Educating Our Parents: Understanding the East Rutherford District Curriculum
The elementary curriculum consists of literacy, mathematics, science, social studies, visual arts, physical education, music, and technology. The middle schools offer required core courses, as well as required “encore” courses, designed to give students a variety of opportunities. Each grade level requires different amounts of required and elective encore classes. Sixth grade students have the most required and least elective choices, while eighth grade students have the least required and the most elective choices to develop independence.
All K-5 classrooms make use of the Responsive Classroom approach to learning. This philosophy incorporates morning meetings and a positive approach to discipline into daily instruction. This evidence-based program ensures students are engaged in learning and students are taught to be active and self-disciplined learners. Elective courses include music, world languages, health, technology, art, and more; physical education and health are required all three years.

East Rutherford District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The mission of East Rutherford School District and Henry P. Becton Regional High School is to empower and inspire students to be confident, creative, and self-sufficient learners. Teachers and administrators work together to create “minds on” learning experiences. To achieve that end, The Common Core State Standards for English and Mathematics have replaced the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards in Grades K-12. The academic focus for young learners creates a foundation for future learning.

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: Passive Learning vs. Active Learning in the Information Age
Remember the days when a classroom with one or two computers was a luxury? Now, they’re a necessity. For today’s generation of students, active learning has become the norm, and teachers and parents alike must keep up with the new style of learning to support their needs. Passive learning, or the traditional model, comes from relies on lectures, memorization of information, and note-taking. While these skills are still of some importance, the information age demands something more from our children. That comes from interactive learning. In interactive learning, students use technology as an aid to participate in the conversation, making group exercises and role-play more instrumental. Students are living in a technology-driven environment sharper and analytic reasoning are fundamental to their future success. A child who can create logical and creative solutions to modern-day problems are key. Also, learning to collaborate and work successfully in groups will prove indispensable to their success in the 21st Century.
