Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Rockaway Township District Curriculum
The New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards provide guidance for student learning from pre-kindergarten through the 12th grade. Standards have been developed for science, social studies, health and physical education, 21st Century life and careers, visual and performing arts, technology and world languages. The math and language arts curricula are governed by the Common Core State Standards, which seek to provide standards for those two content areas.
A component of the social studies curricula at both local school districts is an exploration of what it means to be an active citizen in the 21st Century. By the end of grade four, students will be able to plan or participate in civic activities, understand who local government officials are and how to contact them about issues of concern and be able to examine unfair rules or practices and provide possible solutions. After middle school, they will have participated in discussions with students from other nations about differences in perspective, participated in mock trials, and engaged in discussions on issues facing the community.

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: Gameplay Helps Improve Math Skills
It’s no secret that when learning is fun, kids are far more engaged and retain far more information. App developers are taking this knowledge to heart and creating games that help kids develop skills in areas where American students tend to struggle. Math is a subject in which Americans perform particularly poorly. But dozens of great educational apps have emerged to help reverse this trend. Kids as young as five years old can now learn basic algebra by playing a game in which they match mathematical symbols such as parentheses. Other apps require kids to save a man from falling off a cliff by performing mental math exercises, while others reward kids for correct answers with in-app games like Angry Birds. The common thread between these apps is that they engage kids with fun graphics, exciting noises and positive reinforcement. The result is that kids acquire valuable math skills that they can use in math classes at school.
