Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Stonington District Curriculum
The Common Core Standards provide a path for in depth understanding of content. In the early years, the focus in English Language Arts is to enable literacy through reading, writing, and speaking. As each student progress, the curriculum helps students evolve their abilities, conceptual understandings, and critical thinking skills. In Mathematics, the number of required topics each year is reduced allowing time for students to gain a deeper understanding in the topics of algebra, geometry, data analysis and mathematic thinking.
Each schools administration is dedicated to ensure these goals are met and are working with teachers to provide professional development opportunities. The use of common assessments is also important in providing the teachers and district with actionable insight into the progress of their students and teaching practices. Through the assessments that measure student’s abilities in specific curricular expectations, teachers are able to instruct students more effectively.

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: The Importance of Reading
Study after study over the past several decades points to the critical importance of parents reading to their young children and lasting benefits over time. Reading shouldn’t stop just because your child learns to read on their own. Read more complex books to your older child or perhaps start a family book club. The bonding it creates and the importance it places on reading and literacy in the classroom can have monumental impact on their education throughout school and the rest of their life. Simple acts of reading together will create higher test scores and self-esteem.
