Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Amherst District Curriculum
The Math standards build a solid foundation in mathematical concepts in the elementary grades. Mathematical instruction focuses on the in-depth study of whole numbers, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions and decimals. Built across grade levels, these skills help students develop speed and accuracy and develop knowledge and understanding of how to use mathematical skills and concepts. This procedural fluency helps middle and high school students apply their mathematical knowledge concepts and skills to real world problems.
The English/Language Arts Standards focuses on closely connected strands related to reading, writing, speaking, listening and language. The revised standards also set requirements for literacy in history/social studies, science and technical subjects. English/Language Arts standards focus on careful reading of fiction and non-fiction texts, increased academic vocabulary and require students to discuss their reading and writing by providing supporting evidence.

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.

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.
