Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Windham District Curriculum
Within the Common Core standards, an importance is placed on literacy starting as early as kindergarten. Students are not just taught how to read but also vocabulary, writing, speaking, and critical reading skills. These skills translate into all areas of a student’s life beyond their English classroom. In science, these reading skills provide the needed ability to be able to read and interpret scientific meaning and develop critical conceptual understanding.
In Mathematics, fewer topics are taught in a given school year. This allows teachers and students ample time to not just teach a topic, but be able to delve deeper into understanding. This gives students a chance to internalize the content before building upon it in the next topic. The Common Core seeks to educate students in such a way that they are ready to compete globally in all aspects of life. Students are taught to investigate and ask questions and develop their knowledge in science and technology but also in world languages and culture.

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: Fair Homework Expectations
Amazingly, as young as kindergarten, students all over the world are asked to spend eight hours in a classroom every day only to then bring home another hour or more of homework. Parents must then carve out this time after their own long day to ensure that their child completes their homework. But to what purpose? If you spent eight hours working and then your boss asked you to spend your own time repeating your work at home, most would be pretty upset and demand an end to the overtime. Why then is it okay to ask our little ones to work, work, work with no end in sight. Homework should be well-considered assignments and for the littlest ones combine skills with fun activities. Young children will always need down time to just be kids and play.
