Research clearly shows that social, emotional, and cognitive development are interdependent. Children need social and emotional proficiency to succeed in school and later as competent adults. Students who are socially and emotionally skilled score higher on standardized tests. Social and emotional competence leads to greater academic capability over time. Among students with the same academic test scores in elementary school, those who develop better social and problem-solving skills by middle school attain higher test scores and grades in high school.
Friends of New Market and those who network and serve with us are establishing a partnership with our youngest community members. Tutoring offers the chance to establish academic and social relationships with our children. We partner with schools to train and oversee the tutoring process.
