Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Salem District Curriculum
In Language Arts, this means that students are not merely taught to read in kindergarten and first grade, but are asked to explain the parts of a story, to express opinions, and to write about what they are reading even in the early grades. As students’ reading skills improve, they are asked to use information from literary and informational texts to support arguments, and to use evidence to substantiate their positions. By high school, students are reading large volumes of informational texts to support learning in all areas.
Mathematics is taught with an emphasis on understanding the concepts behind mathematical principles, rather than rote performance of operations. This means an emphasis on visualization, through charts, drawings, and manipulatives, as well as word problems, where students translate situations into mathematical equations. By sixth grade, students are working with variables, so that when they begin studying algebra and geometry in ninth grade they are very familiar with it.

Salem District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs

The Common Core is a curricular effort designed to make sure that students who graduate from high school will be ready for college or careers. The Common Core is designed to be a cumulative and progressive curriculum, meaning that students build advanced skills on a firm foundation of basic skills learned early in their educational careers.

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: Career Skills In All Classes
Many students take specific classes because they believe they will help them meet their career goals. This is a good plan, because high schools are offering more and more options for professional exploration before graduation. However, the skills learned in core classes, like critical reading, problem solving, and mathematical literacy are also essential for career preparation. Students should aim for a balance of subjects, making sure they build these important core skills while still exploring other professional interests. Remember that most careers require a post-high-school certification or degree; make sure that your courses are preparing you for the entrance requirements for those programs, as well as for the career itself.
