Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lawrence District Curriculum
Students should be able not just to provide a solution to a problem but also to demonstrate a deep understanding of the problem and develop various approaches to solving it. They should be able to figure out what they need to solve a problem, and to evaluate the solutions they develop, explaining how and why they work or don’t work. They should be able to express the problem in the language of mathematics by using symbols and abstract concepts.
By eighth grade, students need to master the concept of nonrational numbers and be able to estimate their value by using the rational number system. They also need to be able to work effectively with radicals and exponents, using square and cube roots to express answers to problems. They will be required to express relationships through graphs and to use linear equations and functions. In geometry, students need to understand the concepts of congruence and similarity, to use the Pythagorean Theorum and to solve problems that involve volume.

Lawrence District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
All public schools in Massachusetts follow the state’s Curriculum Framework, which incorporates the Common Core Standards adopted by many states across the nation. There is an emphasis on Mathematics, the Curriculum Framework cites the findings of the National Research Council’s report “Adding It Up” which identifies major areas of basic competence required for literacy in mathematics. A goal is for students to develop a strong operational sense and be able to draw upon that to perform mental or conceptual math.
We currently cover the following Lawrence-area school district: Lawrence Public Schools.

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: Developing Ideas for an Essay
Have a major paper to write? The hardest part is getting started. And the hardest part of getting started is knowing what to write about. The good news is that there are lots of strategies you can use to develop ideas to write about. First, brainstorming which is a quick exercise designed to generate a lot of ideas in a short span of time. Give yourself one minute to do this. Then, look at your list and pick out your favorite ideas, and take another minute to brainstorm about those items. Or, freewriting which is like brainstorming,and also a quick exercise. Give yourself a few minutes to write----nonstop. It can be very effective to freewrite after you brainstorm. Brainstorming just requires a list; freewriting forces you to build on the list by writing out the ideas more completely.
