Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Plainfield Township District Curriculum
A strong understanding of the basic reading skills and strategies are the emphasis for elementary schools. Students are first taught that letters have sounds, those sounds can be combined to make words, and those words have meaning. The basic parts of a story are then broken down into several pieces and strategies for understanding the plot are taught. Teachers focus on such skills as recognizing an author’s purpose, compare and contrast, making inferences, and summarizing.
Mathematics also play a critical role in the curriculum for elementary students. This foundation is based on a strong theory of numbers that starts early with simple counting and value standards. As students begin to understand the concepts introduced in these early grades, they start to apply the knowledge in meaningful ways. Counting money and objects are an important activity for students in the Kindergarten through 2nd grades while upper elementary students learn about measurement and geometry.

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: Tips for Taking a Standardized Test
Standardized testing has become the norm for school districts across the country to show student progress. These tests are comprehensive and usually take the form of multiple choice questions. While standardized tests can make students quite nervous, here are some test-taking tips to help prepare for the big day. First, come prepared for the test having gotten a good night’s sleep and eaten a protein rich breakfast. Next, use your time wisely by answering the questions you know first and going back to more difficult questions after. Third, use common test-taking strategies such as eliminating answers you know are incorrect in order to decrease your choices and going back into the text to underline the evidence for your answer. Finally, and most importantly, always double check your work to make sure you have answered each question and filled in the test correctly. Whether it’s a state test or a college entrance exam, these tried and true tips can make for a successful test-taking experience.
