Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Litchfield District Curriculum
Middle school science students in Litchfield participate in a curriculum that introduces them to concepts related to energy. Learners study waves and their properties, including wavelength, amplitude, speed, and frequency. The transfer of energy through sound waves is also explored, with students identifying how vibration of particles in the air facilitates that process. Light is also studied. Students examine the color spectrum, as well as the concepts of reflection and refraction. There is a distinction drawn between kinetic and potential energy, with learners identifying situations in which kinetic energy becomes potential energy.
Litchfield’s high school social studies curriculum includes an examination of the impact of European colonization of the North American continent. Learners explore the early relationships between colonists and Native peoples, and identify the manners in which those interactions positively and negatively impacted each group. Students compare and contrast the ways in which Europeans and Native Americans lived, including their differing views on land and the notion of property ownership. The development of regional economies is also analyzed, with students noting the differences in the economies established in the colonies.

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 Physical Education
The physical education curriculum teaches elementary school learners about the necessity of staying physically fit. Learners participate in various activities that promote the acquisition of fine and gross motor skills. Students play games that require manipulation of objects, which gives them practice in developing strength and coordination in their hands and feet. The development of gross motor skills occurs in the context of game play as well, with students learning various movements that allow them to maintain balance and move with fluidity. There is also an emphasis on developing hand-eye coordination. Students play games like tag and kickball in order to develop the body awareness required when running, jumping, kicking, and the like. The social aspect of physical fitness is explored as well. Students learn about teamwork and cooperation, and also dealing with adversity.
