Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Waterford District Curriculum
Tightly aligned with state and national standards, the Waterford Public School District followed the Connecticut Common Core State Standards Initiative as well as using the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium as its basis for curriculum. Teachers are training using professional development opportunities in Writing Instruction, Literacy Instruction, and recently worked to revise the Science and Art curriculum. Social Studies, Physical Education, and Health curriculum have also been recently revised and renewed to best meet the needs of the students in the Waterford School District.
At the elementary level, students complete coursework in reading, English/Language Arts, mathematics, science, social studies, world language, health, and music. Progressing to the middle and high school level, students are exposed to further areas such as business, American studies, technology education, and family and consumer sciences. Depending on student ability and skills, students have the opportunity to take honors, Advanced Placement and UCONN Early College Experience.

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: Homework TIps
Are you stuck at home with a math problem or science question that you can’t seem to find the answer to? Use the following tips to help solve your dilemma. Complete your homework shortly after-school so that the material and questions are fresh in your memory. Waiting until late into the night can only exacerbate the problem. Ask for help! If your parents are home, then ask them for guidance and see if they can help you tackle that nagging problem. Phone a friend! If you have a friend in class, ask them for clarification, as they just may be your lifelines. If your school or district offers a homework helpline, use it! Don’t be afraid to ask another teacher or adult for help whenever you need it. Email your teacher or have your parent email the teacher and ask for assistance in understanding the problem. If you are still hung up, complete the remainder of the assignment and ask the teacher first thing tomorrow so she/he can help get your on track!
