Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Hopkinton District Curriculum
The Common Core Standards for Math for elementary school focus on operations and algebraic thinking. When students are multiplying, they need to recognize rules that are always true about certain types of multiplication problems. There are four common multiplication properties - the commutative property, the associative property, the identity property and the distributive property - which give students different ways to understand the function they are performing from a critical standpoint.
The Common Core Standards for English places emphasis on writing. Students learn how to construct an essay, the steps of the writing process (prewriting, identifying the topic and thesis, writing drafts, revising), how to construct a written answer to an open-ended question, an explanation of terms often used in open-response questions (e.g.: analyze, compare/contrast, interpret, or justify), a guide on how to devise an outline, a thorough explanation of plagiarism and how to avoid it, guidelines for writing a bibliography or works cited page, and how to cite sources within the body of a paper.

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: Homework Help
Parents walk the tightrope between helping children too much or too little when they have a homework assignment. There are a few things that parents can do, however. First, help the child make a checklist of what they need to do. Make sure the list addresses which parts should be finished first, when it is due and any special materials needed. Then go over the directions with the child to make sure the directions are clear. There may be a word, or phrase, that the child does not understand and can be slowing them down. Parents should also observe the child while they are working to see if they are becoming frustrated. If this is occurring, allow them to take a short break so when they come back, they may be able to face the work with a clear mind. Finally, to help make the material they are learning relevant to their lives, talk about the material with the child and brainstorm its importance.
