Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Amherst District Curriculum
The Mathematics curriculum, which follows the Common Core, begins by introducing students to numbers and counting, as well as basic arithmetic. As students become comfortable with these concepts, they advance to more complex skills. Within elementary school, students will become proficient in addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, basic geometry, and fractions and decimals. In secondary school, students will be exposed to pre-algebra and algebra, and are able to take their skills as far as calculus. Students are also expected to become familiar with various elements of geometry and statistics.
The Science curriculum begins with a basic understanding of concepts that are easy to observe. Students are asked to use inquiry to develop opinions about the world around them. Then, they will use the scientific method to understand the basis for their observations. As they advance, they will be expected to understand more specific scientific processes in the fields of biology, chemistry, physics and earth science.

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: Rhetorical Devices: Antithesis
One type of parallel structure that is often encountered in literature is antithesis. His happens when you place two opposite items within a parallel structure. For example, the phrase “many are called, but few are chosen” juxtaposes several different things. The word “many” is placed in direct contrast to the word “few”, and the word “called” is contrasted with “chosen”. Argumentative writers use antithesis to show a stark contrast between two ideas, and a good writer is able to employ antithesis to help strengthen their argument.
