Educating Our Parents: Understanding the West Orange District Curriculum
The West Orange Public Schools believe that it is best practice to develop curricula that is aligned with the Common Core and New Jersey Core Content Curriculum Standards. Both of these programs specify what students should learn and know at each grade level from kindergarten through the 12th grade. The Common Core Standards provide guidelines for math and language arts education, while the New Jersey Core Content Curriculum Standards outline learning outcomes for science, social studies, the arts, health and physical education, technology, world languages and 21st Century life and careers.
The Language Arts standards are both rigorous and evidence-based, and prepare all students for success in post-secondary education, the armed forces or the workforce. In elementary school, students learn the basics of spelling, punctuation and grammar. In middle school, students learn to speak well and be active listeners. Once in high school, students begin to analyze texts for meaning, make inferences about possible outcomes of a story, and learn how to conduct research.

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 Prepare for a Test
Many people are nervous and feel some anxiety before taking a test. This is perfectly normal! Since there is so much testing involved in today’s educational system, it is important that students are as prepared as possible to take those important tests. There are several things to keep in mind when preparing for a test. First, ask questions before test day. If you aren’t sure what will be on the test, ask your teacher. If you find that you don’t understand a concept that you need to know, ask a friend or a parent for help. Second, if a study guide is available, take it home and make sure you know every single item on it. Once you have all the answers, have someone quiz you. You could even go to school a few minutes early and ask your teacher to quiz you. Finally, when test day approaches try to get a good night’s sleep the night before, and make sure you eat a good breakfast before school. You can’t perform at your best on an empty stomach!
