Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Northdale District Curriculum
Students are also required to take science courses in many areas, including physical, earth and space, and life sciences. Observation, interpretation, and analyzing skills are acquired in these courses through methods that include measurement, research, and problem solving. Students learn about the biosphere as well. An investigation of various processes such as photosynthesis, interspecific and intraspecific competition, and the dynamics of disturbance and recovery is undertaken. Students also explore how matter and energy move through the biosphere, including the nitrogen, carbon, and hydrologic cycles. Technology and engineering also assist students during the learning process.
In social studies courses, students focus on geography, history, government, economics, and many other themes. In kindergarten, students will learn about their community and how they relate to it. Beginning in middle school there will be a greater focus on American history and government. In high school, students will continue to study these subjects, as well as sociology, politics, economics, anthropology, and geography.

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: How to Achieve a Great Score on the Writing Portion of the SAT/ACT
The writing portion of the SAT or ACT can be difficult to ace. When studying with practice questions, it is very helpful to look at the provided explanations on how to write an effective essay. Knowing why a writing tactic is effective will help you gain the ability to actually apply it on test day. When faced with a writing prompt, make sure to read it in its entirety. This will ensure that you don’t skip over any important details. If you are asked to write an essay on your own viewpoint, be sure that you can support your argument with a few well-developed reasons or examples that stick to the topic. Some questions on the writing portion may also ask you to identify errors or improve sentences, which means having a thorough knowledge of grammar. When asked to identify errors in questions, first read the sentence quickly and ask yourself whether it needs to be revised or not. Are the underlined words necessary? A strategy that works for questions that ask you to improve sentences or paragraphs is to predict how to fix an error before looking at the answer choices.
