Educating Our Parents: Understanding the New Castle District Curriculum
From kindergarten to grade 5, the curriculum is designed around the textbook "Investigations in Number, Data, and Space." This book is designed with children of the elementary school level in mind. It focuses on deep understanding of mathematics, rather than a simple and superficial approach. From grades 6-8, the curriculum transfers to "Mathematics in Context," which was funded in part by the National Science Foundation.
The Science curriculum is focused on bringing science back to nature. From kindergarten, students are encouraged to look at the world around them, and then see how this can be studied using the scientific method. The science curriculum includes environmental issues, nature, chemistry, physics, and biology. The methods are integrative, designed to intrigue students while educating them simultaneously.

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.

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: The Value of Good Mathematical Skills
While mathematics may not be every student's forte, it is every child's right to have access to an education which guarantees their ability to maneuver through day to day tasks as an adult without fearing numbers. Being able to perform basic mathematical tasks is as important as the ability to be able to read. When choosing the right school for your child, be sure to examine the school's approach to mathematics, ensuring that there is an integrated approach to teaching arithmetic, which encompasses every learning type. Children may be more inclined to learn mathematics through various formats, such as visual or auditory styles.
