Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Caribou District Curriculum
The English Language Arts program gives students a basic foundation in literacy skills by teaching letter recognition and sounds. Students learn to listen to stories and answer questions to demonstrate comprehension. Students also learn to write their letters, able to write their names by the end of Kindergarten. Skills increase with each grade, as more complex skills are learned until, when students reach high school years where they learn more critical thinking and problem solving skills.
Maine's math curriculum works in tandem with the STEM program, which provides students with Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematic skills that are so very important if students are to be able to compete for some of the highest paying jobs available. Starting in Kindergartener, students learn to use numbers and to add and subtract using different objects. Students also learn to recognize shapes and to organize them into groups of like shapes or colors. These are the basic algebra and geometry skills that will be built upon with higher math in high school.

Caribou District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The schools in Caribou strive to design a curriculum that is in alignment with the Common Core Standards of the state of Maine. Maine has created a standards-based program that will prepare its students with the critical needs they will have in college and career choices. There is a great emphasis on literacy, as the skills involved are critical for academic success in all other content areas. These are skills that students will need to use in real life situations and the curriculum emphasizes relevancy as an overarching goal.
We currently cover the following Caribou-area school district: Eastern Aroostook RSU39.

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: How Do I Help My Child Develop Problem Solving Skills?
Problem solving is an important skill that your child will use for their entire life. There are activities you can do to enhance your child's ability to solve problems. When your child is having trouble making a decision or solving a conflict with a sibling you need to make sure that you give him/her time to work out the problem or to make a decision. It is important that you do not immediately rush in to fix things. The need and want to try to solve it on their own, but if you see them getting really frustrated give them some options to think about. Give your child opportunities to do things on their own. When picking clothes for a pre-schooler think about laying two outfits on the bed and let them choose the outfit s/he would like to wear. If your child has done something wrong or made a bad decision, do not immediately discipline him. Sit down and discuss the situation, allowing them to explain to you why s/he made that decision. Help to find a better way that s/he could have handled the situation. Doing this will not only help to develop problems solving skills, it will also help him/her to see that you care about what they do.
