Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Town & Country District Curriculum
Each school district maintains a varied and comprehensive curriculum which is rigorous and competitive. Expectations are clearly defined, and teachers refine their lesson plans to match the needs of students. The curriculum stresses critical thinking skills, which are implemented across disciplines. Analytical writing is also taught in many different classes, so that students have the skills they need to not only develop well-reasoned opinions on a variety of topics, but to support those opinions with facts.
Students read a variety of different types of texts, write about them in a variety of formats, and demonstrate strong and effective communication skills. To help students reach their academic potential, the district works closely with parents, community members, and other stakeholders to ensure the educational experience in the schools is challenging and relevant to today’s needs. The goal is to produce adaptable students who are ready to face the challenges of our ever-growing global community.

Town & Country District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The ditricts focus on maintaining safe campuses with a productive environment in which students feel secure enough to meet the challenges of a rigorous curriculum and succeed. The schools also encourage community involvement and offers many extracurricular opportunities for students. In addition to academic success, students are taught to make healthy choices in their own lives. The hope is that students take responsibility for their own learning and become engaged, driven learners and citizens who will be successful in their own lives beyond graduation.

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: Early Action vs Early Decision
Early Action (EA) and Early Decision (ED) are both early application types, usually due November 15th and November 1st, respectively, but there is one major difference between them: ED applications are binding, which means students commit to attending that college if accepted. This can be a real boon, because it demonstrates a lot of interest in the college. Of course, a college really wants a student who really wants to go there. But it can also be a negative because the student is locked in; what happens if the applicant applies to another college, and gets a better financial aid package? They can try to negotiate, but they are committed, and there’s not much they can do. EA has some of the benefits of ED: it’s early, which does show dedication, but it doesn’t demonstrate as much commitment as ED. Of course, applicants are free to pursue better opportunities, which is certainly a bonus.
