Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Winthrop District Curriculum
Additionally, the school has developed curricular pages for students containing links to resources that will help students excel and demonstrate their creativity in each content area. For example, the English language arts page includes an interactive flipbook maker, a website with various graphic organizers, a note-taking tool, a poetry archive, and other resources to help students find reading materials that are interesting to them. Students are also taught a variety of styles of writing so that they are able to address different audiences.
The math page contains an animated math glossary, a Cash Out game that helps with making correct change, a snowflake maker, a virtual dice roller, a graph creator, and more. Fort Banks Elementary School is dedicated to providing instruction on the five components of reading—phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension.

Winthrop District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Winthrop Public Schools is a relatively small school district that is comprised of three schools and almost 2,000 students. There is an elementary school with grades K-3, a middle school with grades 4-7 (which is referred to as an elementary school), and a high school. A new school that combines the middle and high schools is currently under construction. Winthrop’s Cummings Elementary School holds an annual Curriculum Night to share information and updates with regards to the curriculum with families and community members and help make parents aware of the open line of communication that exists between them and the school.
We currently cover the following Winthrop-area school district: Winthrop Public Schools.

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: What Do Fourth Graders Learn in ELA?
According to the Common Core Standards for English Language Arts, fourth graders must have a strong grasp of key details in texts, being able to determine the theme of stories, poems, and plays as well as summarizing these texts by paying attention to the important details. Not only should they recognize themes, but they should see how common themes are treated in different texts. Similarly, they must determine the main idea and supporting details of nonfiction texts. Students will have to demonstrate that they understand the differences between poetry, drama, and prose and should recognize elements of each. Fourth grade students should be able to compare and contrast first-person and third-person narrations of stories. They should be at a more advanced stage at which foundational skills are mostly ingrained, but they will continue to use their knowledge of sound-letter correspondences, syllabication, and roots and affixes to read multisyllabic words both in and out of context.
