Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Rochester District Curriculum
In language arts, grammar and language use is studied beginning in elementary school. The earliest parts of speech students learn and gain an understanding of are nouns and verbs. In order to identify nouns in a sentence, students will be taught to determine if any words are examples of people, places, things, or objects. When learning about verbs, they will first be asked to look for any words that are examples of actions. Eventually, students will gain an understanding of pronouns as well as other types of verbs such as linking and helping verbs.
In math, students learn there are four ways to understand multiplication problems. First, the commutative property states that, even if one switches around the factors in a multiplication problem, the product will remain the same. Next, according to the associative property, it does not matter where the parenthesis are placed in a multiplication problem; the answer remains the same. The identity property states that any number multiplied by one equals itself. Finally, according to the distributive property, multiplying a value by a sum is the same as multiplying that same value by each of the addends in the problem and adding those two values together.

Rochester District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Old Rochester Regional School District uses the Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks to guide teaching and learning in core subjects and is aligned with Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System (MCAS) tests in English language arts, English language proficiency, history and social science, mathematics, and science and technology/engineering. In recent years, the mathematics, and science and technology/engineering has been integrated so that students learn about these related areas in an integrated fashion. Another update to the curriculum is the increased emphasis on informational texts in language arts courses.
We currently cover the following Rochester-area school district: Old Rochester Regional School District.

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: A Guide to the Most Commonly Misspelled Words
Spelling is a big part of school but an area many students struggle with. There is a large list of words that students (and many adults) spell incorrectly. Start out with ACQUIRING the correct spelling of "acquire"; don't forget that C! The second part of "amateur" sounds like the word "mature," but you can see it is not spelled "amature"! It can be difficult to remember if suffixes of certain words contain an A, E, or I; think of words such as "calendar," "cemetery," and "collectible." In the word discipline, students may forget if there is an S or C or, if there are both, which order they go in. Although words such as "precede" contain the -cede suffix, it is not spelled "excede" but "exceed." One more: "Fiery" is another tricky word, as students are tempted to simply place a Y at the end of "fire."
