Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Willington District Curriculum
Using the Common Core Standards Initiative as the framework, Willington Public Schools offers a well-rounded education for its students. Elementary students are taught in subject areas that include mathematics, language arts, science, social studies, physical education, music, and art. The schools are are diligent about incorporating computers and mobile learning technology in instruction.
In science, students account for how biological diversity is the result of evolution. Technology courses help kids become proficient in the use of computers and computer programs in the context of next generation career areas. Students also acquire an understanding of natural processes, such as natural selection and evolution. A study of basic scientific laws is also undertaken, including a discussion of Newton’s laws of motion and how they predict the behavior of objects. Students learn to observe phenomena, collect data, and interpret that data to increase their understanding of scientific events and procedures as well.

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.

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.
