glance
The culmination of taking an AP class is taking the final step of the AP Exam. There are 36 different exams each unique with different requirements, but there are some commonalities among them. Most exams are two to three hours long with a limited break. The first part of the exam is normally the multiple-choice questions with each consisting of four or five answer choices to choose from. You only received credit for those multiple choice questions answered correctly so there is no penalty for answering incorrectly. The second part of the exam is the free-response questions that require the test-taker to create their own responses. It is exam-dependent and may be an essay, solution to a problem, or spoken response. Some AP exams are actually CD based and taken on the computer and AP Studio Art requires students to submit portfolios of their work. Scoring on the exam ranges from 1 to 5 with 1 being the lowest and 5 being the highest. Registration for AP exams is required so make sure you stay informed of important dates.
