Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Amherst District Curriculum
The middle school science curriculum in Amherst revolves around earth-space science, physical science, and life science. Students work in each of the three domains to develop a comprehensive understanding of the natural world. Working with rocks and soils, students develop an understanding of classification and identification systems that organize types of rocks and soils. Matter and motion are studied as well. Students examine particular matter, explore linear motion, and develop an understanding of forms of energy as part of the physical science strand.
In social studies, Amherst high school students take part in an in-depth study of contemporary world issues. Students evaluate the dynamics of international relations in the context of today’s complex world. Students look at trade agreements, alliances, and technologies as being vehicles for the increasing interconnectedness that nations have. Learners analyze the issue of sustainability, and compare how various countries approach the issues of maintaining a healthy environment for future generations.

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: Three Reasons Why Technology Is Great for Education
There are a wide variety of benefits that students derive from having a technology-rich learning environment. However, there are three advantages that stand out among the rest. First, technology allows children to expand the time and space in which they learn. Utilizing tablets, laptops, the Internet, and other popular technologies, children can learn whenever they want, whether at home, in the car, or at school. Second, the interactive nature of technology means that children can have a deeper engagement in the material. Rather than passively absorbing knowledge from their teacher, children can instead pull valuable information from their studies themselves. Lastly, technology allows children to collaborate and communicate with other learners around the world. Doing so prepares them for life and work in our highly globalized society.
