Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Newport District Curriculum
In Math, the standards cover numeracy, operational sense, algebra, geometry, and data analysis/statistics from elementary through high school. For example, although third grade students in mathematics are expected to learn about the properties of numbers and congruency, teachers are able to choose how they will teach this information to students. Once the basics are instilled, students are prepared to do more advanced work with algebraic equations or geometric theorems.
Teachers can modify their lessons to meet the needs of their students and still teach according to grade level expectations. The Smarter Balanced assessment will be used to test student knowledge of the Common Core State Standards thus far. Although a set reading list is not defined by the Common Core State Standards, students are encouraged to read over the summer and are given reading lists. Students are also given reading resources based on recommendations provided by the Newberry Medal Winners and the American Library Association.

Newport District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Newport School District has implemented curriculum changes to align the Common Core State Standards, which focus on Math and Language Arts, with the current curriculum. These standards do not however dictate how teachers should teach but instead lay out a progression of topic-focused learning. They also do not cover everything that students should be taught. Teachers are free to use strategies and methods that they see fitting to the needs of their students in order to meet the guidelines established by the Common Core State Standards.
We currently cover the following Newport-area school district: SAU 43 Newport School District.

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: Importance of Choosing the Right College
How will you decide which college to attend? While most students are focusing on just getting accepted into college, it will prove beneficial to evaluate what you actually want from your college career. There are many colleges and universities that have a reputation as social schools while others are known for their academic programs or excellent post-college job placement percentages. You first need to determine what is most important to you and what you plan to get out of college. You do not want to plan your college searched based on where your friends are interested in going; that should have little influence on your decisions. The college you do eventually choose should be a college that is a right fit for you: socially, academically and economically. College is four years of your life: If you choose the wrong one, your academic and social life might suffer as a result. If you choose the right one you’re guaranteed to have a rewarding college experience..
