Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Boston District Curriculum
The Academic Achievement Framework (AAF) is a research-based multi-tier system designed to support the academic development of all learners. The school district has also added two levels of support to assist with the implementation of AAF. Level 1 of AAF is teacher led with central office support and level 2 involves monthly school management level support. AAF is a team approach to improve the academic success of all learners. Currently, sixty schools participate in the AAF initiative with more schools to follow.
The Language Arts curriculum has also been designed to promote success in all subjects, and to that end there is an increase in non-fiction comprehension skills. There is also a focus on literary works. Theme development in literary works is examined, with students analyzing how authors enrich and enhance the theme by utilizing strong character development and sequencing to move the story along. Teachers often make use of the Socratic seminar to further develop students’ reading, writing, speaking and listening skills. Classes discuss textual elements, pose questions and offer insights into various kinds of texts.

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.
