Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Westport District Curriculum
With the more rigorous Common Core curriculum, there have been several major shifts in the way math is taught. There are deep focus areas; in the primary grades, it is on whole numbers (including adding and subtracting them and understanding the quantities they measure), while grades 3-5 focus on multiplication, division, and fractions. There is also more coherence, with concepts being taught horizontally across grade level as well as vertically from each grade to the next. In grades 2-4, mathematical fluency, including accuracy and automaticity, is important.
By the end of second grade, students should have memorized the sums of all two, one-digit numbers. Third graders need to be able to fluently add and subtract all numbers within 1,000 using appropriate strategies and properties as well as have committed to memory all the products of two, one-digit numbers (basic multiplication facts). Students must also understand when to apply certain mathematical concepts and strategies.

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: Halloween Ideas for the Classroom
Holidays can be educational, too! A great way to help students enjoy poetry is to incorporate a Halloween theme. For example, they can create an acrostic poem out of any Halloween-related word they choose, with each word or phrase stemming off the letters also having to do with the spooky holiday. In math, teachers can incorporate candy corn, pumpkins, bats, etc. into word problems or bring items in so that young students can count and work with them. In social studies, students can learn about the history of Halloween, how the holiday is celebrated in different countries, and the origins of the pumpkin. In fact, entire educational themes can be built around pumpkins, and perhaps the class can celebrate with foods or treats containing pumpkin. In science, students can "dissect" pumpkins. Another idea is for students to have debates on topics such as believing black cats are really unlucky, or whether or not they believe in ghosts. These debates can be turned into persuasive written pieces.
