Educating Our Parents: Understanding the New Castle District Curriculum
College preparation is a focus in Indiana state curriculum, as well. Score reports from the PSAT are used to individualize instruction in critical reading, writing, mathematics, and science. Score increasing test strategies are also explored. College credits may be earned through dual credit courses in the areas of business, language arts, fine arts, mathematics, science, social sciences, and world language.
Advanced Placement classes are also available in the previously mentioned areas, as well as the areas of computer science, history, and government. The Advanced Placement classes follow a curriculum that is aligned to first year college expectations and for which students may be eligible for college credit. Elective classes are also available in many areas, such as agriculture, computer design, accounting, and engineering. Students in career focused courses may also have the chance to gain work learning experience.

New Castle District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
All students are required to take courses in language arts, mathematics, social studies, and science throughout their educational career in New Castle Community Schools. Critical thinking, research, and problem solving skills are all emphasized in the curriculum. Language arts courses focus on writing, reading, speech, and comprehension while mathematics classes look at quantitative and abstract reasoning. Many courses will build on previously learned skills that allow each student to become successful while working at their own pace.

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: How to Study Math
Studying math can require different strategies than those that are used for classes like language arts or science. With math, you need to understand and be able to use the formulas that are taught. It’s important to attend class and take notes, as well as ask questions about topics that you don’t understand. Make sure you write down any formulas that your teacher emphasizes. After class, you should also complete any assigned homework and review your notes. When you’re doing your homework, try to do most of the problems without the textbook. Also, go back and practice any math problems that you consistently get wrong. Reviewing old tests can also help you understand any errors that you may make. Showing all of your work is helpful because you can come back to certain problems later and locate any steps that may confuse you. Remember that math skills are cumulative, so each class you take should provide you with knowledge that you can use in the future.
