Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Smithfield District Curriculum
The goal of the Language Arts curriculum in elementary schools is centered on ensuring that students develop the reading skills necessary to support them through the rest of their educations, and into their lives beyond schooling. They begin learning to read and write in kindergarten, with a focus on individualized instruction to make sure all students' needs are being met.
There are set standards in Oral Language, Concepts of Print, Phonemic Awareness (i.e., understanding of the sounds in words), Phonics and Spelling, Fluency, Vocabulary, Comprehension, and Writing. By second grade, students are expected to have mastered the concept of print and phonemic awareness; from then through fifth grade, the standards are in Oral Language, Spelling, Fluency, Vocabulary, Comprehension, and Writing. When students arrive in middle and high school, these standards have set the stage for them to use their skills in the more difficult work that faces them.

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: How to Increase Your Vocabulary
Having a large vocabulary is important for your education. Not only will it help you on standardized tests like the ACT or SAT, it will also help you read complicated texts and understand them easily. Working on your vocabulary doesn’t have to be a chore. Instead, read widely, and make a point of looking up words you don’t know. Choose reading material which pushes your boundaries, whether it’s fiction or non-fiction. Spend some time learning about Latin and Greek roots, which will help you figure out the meaning of a word you don’t know from its parts. Similarly, practice guessing the meaning of words you encounter from context, so that you can continue to expand your vocabulary whenever you read.
