Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Newark District Curriculum
Students are taught to think mathematically and to master mathematical operations, fractions, and decimals while applying these skills in solving problems and reasoning abstractly. Mathematics learning is more analytical and hands-on to help students understand the reasoning behind the process and the answers they obtain while working through problem-based scenarios. The Common Core focuses more on real-world applications and having students understand that the math they are learning is relevant to them now and in the future.
Reading is at the core of the English/Language Arts curriculum. Students read and interact with a wide variety of selections. This curriculum includes all genres and more in the non-fiction area than ever before and analyzing more critically. Writing is also a central component of the curriculum and students are expected to learn techniques to write opinion pieces, analytic essays as well as other formats.

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 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: Finding the Area of a Rectangle
In order to find the area of a rectangle, you multiply the length of the base times the length of the height. The area of a rectangle can be found by multiplying the base times the height. If a rectangle has a base 6 inches long and a height of 4 inches, its area is 6*4=24 square inches. If a rectangle has a base 10 inches long and a height of 2 inches, its area is 10*2=20 square inches.
