Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Somers Point District Curriculum
Both local districts seek to provide a well-rounded education for all students. To achieve this goal, curricula have been developed that establish learning targets for students in each grade in nine core subject areas. The districts’ curricula are aligned with one another and with the Common Core State Standards and the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards. By providing this alignment to research-based standards, the districts ensure that they provide the best learning opportunities for students to facilitate their academic, social and emotional growth.
The comprehensive math curriculum outlined by the Common Core State Standards includes an in-depth study of algebra. As part of this curriculum, students learn how to interpret expressions and parts of expressions, such as coefficients, terms and factors. Students acquire the ability to factor a quadratic expression to reveal the function it defines. Rewriting rational expressions is also learned. Students use polynomial identities to solve problems, and learn how to create equations as well.

Somers Point District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs

The district has three schools with a combined enrollment of approximately 950 students. Once students reach high school, they switch districts and attend Mainland Regional High School, which is located in Linwood. The Somers Point district works to provide students with the foundational skills they will need to be successful in high school and beyond. By building on these basic skills, the Mainland Regional district further prepares students to be socially, economically and politically active members of society.

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: Encourage More Reading
Children today have very busy schedules between school, homework, family time, jobs and extracurricular activities. It can be difficult for your child to find some downtime to relax, but when they do, they might spend it playing video games or texting their friends. A great way for your child to unwind is to read. Reading has been shown to reduce blood pressure and heart rate. The calming effect of getting lost in a book is also helpful to prepare for bedtime. There are academic benefits as well. Obviously, the more children read, the better they become at it. Children who read a lot also have improved concentration, expanded vocabularies and increased creativity. Encouraging your child to read more will help them relax and will improve their overall performance in school.
