Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Kingston District Curriculum
The math curriculum places emphasis on students gaining mastery of number facts, as them gaining automaticity in their calculations paves the way for them to be able to solve more complex problems. The Common Core Standards call for the students to have mastered the following facts at each grade level: addition and subtraction up to 20 (first and second grade), multiplication facts to 100 (third grade), and multiplication and the related division facts up to 12 x 12 (fourth grade). Students are expected to understand that multiplication and division are "inverse" (opposite) operations.
Elementary students will begin to solve word problems involving two steps. Although mathematical word problems can be challenging in and of themselves, requiring students to perform an additional step makes these problems even more complex to solve. These two-step problems may involve any of the four operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division); although, multiplication and especially division will be more basic at this stage. Students can look for key words in these problems to determine the operations they have to perform.

Kingston District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Sanborn Regional School District follows the expectations laid out in the NH College and Career Ready Standards. These Standards are aligned to Common Core Standards in Math and Language Arts but also cover other academic and elective subjects. Learning goals are detailed so that educators provide students with a coherent scope and sequence to learning that builds as it goes. Topics such as algebra and geometry are revisited each year in greater depth so that the basics developed in elementary school are still being used by students as they develop more advanced skills. College and career readiness are also key objectives so students are given opportunities to conduct independent research, work with groups on projects, and participate in community events.
We currently cover the following Kingston-area school district: Sanborn Regional School District.

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: Community College
When considering education after high school, community colleges should be considered. The cost of a college education continues to rise, year after year. This makes four years at a university out of range for some students and parents. Community colleges can save thousands of dollars per year which can then be applied to university if the child decides to continue after their years at the community college. Plus this time allows the student time to apply for scholarships and grants to help cover the remaining years. While at the community college the student can take the general education classes that meet the needs of universities, plus the class sizes are generally smaller so it is easier to receive assistance, if needed. In a larger university classes may not be taught by the professor but by a teacher’s assistance and the classes are generally larger, making them less personal.
