Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Holbrook District Curriculum
When students attain the ELA standards set for them, they will have developed necessary skills in reading, writing and listening. These skills are the underpinning for a student’s ability to communicate with skills that are creative and that have purpose. Besides teaching the basics of learning the alphabet and recognizing and writing letters, students learn to write in different forms, such as narratives or book reports. They learn to communicate through writing and speaking, transferring things they have read and heard into their own words.
The mathematics program, in order to ensure an in-depth knowledge of mathematics, students continue to go over concepts they have already learned, organizing the concepts of place value and the operations of place value and structure. The goal of the mathematics program is to prepare students to compete for a career in the increasingly global world which they will be entering when they finish high school.

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: The Importance of Body Language in Communication
Something that people may not have considered in communication is the importance of noticing the body language of the person or people with whom you are talking. Body language will tell you a lot about how what you are saying is affecting your audience. Watch facial expressions and other mannerisms. Are some crossing their arms? That could mean they are not real happy with what they are hearing. Do they look relaxed or tense? Do some look confused? If you are seeing looks of confusion you might want to stop and allow some question and answer time. Take your cues from your audience and you will see different results.
