Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Fairfield District Curriculum
In English Language Arts there is a strong focus on literacy in the areas of reading, writing and speaking. The standards seek to allow the students many opportunities for in depth understanding and critical thinking. In Science, the focus remains on creative and innovative thinking. The students probe to deepen their understanding and apply their lessons to real world applications. In Mathematics as well, the curriculum teaches fewer topics so that the students have time to gain a real understanding of the content before building upon it.
The hallmark of Fairfield’s philosophy on education combines student motivation and engagement in the classroom as well as teacher intervention coupled with acceleration. Teachers collaborate to determine the best possible teaching strategies that will challenge and engage the students. There are high expectations for the students stay motivated while being increasingly challenged. The district also offers a wide variety of courses aside from the core courses, such as business, technology and art, as well as programs geared for gifted learners.

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: Tips for Remembering
Learning how to study is one of the biggest obstacles faced by students from all ages but most importantly in high school and college when the amount of material for exams grows intensely. The absolute best thing to do is to try to understand the material or vocabulary word instead of just trying rogue memorization. If it’s a matter of just memorizing though, trying to form an association with something you already know can be helpful. Repetition and graphic organizers can also help you remember large amounts of information and of course trying to make something fun is key.
