Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Wilton District Curriculum
Instruction in Wilton schools’ math classes is based on standards that develop students’ understanding of core mathematics concepts such as problem solving, numeracy, and pattern recognition. The standards introduce students to these concepts in the earliest grades, and then go on to further develop students’ knowledge of the concepts as students move up grade-by-grade. Mathematical literacy is also emphasized and students are expected to be adept at working with word problems and explaining their own mathematical thinking.
Instruction in Wilton schools’ English Language Arts classes is based on standards that require students to be capable of both reading and comprehending fiction and non-fiction texts. After students master these basic literacy skills, the standards require them to develop higher-level literacy skills such as research, textual interpretation and analytic criticism, and communicating both verbally and in writing.

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: Encouraging Writing at Home
These days there are few parents who do not take an interest in their children’s reading education. They make sure kids read books that are on the right reading level for the kids. But what about writing? Do parents make sure that kids do the right kind of writing, and that they write things that are on their writing level? Parents should encourage kids to write more at home. Parents can encourage them to take a few minutes to write a silly story, or to take a little longer and write about their day. When children are first learning to read, they can dictate a story to the parent and then illustrate the final product. To develop reflective and self-analytic skills, children can journal, which gives them time to write and will be when they have a natural desire to learn more about writing or language. Whatever the kids do, they will be practicing writing, and a little writing practice will make a big difference in later years.
