Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Newport District Curriculum
As an example, the fifth grade standards for Language Arts lists three key ideas and details. The main ideas are drawing inferences, determining theme, and comparing and contrasting details such as characters or settings of the text. Under the second heading, students receive three goals: they should be able to discern the meaning of words and phrases in a text even if it is written in figurative language. Secondly, students should be able to explain how the features of the text integrate to form the overall structure. Finally, students should be able to relate how the point of view of the narrator is reflected in the description of events.
In the Mathematics curriculum, the district has incorporated technology to improve the outcomes of mathematics instruction and to provide engaging practice for students. Many of the tools used are web-based as research suggests that virtual manipulatives can be as effective as physical ones in the development of math concepts. The tools are accessible on the district website.

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: Taking the Initiative
Do you feel that none of the clubs at school really speak to your interests? Do you have a unique hobby or talent? Take the initiative and develop a club to involve others in your passion. The first step is to speak to your teachers and administrators. The administrators will have to approve your plan and each club needs a staff member to sponsor the club and coordinate the meetings. Next, talk to some of your classmates and friends to gauge their level of interest. Some schools require a minimum number of members for each club. You can also arrange to have a trial meeting or a demonstration during lunch periods to generate enthusiasm. Even if you do not have enough interested parties to begin a new club, you may find a new friend or two who is interested in your same pastime. Perhaps your hobby is not as unique as you think!
