Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Newberry District Curriculum
The Montessori program, available in several elementary schools for students in pre-kindergarten through fifth grade, is based on creating hands on practice of real world experiences. Students use common tools to incorporate math, reading, problem solving, time-management, and creative skills into real life situations. The curriculum requires them to be actively engaged in the learning process through the entire day in project-oriented, hands-on experiences.
The math standards still cover the same skills as in the past, but the focus from year to year has been changed. Students practice fewer standards in a given year, but to a greater depth and mastery so that less review must be completed in future classes. English language arts classes provide students with skills to read and synthesize a variety of texts, including both non-fiction and literature. Student learn to translate their reading and writing practice to all content areas, such as science and social studies, as well as to the real world.

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.
My daughter was very self-conscious about her difficulties with the math section of the SAT. SchoolTutoring Academy’s Academic Directors created an action plan that boosted my daughter’s score and confidence level.
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: Homework Time
Getting a child to complete his or her homework can be difficult for many families. Here are a few ideas to make this time easier. First, complete homework at the same time each day. The earlier in the afternoon the better, as your child will be less tired. Have a designated work area that should always be used for homework. Beds and couches are not good areas for this. If possible use a room without a television, if not possible, keep the television off during homework time. Help your child make a plan before starting his or her work by prioritizing work that can be completed quickly first and doing things that will take longer last. Allow short breaks, but only after productive work time. Breaks shouldn’t include television/video game time as this causes important parts of the brain to slow down. Let your child make some choices about when, where, and what to do first so he or she feels in control. However, remember you are the parent and have ultimate decision making power to veto their decisions.
