Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Woodbridge District Curriculum
The English Language Arts curriculum emphasizes reading nonfiction and complex texts as well as writing organized and researched essays and building their vocabularies. The goal is to help students develop the ability to gather information and use evidence to back their claims. The curriculum places importance on nonfiction rather than fiction and writing analytically rather than creatively to teach students how to be critical readers and persuasive writers.
In Mathematics, the curriculum focuses on exploring key topics in great depth during the year. Beginning at the elementary school level, the curriculum focuses on basic concepts like numbers and operations so that students master the foundations of mathematics before moving onto more advanced topics in middle and high school. The curriculum requires all students to meet high standards and emphasizes skills students need to succeed in post-secondary education.

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: Which Is Better: An A in a Mid-Level Class or a B in an Honors Class?
This is a question students often ponder when considering whether to attempt a challenging class or stick with an easier, lower-level class, especially if the student is unsure how well s/he will fare in the challenging course. There isn’t an easy answer to this. A bad grade is a bad grade, but a B isn’t a bad grade. It’s important to keep in mind that colleges do prefer students who are willing to take risks and challenge themselves. Some schools weight grades, which means an AP or Honors class might be worth more, but colleges will then unweight those grades and re-determine the GPA however they see fit, so this isn’t really an answer, either. And a strong GPA that consists of a relatively easy course load isn’t going to impress selective colleges either. The truth is, of course, that it’s better to get an A in an honors level class.
