Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Old Orchard Beach District Curriculum
In Language Arts and Literacy, students learn the basics of letter sounds and recognition, as well as listening skills. Students in kindergarten listen to stories read aloud and answer questions to demonstrate their comprehension. Throughout grade school, students build more and more complex literacy skills. Students read non-fiction and learn how to recognize the functions of different text features and how authors write for varying purposes. They are also able to recognize the point of view and literary devices found within different texts.
In Science, students in elementary school are introduced to various concepts in earth, physical, and biological science and are taught the processes for scientific investigation. They learn how to formulate hypotheses, make and document observations, and communicate their ideas. Scientific and technical literacy are important features of the curriculum and students are expected to be able to read scientific texts and write thorough lab reports.

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 Get Homework Help
If your children are having a problem with completing homework because they do not understand it there are things you can do to help. Most schools have a website where students can go to get help with their homework. Also, many schools are now offering the 21st Century program, which is an afterschool program where students can get homework help from teachers. Oftentimes, one of the challenges which students have with homework is understanding what the assignment asks them to do, so being able to discuss the assignment requirements with the teacher can be a big help. Another alternative is to find a good tutoring program for your child. Most tutors will come to your home or arrange to meet at a local library to help your child. Homework can be fun if you just do your research. Help is out there.
