Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Groveland District Curriculum
Pentucket Regional School District places great emphasis on the Habits of Learning in its curriculum and has created an associated rubric for all grade levels. These Habits for Learning are categorized by Creative Explorations, Communication, Thinking, Collaboration, and Independence. Under Creative Explorations is identifying and anticipating learning tasks, using appropriate resources, taking academic-related risks, and evaluating and reflecting on one's learning.
Thinking revolves around identifying and questioning; analyzing, applying, and evaluating, which all work systematically; and reflecting. Collaboration includes active engagement, being an effective team member who participates and is open-minded to the thoughts and opinions of others, and being committed to the group process. Independence involves being goal-oriented, autonomous thinking, the ability to work through tasks from start to finish, and persevering. Students receive a score from one to four in each category based on their proficiency.

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.

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: Gender Differences in Middle School
Even though each child is different, there are general similarities. In the middle school years, boys have a tendency to be more physical than girls and a little louder. Because of this, at this age, male bullying can go undetected. Parents need to be aware of torn clothing, bruises or behavioral changes to see if their child is being bullied. Male friendships, at this age, find friends always vying for position in their hierarchical framework. They may share insults but yet through this they learn to change the behavior. Girls, however, tend to hide their anger and aggression. So instead of being verbal, they may pass notes, spread rumors or exclude others. Girls also tend to turn on their friends and if they become scared of speaking up they can turn to bullying to prevent become a victim. This can lead to a mental pain for these females unless authority figures are made aware of this silent behavior. If parents are concerned about bullying, they should talk with the child and listen.
