Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Bourne District Curriculum
Students will read literature of various genres and types and of greater complexity. In writing, they must write logical arguments including relevant textual evidence and conduct research. Students will orally communicate more frequently—not only through formal presentations but also by informal class discussions in small-group and whole-class settings.
Bourne Public Schools have developed a K-12 Literacy Action Plan in order to form literate students capable of independently succeeding at their academic and life goals. The Literacy Action Plan is broken down into four components: the development and implementation of a relevant and researched standards-based curriculum that has consistent literacy expectations for students across all content levels, the use of assessment data to inform reading instruction, the consistent incorporation of Tier 1 interventions, and communication with parents and the community with regards to the district’s progress and as an invitation for feedback.

Our flagship tutoring programs are available for $199.99/month which include regular one-on-one tutoring, academic mentorship, bi-monthly progress reports, learning profiles, and parental conference calls.
Bourne District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Bourne Public Schools mission is to help students be successful, work with the community to cultivate student achievement, incorporate an evidence-based relevant curriculum, and expect universal accountability. Bourne Public Schools use the Common Core Standards. The district describes the many benefits of these standards: rigorous content that helps prepare students for college and their careers, clear and consistent standards, the requirement that students must apply what they have learned through higher order thinking, the extension of the Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks, and evidence-based standards.
We currently cover the following Bourne-area school district: Bourne Public Schools.

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: Book Review: “Chrysanthemum”
“Chrysanthemum,” written and illustrated by Kevin Henkes, is a book that, although does not outwardly discuss bullying, can be read to young children in an anti-bullying lesson. Before attending school for the first time, Chrysanthemum thought her name was perfect—that was until all her classmates made fun of her long, unique name. Then, Chrysanthemum felt terrible and began hating her name. Things changed when the teacher stuck up for Chrysanthemum, stating that she loved the name and that her first name was also that of a flower. The students all idolized their teacher and realized that there was nothing wrong with the name even though it was long and difficult to pronounce. Their teacher expertly modeled how to help someone being bullied. This is a very important concept—not just what to do if you are being bullied but how to react if someone else is. The book is understandable for primary school-aged children in helping them recognize how they can hurt people with their words and the power they have to help others who are hurting.
