Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Salem District Curriculum
The social studies curriculum introduces students to concepts in civics, governance, economics, geography and sociology. In economics, children investigate various economic issues that impact them as a consumer, as well as problems the nation’s economy has overcome in recent years. Students acquire a historical and social understanding of the stock market, banking, and economic forces. Students learn about the importance of saving their wages, including various ways they can improve their financial wellbeing.
Students in Salem participate in a technology curriculum that seeks to prepare students for the technology-driven world in which we live. Technology strands are incorporated into other academic areas to facilitate multiple uses of technology and technology understanding. Children learn about the development and nature of technology, including how computers and the Internet have evolved over time. Students learn how technology is an integral component of communication, and how it facilitates interaction between peoples within and between societies.

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: Test Prep Tips for the ACT
For many students, achieving a certain ACT score could mean the difference between gaining entrance to their college of choice or getting the financial aid they need to attend college. With so much pressure, it’s easy to make simple mistakes that negatively impact one’s score. If your child is scheduled to take the ACT, offer them these simple tips for success. First, remind them to read the directions and each question very carefully. Oftentimes mistakes are made because students don’t take the time to read them thoroughly. Second, explain to your child that they need to answer the easiest questions first. This not only builds up their confidence, but also ensures they have the fewest number of unanswered questions as time runs out. Lastly, your child needs to answer every single question. Scores on the multiple-choice sections of the test are based on the number of correct answers, so there is no penalty for answering incorrectly.
