Educating Our Parents: Understanding the New Haven District Curriculum
An initiative known as "School Change" has been seeking to change the achievement gap found in its inner-city urban schools. Each school will be supported in its own particular needs to best help both their students and teachers. One goal is to attract and keep the best teachers and increase community involvement. They want to make school meaningful for the students to raise test scores and educational attainment.
These efforts are supported by the focus on core academics, literacy, mathematic and scientific knowledge being central to the curricular goals. The emphasis on these subjects is intended to increase the level of analysis and interpretation, problem-solving, and inquiry-guided thinking processes that students have the opportunity to do. This curricular emphasis fully prepares students for college and career pursuits.

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: Communication is Key
While many teachers rely on their students to go home and report their day at school to the parents, diligently show their parents the homework for the evening, and keep an accurate daily agenda to keep track of their assignments and due dates, most never do. It is then the duty of the teacher to maintain weekly contact with the parents to keep them up to date on what is happening in their classroom. It can be as simple as sending out a weekly email to parents informing them of assignments, project dates or testing days. Some teachers go so far as to attach the in-class assignments to that email so that the parents armed before their child even gets home at the end of the day. It dramatically increases the rate at which students bring back their completed homework, cuts down on discipline issues, and makes grades rise in the classroom and on standardized tests. Teachers and parents become allies in making students successful in school.
