Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Dennis District Curriculum
The Wixon Innovation School has added 40 minutes to each school day, which equates to 17 extra days. In order to enhance student learning, the teachers work in teams in weekly professional development communities. Overall, the innovation schools are unique in that they aim to make the most out of each school day by adding blocks of uninterrupted learning time, providing opportunities for struggling students to receive extra help, incorporating weekly enrichment groups for gifted learners, integrating authentic reading instruction, increasing music and the arts instruction, focusing on problem solving in math and engineering, and offering smaller class sizes.
The district’s Office of Instruction has educational coaches that provide resources, collect and analyze student data, have specialized knowledge of the curriculum, support and mentor classroom teachers, are experts in the best instructional practices, are catalysts for necessary change, are leaders, and are lifelong learners.

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: How Parents Can Connect Home and School
It is important for parents to create educational opportunities for their students in the home, and it is even more beneficial if these experiences connect and are specific to what students are doing and learning in school. Parents should always be informed of what their children are doing in school. Most teachers send home regular newsletters and/or create class websites with the goings-on. It is advantageous to focus on areas in which students struggle, designing activities around these concepts or skills. Since the child is already frustrated by this content, it would be a good idea to integrate fun activities or educational games that are relevant. Parents should be aware of struggle areas through communication with teachers as well as observing their children doing homework. Parents can also discretely have their child practice math through routine tasks. For example, if a child is learning measurements in school, parents can work on this concept with the child while they are baking. Of course, technology should not be forgotten; parents should be on the lookout for educational websites and/or online games that connect to what their child is learning.
