In English/Language Arts, the Common Core Standards are for students to read and understand many types of reading selections, including literature. Students are expected to acquire knowledge in literature and other disciplines through reading, writing, speaking, and listening. As students learn to read in grades K-3, they are exposed to fiction and non-fiction, poetry, and other types of selections. As students move past third grade and on to middle and high school, reading is also emphasized in other content areas such as Social Studies, Math and Science.

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 to Avoid Sentence Fragments
A sentence fragment is a group of words that does not have a subject and a verb (predicate). It is not an independent clause, so the group of words is an incomplete thought. This usually happens when a sentence lacks a subject or a verb. To make a sentence fragment into a complete sentence, the missing subject or verb must be added or the sentence fragment can be joined to another sentence. Here’s an example: 'Sonya riding.' is a fragment. 'Sonya went riding." would be the corrected non-fragment version.
