Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Cumberland District Curriculum
The Common Core Curriculum emphasizes Math and Language Arts as they are fundamental for learning in other areas. Math education is built along the strands of numerical operations, algebra, geometry, data analysis and seeks to bring about overall mathematic literacy and communication skills. In Language Arts, instruction in reading, writing and verbal communication is intricately linked and skills in each are built over the years. Students are expected to develop critical thinking abilities such as analytic thinking and idea generation.
Core subjects are a focus, but world languages and fine arts are also an important facet for middle and high schools students. By seventh grade, students will have studied the language, grammar, and culture of either French or Spanish speaking countries. In high school, there are elective offerings that provide the opportunity to make cross-curricular connections. As a result, students receive a well-rounded education that helps develop an open mind. This will ultimately equip them with the skills they need to be successful in a global economy.

Cumberland District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Cumberland Public School System supports learning and 21st century skills for the students it services. Cumberland Schools are part of Race to The Top, a federal initiative aimed at improving student performance. As a result, the district is shifting its curriculum to reflect Common Core Standards.

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: All Day Kindergarten
According the National Education Association (NEA), children who participate in full day kindergarten classes become more proficiently prepared for elementary school in the areas of math and literacy. Cumberland supports this research and offers full day kindergarten to its students. The kindergarten experience requires real preparation for each child, they will need to know what to expect and have routines in place to establish patterns of success. Becoming a student is new, but natural, territory, and fears should be allayed so that children can anticipate kindergarten with excitement.
