Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Ridgefield District Curriculum
The Common Core Standards not only increase the rigor of content and but their main focus is to provide consistent and clear expectations across all grades, in all states. In Math, for example, basic concepts are delved deeper so that students can bridge the gap in understanding. This creates students who are life time learners and can excel at math and science and teaches them to think like a mathematician and not just as a passive student.
In English and Language Arts, children begin in kindergarten learning the skills to be able to read at an early age. The best teaching practices are incorporated in order to achieve this. Students are not simply taught how to read either, they are taught how to understand what they read. Speaking and writing skills are also built so that students can not only read at an advanced level but can critically analyze what they have read. These communication skills are important for success at the college level as well as in the future workforce.

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: Redshirting Your Kindergartener?
It’s a dilemma facing a lot of parents over the past decade of when exactly to start your child in kindergarten. In the past, kindergarten was little more than pre-school. Now however, it is a legitimate academic year in which some parents feel that their little one is not quite ready for. More boys than girls are being delayed a year before beginning typically because they were born late in the year and the parent fears the trauma of being the very youngest of their peers. So should you delay? It’s not an easy question to answer and many experts are still not convinced either way yet. If you child has developmental delays, it might be a good idea to give them an additional year of pre-school before sending them off, otherwise it is perfectly possible that your summer baby will flourish in kindergarten with the other five-year olds.
