Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Hampden District Curriculum
The Common Core State Standards in Math call for high school students to be doing advanced work with numbers and quantitative information, be able to work with functions and models, and be proficient in algebra, geometry, and statistics and probability. Students learn how to interpret quantitative data and make rational decisions based on the information. They also learn how to make inferences and use probabilities to make decisions. They use models to link classroom math to everyday life and decision-making.
The Common Core State Standards in English Language Arts is organized around reading, writing, speaking and listening, and language. Students read and develop unique comprehension and analysis skills for literature, foundational texts, and non-fiction. In writing, students are expected to learn how to develop an idea, or thesis, and provide adequate support to prove their idea. They write for multiple purposes including analysis, self-reflection, or to express an opinion. Language study is applied to both read and writing, and students work on vocabulary development as well as grammar and conventions.

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: A Guide to the Most Commonly Misspelled Words
Spelling is a big part of school but an area many students struggle with. There is a large list of words that students (and many adults) spell incorrectly. First of all, it would be great if you didn't spell "grateful" as "greatful." How many H's does the word for how tall you are really have? The answer is two, as it is spelled "height" and not "heighth" (three). If you are taking a leisurely stroll, you may realize that "leisure" breaks that old "I before E...except after C" rule. Does "license" have a C or an S or both? You may be tempted to spell "medieval" with an I—think "MIddle Ages"—but an E belongs there instead. One more: Although a "memento" is something that helps you remember an important MOMENT in your life, the word is not spelled by simply slapping an O at the end of moment.
