Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Ledyard District Curriculum
Beginning in primary and intermediate school, students explore a variety of academic content areas such as mathematics, reading, language arts, science, and social studies. In addition, students are exposed to physical education, library/media, art, health, and music to enhance their educational experience. Those subject areas along with world languages, technology, and business education carry through middle and high school with advanced coursework being offered for those students who meet the requirements. A variety of elective coursework is also offered at the high school level including creative writing, acting, journalism, culinary arts, child development, and many more.
Ledyard also utilizes curriculum maps that include scope and sequence of content and skills, core materials, textbooks, and measurable student learning objectives. These help all members of the educational community understand the goals at each grade level and to see the continuity of learning that students will go through. It also helps to see areas where subjects can be integrated so that students see its relevancy.

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: Tips for Writing Essays
While some students seem born with the gift of writing, others clam up at the thought of having to put their words on paper. Writing an essay can be a daunting task, but effectively stating your argument or point doesn’t have to be such a difficult process. Behind every good writer is a good research. Without having a good deal of knowledge about the topic, writing an essay will be challenging so do your homework in the form of research. Brainstorm before you start! Sometimes it helps to start jotting down thoughts and ideas before you start formally organizing them into cohesion. Pick your best idea and develop your thesis based on a concise statement that sums up where you are going with your writing and why. Next try outline your essay out with some organization and cohesion so you have a good map of your content and ideas. Lastly, sit down and write! Grab the reader’s attention and have them wanting more to read.
