Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lower Township District Curriculum
Both the Lower Township School District and the Lower Cape May Regional School District develop curricula according to the guidelines of the Common Core State Standards and the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards. The former governs what should be taught at each grade level in math and language arts. The latter outlines benchmarks for student learning in seven other core subject areas.
The world languages curriculum ensures that students acquire an understanding of other peoples and cultures through the study of language. Both French and Spanish are currently offered to students in grades 7-12. Students begin by learning the basics of the language such as words, names, numbers and days of the week. As they advance in their studies, students acquire the ability to speak and read basic sentences, as well as identify parts of speech, such as nouns, adverbs and conjunctives. Students also gain an insight into the perspective of others, through a comparison of the differences in language and culture.

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: Selecting a Teacher to Write a Recommendation
If your child is applying to college, they should have already selected several teachers to write them recommendations. But sometimes kids choose teacher recommendations based on the grade they earned in a class, rather than focusing on teachers who know them the best. What your child should to instead is select teachers that really know them – both as a student and as a person. While class grades matter, it is more important for the teacher to be able to speak about your child’s abilities, which may not always be reflected in the class grade. Similarly, your child’s best qualities might have been brought out in the class in which he or she got a B, rather than the class in which they got an A+. Your child’s grades will be on their transcript, so the teacher recommendations should really focus on what makes your child a great learner, how they have been innovative and imaginative, and the positive contributions they have made to the school environment.
