Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Edison District Curriculum
Students on the elementary level receive a balanced literacy approach to learning literacy. Learners benefit from differentiated instruction and a variety of educational experiences such as reading silently and aloud, interactive reading, and reading and writing workshops. All students are assessed on an ongoing basis to ensure they are developing literacy skills. Middle and high school students study ELA through a mix of literary works such as plays, poetry, fiction and non-fiction. Students are encouraged to express themselves in relation to what they read, and to learn to express personal opinion and to relay facts.
The Social Studies curriculum throughout the grades is designed to help students become informed about their surroundings and the world. This is to help create citizens who are able to contribute to society and make good decisions. The use of technology broadens the students’ learning horizons. Literacy is encouraged in tandem with Social Studies to ensure better integration and understanding of the material.

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: Ways to Prepare for the SAT
If your high school student is planning to go to college, they should probably consider taking a college entrance exam such as the SAT. Although it is an important test, preparing for the SAT can go smoothly with some preparation. It is helpful if the student becomes familiar with the format of the test. This will help to ease anxiety and lets the student know what is expected of him or her. There are several good study guides which can be purchased and students can also consider taking the PSAT, which follows a similar format of the SAT and can be a good predictor of SAT scores.
