Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Peterborough District Curriculum
Students are expected to demonstrate effective communication skills. Students write analytical essays. They read a variety of challenging texts across the curriculum for meaning and author intent. They gather evidence from their reading, develop theses, and use the evidence to support their ideas. They also make oral presentations and are expected to be active and thoughtful listeners, as well. Students communicate in a variety of ways and mediums and are expected to become able to communicate effectively through all forms.
Students are also expected to demonstrate effective problem solving skills. In science classes, they learn the scientific method which promotes thoughtful investigation of problems. They begin with a study of the physical world and investigate the world around them, culminating in more complex engineering problems. Students are expected to use the knowledge they have gained effectively.

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: Private vs. Public Colleges
The primary difference between private and public colleges is the way they’re funded. Public institutions are funded by the state, whereas private colleges tend to be funded by tuition. Because of this, each type of institution accepts students in different ways. Public colleges are mandated that they must accept a certain number of in-state residents. They tend to receive a high volume of applicants, and often are short staffed. Therefore, they tend to read applications quickly and have higher acceptance rates. Public universities tend to focus on GPA and standardized test scores to determine admissions eligibility. Private colleges tend to be more holistic in their approach to admissions. They also tend to treat students more like customers and thereby attempt to make them happy by focusing on the student experience.
