Freetown District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Freetown Lakeville Regional School District is home to three elementary schools, and intermediate school, and Apponoquet Regional High School. The schools follow the progression of learning standards laid out in the Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks and incorporates the goals of Common Core in English Language Arts and Math. The standards are written so that they describe the types of skills, concepts, and knowledge that students should learn at each grade level but do not prescribe how teachers should instruct students in each objective. Beyond core learning, there are also many courses that help students pursue their talents while they also prepare for post-secondary life pursuing their own academic and professional goals.
We currently cover the following Freetown-area school district: Freetown Lakeville Regional School District.

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: Algebra 1 and 2
Algebra generally comprises two of the three math classes students are required to take to graduate high school. Ninth and advanced eighth graders take algebra 1, while eleventh and advanced tenth graders enroll in algebra 2, meaning there is usually a year in-between reserved for geometry. Algebra 1 often starts out with an introduction to and review of necessary concepts such as variables, exponents and powers, order of operations, and equations and inequalities. In algebra 1, students solve linear equations of various types and involving all operations, graph and write equations and functions, work with square roots and solve the more complex quadratic equations, and work with polynomials and factoring; each concept becomes increasingly more complex. Algebra 2 involves many of these same concepts as well as more work with functions, simplifying expressions, using matrices to solve equations, using logarithms to solve exponential equations, and using binomial theorem.
