Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Parsippany-Troy Hills District Curriculum
The Parsippany-Troy Hills School District provides its student with a standards-based education that focuses on learning in the primary core content areas: English, science, math, the arts, health and physical education, and social studies. The knowledge that students gain in these core areas is governed, in part, by the state’s Core Curriculum Standards. As students move from elementary school to middle school, and finally to high school, they are expected to meet increasingly rigorous performance standards.
A special area of emphasis is literacy. Students gain the skills needed to learn to read and write effectively, but also how to conduct research and cite evidence appropriately. Students also learn how to differentiate between fact and opinion in written works. As students get older, they are challenged to develop more complex literacy skills. They learn to integrate information from multiple sources into a cohesive argument, determine the voice, tone and main idea of short stories, and evaluate conflicting information to determine the most likely explanation.

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: Why Literacy is So Important
Some people hear the word literacy and think only of the ability to read and write. While this is certainly the core of what literacy is all about, the effects of one’s ability to read and write are often overlooked. Studies show that the better one can read and write the better off they will be financially. Good readers tend to find more satisfaction in their job and make more money than the average American. At the same time, people who cannot read or read at a low grade-level equivalency tend to live at or near the poverty line – they struggle to find and maintain work, and when they do find work it is only in the short-term. Additionally, there is a strong correlation between one’s literacy level and the likelihood of committing criminal acts. So while being literate means having the ability to read a menu or write a letter, at a fundamental level, it is also a ticket to a better life.
