Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Rocky Hill District Curriculum
The Language Arts framework incorporates reading, writing, listening and speaking, research, and media viewing. These skills are taught in an integrated fashion so that students are continually applying what they learn to different facets of literacy. Grammar and punctuation are also part of the writing curriculum where students will learn the rules of the English language. As students progress into middle school and high school, their writing gets more in-depth and more technical.
The process oriented nature of scientific discovery and hands-on exploration of concepts is also emphasized. Students use the scientific method to investigate different strands of science including plants, space, and electricity. They learn how to formulate and test hypotheses, design their own experiments safely, and learn how to communicate their scientific findings. Technology is also a part of the framework and used as a primary example of how scientific innovation creates changes within our society.

Rocky Hill District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Rocky Hill Public Schools provide students with a thorough educational experience that is based on a standards-based curriculum. Common Core Standards are used in Math and Language Arts, and frameworks for all other subjects have been developed by the state Department of Education. The standards represent the specific skills, knowledge, and critical thinking abilities that students should develop each year, in each subject. The standards are aligned to statewide tests and are used to ensure that each student reaches proficiency in all core subjects.
We currently cover the following Rocky Hill-area school district: Rocky Hill Public Schools.

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: At Home Learning
Learning at home should not be the same as learning at school. When students are at school, their day is decided for them - their courses, the subjects, most of the assignments, and although helping students develop independence in their learning is a feature of the experience. When students are at home, the learning opportunities should be purposeful, and also enjoyable. Some children may need help with math; finding online math games or drill-type software can be useful. Older students, might find topics in graphic design that brings geometry into the learning to also be useful. However, learning at home should also give children a chance to extend their knowledge. Taking virtual tours of museums can open windows that students never even knew existed and increase their artistic and cultural awareness. Dovetailing at home learning with budding or potential interests is extremely effective in helping young people develop the type of independence needed for lifelong learning.
