Educating Our Parents: Understanding the South Amboy District Curriculum
The English/Language Arts curriculum in South Amboy is aligned with Common Core Standards and developed to ensure each child can build their own knowledge of a text through content-rich nonfiction, present understand of text with evidential support, and apply knowledge of complex language to the analysis of a text. Curricular units are built with the end in mind, which means that teachers develop lessons that build upon prior learning and genre or theme studies are enveloped within specific, targeted learning goals and applications.
These learning objectives are directly linked to the Common Core standards, and students are consistently encouraged to take ownership for their own acquisition of these skills. The PARCC assessments, which are more closely aligned to the Common Core Standards, will be ready for implementation in the 2014-2015 school year. These will give a clearer picture of how students are doing in achieving the standards.

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: Teaching Your Child to Be a Goal-Setter
Remember the age old age inch by inch, life’s a cinch? Most of us will admit we need to create small goals for ourselves to make larger tasks more manageable and less daunting. Our kids are no different; in fact, they might need to make even smaller goals to discover the joy that comes from feeling successful in reaching your goals. But what can you as a parent do to support this process without overstepping your boundaries? For starters, adjust your expectations. Your child may not know what goals are realistic at first, but resist the urge to do the work for your child. Rather, encourage your child to make goals that are specific and time-oriented. If s/he fails to reach a goal, encourage her to try again. And be sure to join him/her in celebrating her successes as well. The intrinsic motivation your child will gain will be invaluable for the future.
