Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Springfield District Curriculum
In English/Language Arts, the Common Core Standards require that students be college/career ready in the literacies necessary for the 21st century world. This means that beginning in early programs and kindergarten students begin the process of learning to read and write and interact with the written word in a variety of contexts. These are the building blocks for fluent reading and writing of texts for a variety of purposes. Students also have to understand and be able to analyze and evaluate what they read.
The Common Core’s standards for Mathematics help prepare students to be college/career ready by laying a foundation in whole numbers, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions, and decimals. As these skills are mastered, students increase their ability to learn and apply more rigorous mathematics concepts and problem solving, to think critically, reason mathematically, interact with and solve problems in real world contexts and scenarios.

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 Avoid Run-on Sentences
What is a run-on sentence? A sentence that has more than one independent clause that is combined incorrectly is called a run-on sentence. To use proper grammar and avoid run-on sentences, fix a run-on sentence by making sure that each independent clause is its own sentence by adding a period, by combining two independent clauses with a semicolon, by making one independent clause dependent, or by combining the two independent clauses with a conjunction such as “and,” “but,” or “or.”
