Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Burlington District Curriculum
The district is committed to designing instruction around the Common Core curriculum, a nationwide effort to create a set of standards for K-12 Math and Language Arts. Each grade level has a set of standards that students should attain by the end of the school year in order to ready them for college. In particular, students of all levels focus on developing reading skills such as connecting how each sentence contributes to the meaning of a text.
The K-5 Math program curriculum uses the innovative Bridges math program that integrates Common Core Standards for Mathematics in a unique way. Students are challenged to develop deep understandings of fundamental mathematics concepts that will be used as a foundation for higher level tasks. The Bridges program uses tangible objects to teach students math concepts such as addition, multiplication, and fractions. This hands-on approach ensures that students can learn and retain more complex and abstract concepts.

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: Why Join The Team?
School activities are a great for both shy and outgoing students. As school activities usually meet on a regular basis, timid students often feel more comfortable expressing themselves. Outgoing students can develop more meaningful friendships when they are able to work with others in small groups on projects and activities. Social groups that do not normally interact can work on common goals together and learn that everyone has more in common than they might have thought. So when the bell rings, think about staying around a little while to participate in all a school district has to offer both during class and after-school.
