Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Gilford District Curriculum
In terms of skills in elementary math for example, students are expected to learn decimals, subtraction, and addition. However the standards only serve as guidelines and teachers, for instance, are not given set method for instructing on each standard which allows teachers to determine the best means to convey information to their students. Instead the Common Core standards can be seen as a set of goals or expectations for a teacher to assist the students in becoming lifelong learners who are capable of critical and analytic thought.
Similarly, the Grade-Level Expectations has a proposed framework that covers key topics such as mathematics, reading, science and writing. These frameworks are based on the rationale that students must be prepared for a constantly changing world in terms of technology, work-related competencies and overall livelihood. The broad goal of the curriculum though is to foster learning as a way to enable students to become positive influences on their society.

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: Getting Ready for College One Step at a Time
Contrary to popular belief, preparing for college isn’t a race to the finish line. Instead, take your time in the process. Schedule your college placement tests such as the SAT and ACT far in advance. The logic behind this is if you do not do as well as expected the first time, there will still be time to test again. Also, it is a good idea to schedule interviews with college alumni far in advance of the application deadline. If you wish for your interview to be included in your admission package, then be sure to schedule your interview months ahead of time so that your interviewer will be able to fit you into his or her schedule. Next, approach your guidance counselors early on to ask for recommendations. Your guidance counselor will be inundated with students asking for similar information; get it done early and you will be able to check off one more step from the grueling application process.
