Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Irvington District Curriculum
The New Jersey Core Curriculum Standards outline benchmarks for student learning in the seven following areas: visual and performing arts, health and physical education, science, social studies, world languages, technology and career, consumer, family and life education. In elementary school, students learn about income and its limits. In middle school students explore various career choices and begin to explore the qualifications required for their preferred career. By the end of high school, students will have developed an understanding of the tax system and how it impacts one’s wages.
In Language Arts, students in elementary school learn the basics of reading and writing, effective communication, and speaking and listening. Once in middle school, students take on the task of identifying central ideas in texts, the meaning of words and phrases and how to present ideas in an effective speech. In high school, students must demonstrate proficiency in conducting research, acquire a more complex vocabulary and learn to evaluate the effectiveness of written arguments.

SchoolTutoring Academy Increased My SAT Score By 200 Points

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: How Social Media Can Be Good for Students
The pitfalls of kids using social media are both numerous and obvious. However, there are also a lot of benefits to kids using social media. First, social media can be used to find inspiration for art, research or class projects. For instance, a social studies student might find inspiration for a research project by viewing tweets from people involved in a protest against a repressive government. Second, social media can connect students at home with students abroad. Kids can learn about other cultures, religions or traditions by communicating with Facebook friends around the globe. Finally, social media can be a creative outlet for students who might not otherwise have an opportunity to put their talents on display. A student who is afraid to audition for the school play might instead make a video for YouTube. While it’s important to monitor kids’ activities online, it’s also important to recognize the profound positive impacts that social media can have on students.
