Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Ayer District Curriculum
The district has developed specific services for students in need and at-risk. Resources and support for curriculum research and development are provided. The student/staff ratio is kept to a minimum to ensure learning. Using the Massachusetts Curriculum Framework, designed to align with the Common Core State Standards, the district pushes for each student to be college and career ready. These standards are also tied to the MCAS Assessments to ensure that students achieve these learning goals.
To achieve this, the Ayer Shirley Regional School District utilizes the Language Arts and Literacy standards, which teach reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills across the disciplines--such as Science, History/Social Studies, and Technical Subjects. By integrating these skills throughout the curriculum, the district ensures that students are being taught literacy skills for each specific subject area, a skill that will definitely prepare students for college and the workplace.

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.

Chalk Talk: Tackling Time-Management
Being able to manage time is not something that occurs naturally for everyone. For many, it is a skill that must be learned and perfected. However, how do you learn how to effectively manage time? For students, this question is crucial for success. In order to master time-management skills, your student could try one or all of the following – first, keep a calendar. This allows your student to visually see where all his or her time is being spent. If your student records all of his or her responsibilities, it will be more difficult to overbook time, allowing for more realistic time control.Overall, keep things simple. Make sure your student is only committing to activities, events, and projects that he or she can actually devote time for. Cut out the things that are less important. Learning and developing a new skill can be tricky at first. Over time, the results are definitely worth the effort.
