Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Cambridge District Curriculum
Cambridge’s English language arts curriculum includes K-5 standards that promote skill development for reading informational texts. Students learn how to engage in active reading strategies in order to identify the main idea and key details of a reading. This includes asking and answering questions with linkages to specific passages of the text. Learners also work on determining the meaning of unknown words and phrases, particularly those that are technical, by using the context in which they appear.
In Social Studies, the role of the people in a democratic government is examined. The U.S. Bill of Rights is studied as well. Specifically, students examine Civil War Era amendments to determine how they improved protections of individual rights. Twentieth century topics include the involvement of the U.S. in the First and Second World Wars. Students learn how the wars were devastating on humanity, yet good for the U.S. economy. Social changes after World War II are examined. Students learn about the beginnings of the Civil Rights movement, and how the success of African-Americans in gaining greater levels of equality inspired the women’s rights movement and equality movements by Latinos.

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: Local Financial Literacy Curriculum
Financial literacy is a central component of Cambridge’s curriculum as well. Learners examine various careers, exploring aspects such as income potential, educational requirements, and job satisfaction. Students also identify the characteristics of a good worker, including timeliness, dependability, honesty, and communication. The processes involved in making responsible financial decisions is analyzed, with students identifying the differences between good and bad investments, the value of saving money each month, and the dangers of an overreliance on credit cards. Decision-making strategies that promote smart financial planning are explored, with students devising an understanding of various banking products, such as savings, CDs, and other investments, that can improve one’s long-term financial health. Credit and debt issues are also discussed. Students learn about what makes for a good credit score, and explore the difficulties individuals have if their credit is poor.
