Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Elizabeth District Curriculum
Elizabeth’s Language Arts curriculum incorporates a variety of literature throughout the ages. Students are encouraged to read, not only for information, but in order to expand their understanding of the human condition. Through writing, students are also aided in expressing their ideas, opinions and comprehension. The Math curriculum covers a range of concepts and skills, beyond addition and subtraction. Students learn strategies for problem solving, measurement, dimensions, and continuously build upon prior knowledge.
Students experience Science through a multitude of hands-on activities and inquiry-based labs as well as through informational texts, use of multimedia and discussion. Some of the material covered balance and motion, matter and energy, the human body, food chains and ecosystems, chemical changes, physical changes and chemical reactions. There is also a focus on the process of scientific discovery, the formulation and working through of hypotheses, and understanding the connection between science and society.

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.

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: The Benefits of Reading to Children
Reading is a crucial skill for children to develop in order to ensure successful learning and personal development. Parents can encourage development of this skill by taking time to read aloud to their children. The benefits of reading aloud to children are many. Reading aloud helps children to understand the written word because they hear how text is supposed to sound. Children also tend to model their parents, and being read to can encourage children to read on their own. Reading time also facilitates bonding between parents and children, especially when reading is incorporated into an enjoyable routine. Reading also stimulates the brain and improves concentration, imagination and vocabulary.
