Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Englewood District Curriculum
The Common Core State Standards provide guidance as to the skills and knowledge students should acquire in their math and language arts classes. The New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards govern learning targets in science, social studies, 21st Century life and careers, technology, world languages, visual and performing arts, and health and physical education.
Students at all grade levels are required to demonstrate proficiency in the areas of reading, writing, speaking and listening. In elementary school, students acquire the skills they need to become excellent readers. Students are required to demonstrate understanding of key words and phrases, identify central characters in a story and examine the theme, setting and plot of stories. Students learn to make inferences based upon their reading, cite evidence to support analysis of what a text says and analyze differing points of view of a story’s characters. In high school, students continue to expand on their reading skills by analyzing theme development over the course of a story.

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: The Great Homework Debate
Homework is viewed by many as an important part of education. It teaches self-discipline, time management and other essential life skills. Above all, some argue, it teaches kids how to “suck it up” and complete work that may or may not be interesting or engaging to them – a great preparation for future careers. However, there is a growing movement in the education community to get rid of homework altogether. Members of this movement argue that homework impedes kids’ social time with family and friends, reduces creativity and takes all the joy out of learning. Furthermore, proponents of no homework point out that no study has ever found a correlation between homework and academic achievement. As reforms in education are continually made, homework might be one thing that will soon be a thing of the past.
