Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Essex District Curriculum
The high school English language arts curriculum in Essex includes instruction in how to become an effective writer. Students learn about various types of texts, including informational, expository, and narrative, and learn the differences in the way each is constructed. Learners acquire the ability to link various ideas together such that there is continuity throughout their writing. Students work with various types of source material, and learn how to glean information from them and put that information into their own ideas and words.
The elementary school physical education curriculum revolves around developing the fine and gross motor skills needed to participate safely and effectively in physical activities. Students work with skill themes, learning how to maintain balance, throw and catch a ball, kick a ball, and take part in basic tumbling exercises. Children learn about the value of exercise as well. The positive impacts on the cardiovascular, respiratory, and musculoskeletal systems is examined.

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
For as long as there has been school, kids have complained about homework. But for some of today’s students, homework is a thing of the past. Districts in various parts of the nation are moving to a homework-free model in the hopes that it will help kids enjoy learning more. The logic behind no homework policies is that homework serves to impede kids’ social and home lives. Rather than viewing it as an opportunity to learn something, many kids view it as an undue punishment. Additionally, because doing homework can cause disagreements between kids and their parents, eliminating homework helps reduce that stress and conflict. Some schools that have banned homework have seen an improvement in students’ attitudes in learning. Others have seen an increase in kids taking the things they enjoy learning about home with them to study on their own or share with their families. Supporters of the no homework policy maintain that giving kids more autonomy will serve them well as they go to college or enter the workforce.
