Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Riverdale District Curriculum
CCGPS is heavily found in Mathematics and English Language Arts. The literacy standards are also integrated in Science, Social Studies and Technical Education (at the high school level). Mathematics learning moves from the foundational concepts of computation, measurement and spatial recognition during the elementary grades. Problem solving, reasoning and application skills are introduced in these grades then developed even more during the middle and high school grades.
English Language Arts learning includes reading, speaking, listening and use of language across all grades. Informational themes and short narratives are used as literary texts and within writing development through the elementary grades, giving students time and opportunities to demonstrate comprehension and language development. Middle school and high school students emphasize comprehension and analysis of texts and identification of story elements in progressively complex literature.

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: Becoming a Better Speller
It tends to be all memorization. Some students do well with that type of learning, other students struggle. The elementary and early middle grades spend time on vocabulary; more time in the early grades is spent on spelling. Not only does spelling correctly mean “sounding out the word” but also writing it on paper correctly AND writing the letter correctly so the word can be read clearly. This is a lot for students to process early in their learning. As students progress through grades, the process becomes more automatic however “sounding out the word” and putting that same sound on paper can be a challenge. It just involves practice and more practice. Then memorization of spelling words. Again, practice and more practice. Although memorizing spelling words can be daunting to children, parents can help to make it fun. Create a song, dance, or rhythmic action that builds the letters together in a way your child can remember it. By doing so, spelling, spelling words and memorization overall won’t be so dreadful to your student.
