Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Glocester District Curriculum
The curriculum in Language Arts focuses on reading, writing, speaking and listening, media literacy, and research skills. Each of these areas are meant to develop different types of analytic thinking that students will use in all their courses. The reading strand provides for both fiction and non-fiction comprehension skills to be developed and also takes into account the expectations of learning vocabulary and understanding language conventions. The research skills students learn emphasize being able to evaluate the quality of different resources while independently conducing research.
The Science curriculum provides learning objectives in earth science, biology, chemistry, physics, environmental studies, and technology. In the early years, students are introduced to many of the processes of scientific inquiry, including observation and hypotheses testing. In the later years, students begin to conduct experiments and have lab time for which they are expected to document and report on their findings.

Glocester District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Foster-Glocester Regional Schools use Common Core Standards and Department of Education provided Grade Level Expectations to provide the learning objectives for each course. The objectives are meant to state what students should know and learn how to do within each discipline and are meant to build over the years. The goal is that by high school, students will have a depth of knowledge that will allow them to do more complex, analytical work.
We currently cover the following Glocester-area school district: Foster-Glocester Regional Schools.

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: Maximizing Extracurricular Activities
When students are in middle and high school they are able to choose from a number of extracurriculars available. The extracurriculars are a part of the schools offerings that shouldn't be overlooked - many of them are academically competitive or hone future professional skills like the Debate Club or school newspaper. Others give students a chance to become more active in their community, and helps a student stand out for the service they've given. When a student is applying to college, there may likely be a question about what extracuriculars they were involved in - rather than leaving it blank, it's a good idea to get involved with one or two activities that are interesting. Or, if a student has the initiative to start a club, that will look great on a college application.
