Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Springfield District Curriculum
The Springfield Public School system anchors its grade-specific standards in a rigorous curriculum, with the forward-thinking goal of graduating literate and well-rounded students who will succeed in their college and workplace endeavors. In Language Arts, reading and writing are key components of early grade strands. Critical thinking and interdisciplinary application of text analysis are then built and expanded upon.
Mathematics curricula take math out of the classroom and into everyday situations. Regular practice with creative ways to employ math skills makes the mathematical subjects lively and engaging, while impressing upon students the importance of applying math. Grade school curriculum emphasizes whole numbers and spatial relationships, while middle and high school curricula diversify into geometry, algebra, calculus and statistics. Mathematical models of true-to-life scenarios bring quality hands-on experiences to district students, teaching students to apply math—and enjoy its applications.

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: Paleontology and Archaeology – Academic Cousins
Paleontology and archaeology are two subjects that are often mistaken for one another. Both subjects are sciences, both study ancient things, and both end up making those who study them get covered in dirt in some way, shape or form.
However, paleontology and archaeology are fundamentally different. Paleontology is the study of ancient life—from insects, to fish, to dinosaurs and woolly mammoths. Sometimes, human remains can be studied by paleontologists—or specialists called paleoanthropologists. Generally, ancient humans and their cultures are studied by archaeologists. The distinction can create situations when both work together—for example, at a mammoth dig site where human and mammoth remains are both found. Both types of dirt-diggers can write reports together and collaborate to tell these ancient stories. The tools they use also differ; paleontologists will dig through tougher sandstone rock, whereas archaeologists brush through soils or softer material, although there is overlap here as well. The next time you are asked just what these scientists study, you will have a concise answer—and perhaps clear up some confusion!
