Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Duxbury District Curriculum
The curriculum team has created a Curriculum Review Cycle schedule that maps out when each subject area curriculum will be reviewed up until the year 2020. Each content area is reviewed every five years and enhanced based on its and the students performance achieving the goals. The Science and Technology objectives are also regularly expanded upon so that they are current and relevant.
The year after the curriculum is reviewed, a new one is developed. The year after that, the new revised curriculum is implemented, with the next year being dedicated to the first phase of evaluation of that curriculum. Lastly, the final year of the cycle is the second phase of the evaluation, which involves analysis and planning for the future. The following year, the process starts all over again, with the curriculum being reviewed once again. Therefore, the year-by-year cycle is as follows: review, develop, implement, evaluate, and analyze and plan.

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: Different Approaches to Teaching Reading
When it comes to teaching reading—arguably the most important skill for children to learn—there is not one agreed-upon “best way” of teaching it. Some experts believe that some techniques are better than others, while others feel that a balanced approach that incorporates several techniques is the best way to go. One strategy centers on phonics instruction. The philosophy of the phonics-based approach is to teach students to first recognize the sound-letter relationships and phonemes (sounds) of the English language so that they can read words by decoding them (sounding them out). Within phonics instruction are different takes on the best way to teach phonics as well. Those who advocate phonics favor a “bottom-up” view of reading, meaning that we should start with the smallest unit of text—letters—before progressing to words, sentences, and stories.
