Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Portsmouth District Curriculum
Each year students are expected to master a range of skills that will enable their progression within the subject. For instance, in English, the teaching of writing is encompassed over the years from teaching a student to write their first words to teaching a student to write a research paper. Each subject offers students the chance for in-depth mastery of the content and opportunities for advanced studies in areas of particular interest.
In writing, students should be able to generate ideas, create an outline, research the topic, and write with correct grammar and in different forms. Compositions should be well researched, grammatically correct, and demonstrate use of advanced vocabulary. Upper level students are expected to take a journalistic approach in which topics such as editing, interviewing, and style are used to reinforce literary concepts while learning how texts are created and function.
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: Basics for Developing Academic Achievement
A child needs around 8-10 hours of sleep a night, depending on their age. Too little sleep or poor sleep can interfere with academic achievement whereas good sleep can help increase focus, concentration, and positive moods. If your child is tired throughout the day or struggles in classes, make sure they are getting a good night's rest. If they snore loudly, have large tonsils, or have trouble falling or staying asleep, you may want to speak with a healthcare professional about whether there is an underlying cause and treatment that could help.
