Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Greenwich District Curriculum
In the early years, the focus in Language Arts is to provide literacy instruction in reading, writing, and speaking. As each student progress, the curriculum builds upon the previous year and provides the ability to increase vocabulary and critical thinking skills. In Mathematics, the number of required topics each year is reduced allowing time for students to gain a deeper understanding before moving on. The same philosophy applies to Science and Social Studies where critical reading and understanding are essential.
In Language Arts, the focus remains on reading comprehension, critical thinking and both written and verbal communication. In Science, students are encouraged to become critics of the world around them and ask questions while probing into the underpinnings of scientific content. Students are asked to question the world around them and engage in experiments to better understand fundamental concepts. Rigorous and in depth understanding reaches to mathematics as well where students gain a confidence in understanding of math concepts.

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: Uniforms in Public Schools
This controversial topic has been the subject of debate for a very long time. Nearly everyone has a strong opinion one way or another. On one hand critics site freedom of speech and expression as being quintessential adolescent behavior. A teenager can find independence by expressing who they are by what they wear. On the other hand, students in the United States are bullied for what they wear. Whether its theft of expensive designer clothes or teasing for a student’s less than stylish apparel, what you wear can become a source of great conflict for some. Uniforms by that regard would level the playing field and reduce conflict. Each school has to make the decision that is right for them and what works for one school might not work for another. However, uniforms are an option to keep kids focused less on what everyone looks like and more on what they are learning.
