Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Loudon District Curriculum
In the elementary reading program, students receive instruction in both whole groups and stations that focus in on one or two key skills. They read stories and informational texts so that they begin to develop the ability to understand and think critically about different types of texts. By developing the ability to recognize the purpose in an author's writing, they become able to do the same in their own writing and learn to write in a variety of styles. The writing curriculum also emphasizes a process approach to writing whereby students brainstorm, write, edit and revise, and prepare a final presentation of their written work.
Elementary math students are introduced to the Common Core Standards for Math in operations and algebraic thinking. It is critical that students understand the relationship between multiplication and division so that they can more easily solve division problems. Specifically, they need to understand that the two are "inverse," or opposite, operations. If they understand this, they should recognize that if, for example, 7 x 8 = 56, then 56 / 7 must equal 8. They then should also recognize that 7, 8, and 56 make up a fact family.

Loudon District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Merrimack Valley School District follows the learning standards set out in the NH College and Career Ready Standards. These standards have been developed so that the academic fundamentals students learn in elementary school are built upon and that by high school students have enough mastery of the topic to be able to do advanced, college preparatory work. The schools also focus on 21st century learning skills which include the ability to collaborate, work independently, think creatively, and communicate effectively. The goal is for students to be able to adjust to any work or learning environment which they enter after graduation.
We currently cover the following Loudon-area school district: Merrimack Valley School District.

Testimonials and Case Studies from Our Parents
SchoolTutoring Academy 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 very self-conscious about her difficulties with the math section of the SAT. SchoolTutoring Academy’s Academic Directors created an action plan that boosted my daughter’s score and confidence level.
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: A Guide to the Most Commonly Misspelled Words
Spelling is a big part of school but an area many students struggle with. There is a large list of words that students (and many adults) spell incorrectly. Interestingly, the word "misspell" is one of those words, with many people often leaving out one S. The word "embarrass" can be a tricky word; just remember it has double R's and S's! Meanwhile, "harass" only has one R. There are often arguments about the spelling of "argument"; it turns out the E after the U in "argue" is dropped. On the other hand, the letter E is kept in the word "changeable." This is to indicate that the G has a soft sound as opposed to the hard G you hear in "argument." "Believe" may be misspelled as "beleive"; remember that I usually comes before E except after the letter C! In the word "gauge," students may place the A and U in the wrong order. One more: The word "miniature" does include an A even though it is not pronounced.
