Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Cheshire District Curriculum
In Language Arts, the standards focus on literacy not only in literature but across all subjects and ranging into current events and media studies. It also focuses on writing, listening, and comprehension skills that are applied across the content areas. Writing is a major component of the Language Arts curriculum, and students are expected to write in narrative, persuasive and informational forms. In Mathematics, students begin with basic operational and computational skills that prepare them to understand more advanced topics in algebra, geometry, probability and statistics, or calculus.
In Science, the curriculum guides students through learning by engaging them in hands-on activities which bring scientific concepts to life. Inquiry skills are gained through the science curriculum, and students learn the value of testing assumptions and hypotheses. The sciences as a subject continue to expand from traditional offerings into areas like environmental science, engineering, and technology as well.

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: Challenging the Gifted
So much focus in the media is on catching those that fall behind in class. Many only think about those that struggle in school, who need extra help or tutoring. In the classroom though, it’s not just about the ones that are behind, but also about the ones who excel. In every school in America you can find those students are considered gifted. They catch on to concepts quickly but a problem is, they quickly become bored if not challenged. Gifted students can often become disruptive in class and even have low grades, because continually feeling unchallenged makes these students feel apathetic toward school. Teachers have the challenge of not only catching those that fall behind but pushing those that excel. Assessing these students differently is the key to keeping them motivated while at the same time not overburdening them with excessive amounts of school work, a task that is challenging for even the most seasoned educator.
