Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Glastonbury District Curriculum
The core curriculum of Language Arts, Social Studies, Math and Science is taught along major topical strands. Beginning in elementary school, students develop the foundations by which they are able to accomplish advanced studies in high school. In Language Arts, major emphasis is placed on reading strategies that promote the analysis of meaning. Writing is a major component of the curriculum, and students are expected to develop a range of styles.
The Mathematics curriculum calls for a range of operational abilities in numeracy, geometry, measurement, algebraic thinking, and data analysis. Students are expected to develop mathematic literacy by reading charts and graphs, and are expected to communicate their work process in math terms. The goal is for students to learn a variety of problem-solving strategies which will allow them to effectively size up the best way to solve a problem and have the means to draw and extrapolate information from their knowledge base.

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: Getting Kids to Write
It is becoming increasingly difficult for students of the past couple generations to be able to be successful in college and the workforce without having strong writing skills. From writing reports or resumes, the ability to be able to communicate your thoughts and feelings in a logical and understandable way is essential. Writing doesn’t end with book reports in school however; writing should be incorporated in algebra and even physical education and beyond. It has long since been a standard in the advanced or gifted classes, but getting all students to start writing on a wide variety of subjects really gives them a chance to make connections they may have missed otherwise. If they cannot effectively express themselves in words, they will have a very difficult time attaining higher paying jobs or even getting into college.
