Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Norwalk District Curriculum
In English, the standards focus on literacy not only in literature but across all subjects and even current events. It also focuses on writing, listening, and comprehension skills that payoff for students both in the workforce and in college. In Mathematics, fewer topics are covered to provide a more in depth and deeper understanding of the subject material. In Science, the goals are to increase the literacy to allow students at all levels to be able to read and analyze material and form intelligent conclusions. The district has set in place various professional development opportunities for the teachers to share best practices for teaching the standards, create common assessments, and integrate technology into the classroom.

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: Choosing the Right College
There are a lot of factors to take into consideration when students and parents sit down to decide which college or university is right for them. The first thing is what type of learning environment is desired? Do they thrive in a small, intimate setting with small class sizes and more one on one attention from professors? Then they may want to choose smaller, private or religious colleges. These schools may offer fewer extra-curricular activities though, and may cost more. Will they succeed better at a larger, state school with large class sizes but also a rich, diverse student body that offers a wide variety of opportunities? These schools tend to be a little more cost efficient assuming you attend a school within the state they reside. Either way college can be a wonderful eye-opening experience.
