Educating Our Parents: Understanding the North Branford District Curriculum
Elementary students are taught in subject areas that include mathematics, language arts, science, social studies, physical education, music, and art. The district has adopted the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for English language arts and mathematics that adhere to federal guidelines and of which many states have already transitioned. The district recently implemented the CCSS for Literacy in All Subjects. In alignment with the CCSS, school districts have shifted their focus to one of college and career readiness. These subject areas along with world languages carry through middle and high school with advanced coursework being offered for those who meet the requirements.
Curriculum guides are constantly reviewed and updated normally in a four-year cycle. An “Essential Curriculum” for each subject area has been developed by the district, and curriculum remains up to date and guided in student learning. Student achievement is assessed using the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium.

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: Multiple Intelligences Theory: Highlighting Verbal/Linguistic
Howard Gardner’s Multiple Intelligences Theory was brought to light in the 1980s and shifted many viewpoints on the traditional idea of intelligences. Viewing intelligence as a variety of categories rather than one single general ability, Gardner chose 7 intelligences to meet his original criterion and later added 2 more intelligences to his list. Verbal/Linguistic Intelligence deals with the ability to use the spoken or written word. People with high verbal/linguistic intelligence find words, language, and writing to be their strengths. They are good at writing stories and memorizing information. Potential career paths for those verbal/linguistic learners include becoming a writer, lawyer, or teacher as these jobs can often tap into the love of words. Do you sound like a verbal/linguistic learner?
