Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Belchertown District Curriculum
The English Language Arts curriculum ties together reading, writing, speaking and listening, media studies, and research skills as major areas of learning for students. The skills in each area are built upon yearly and students learn to read tests ranging from poetry to primary source documents and learn different strategies to glean the most information from each type of reading. Writing is focused on narrative, reflective, and analytic writing and students are taught how to organize and present their thoughts in writing.
In Mathematics, the Belchertown Public School District focuses on access to learning across disciplines. Though calculation skills are necessary, more emphasis has been placed on problem-solving skills, which can easily be translated into other areas of the curriculum. A fine balance between practicing procedural skills and understanding mathematical concepts will not only prepare students for deeper thinking and comprehension, but for both career and college as well.

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: How to Stay Healthy at School
Going back to school means many new things: new teachers, new classes, new friends. . .and new germs. When kids are introduced to new germs, whether at the beginning of the school year or the beginning of the flu season, they can obviously become too ill to attend school. By following a few simple tips, however, some of those germs can be avoided. First, wash your hands. A lot. It is necessary to wash your hands before you eat and after you have used the restroom, blown your nose, or even coughed into your hands. Not only does washing your hands prevent you from getting sick, but it helps to slow the spread of germs to others if you are contagious and don’t know it. Second, stay at home when sick. Be sure to keep your child at home anytime symptoms appear. When kids are contagious, they will only infect others by attending school. Besides, if they are sick, they probably don’t feel like being at school anyway.
