Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Harvard District Curriculum
Bromfield School's English department develops the reading-writing connection through all language arts classes and across all content areas. The goal of the rigorous English program is to develop oral and written fluency through reading response, the literary essay, and the research paper. The sequence of English courses for students in grades 9-12 is as follows: Introduction to Literature, Classical Literature, American Literature, and English Literature. The district has a comprehensive writing guide that includes a reference writing sheet with tips for formatting rules and editing symbols.
At Hildreth Elementary, students are engaged in a variety of activities in their math classes; teachers utilize interactive SMART Boards when incorporating whole-group instruction, place students in small groups for collaboration, and allow students to independently apply the mathematical strategies they have learned. The school uses two math programs; Investigations by TERC revolves around a constructivist, hands-on, student-centered approach, while Go Math provides further support in the mathematical skills emphasized on the state assessment.

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: Number Patterns
Students begin learning to "skip-count" (by twos, fives, tens, etc.) at young ages, and by the time they reach third grade, are expected to be able to solve for missing numbers in patterns using their knowledge of the operations. The following is an example: Students may be asked what number comes next after the numbers 8, 16, 24, and 32. If they recognize that each number in the sequence is a factor of eight (8x1, 8x2, 8x3, 8x4), they would recognize that the number 40 completes the pattern (8x5). They may also be asked to find numbers beyond this in the sequence or to find a number in the middle of a sequence. Third graders will also need strong knowledge of odd and even numbers and when they result in different types of scenarios. For example, they must recognize that multiplying an even number by an odd number always results in an even product.
