Educating Our Parents: Understanding the West Haven District Curriculum
In mathematics, fewer topics are covered to allow greater understanding by students and limit the remediation needed by students when they move into higher education. It also allows teachers to be able to take their time in teaching the standards until they were truly mastered by the students and that each grade level has a clear connection to the next grade level. In elementary school, they are focused on building a fundamental foundation in the understanding of numbers and then that is built upon in higher grades with a focus on analysis and algebra. In Language Arts there is a focus on literacy, reading comprehension, writing and analysis. Another broad foundation is laid at an early age to provide a base to build on as students' progress through each grade. Building these high standards in Math and Language Arts lays the foundation for continuing that into science, technology, and social studies as well.

West Haven District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
West Haven Public Schools follow the Connecticut Common Core of Standards, which strives to increase rigor across all grades and subjects and aligns with college standards to better prepare students for higher education. The standards use higher level thinking criteria to encourage greater thought and learning such as analysis, reasoning, justification, and problem solving. There are grade-by-grade standards that will limit repetition and help students continue to move forward in their education each year. The standards are internationally benchmarked, in that they meet the standards of other high performing countries so that the students can compete in a global economy.
The great focus of the curriculum in West Haven is to ensure all students are college ready when they graduate high school. The standards are built on what are the best practices amongst all states to collectively build the best curriculum possible. The standards are clear and focused to make them easily taught by teachers and in depth learning by students.

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: Reducing Stress towards the SAT's
Many American students are breathing a sigh of relief recently as the importance placed on the SAT for college entrance is easing. In recent years colleges are starting to rethink whether this one test is a true indicator of a student's college readiness. They instead are looking at the student as a whole not just their performance on one test. They can look at their overall GPA, the amount of rigorous courses taken, and their achievements outside of the classroom. The SAT's have historically been one of the single most important exams taken by high school students as they prepare for their college applications but now they can focus more on the well roundedness of their entire education instead.
