Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lowell District Curriculum
In Mathematics, students must meet standards to show that they are able to apply mathematical reasoning to problems in everyday life, that they can identify and select the appropriate tools to use to solve mathematical problems, that they are able to communicate clearly and precisely through the use of mathematical symbols and language, that they can see mathematical patterns or structures in data, that they identify patterns to apply reasoning effectively.
At each grade level, students are expected to master increasingly complex concepts and demonstrate deeper understanding of and competence in mathematical reasoning. By grade 3, students are expected to be able to use mathematical language to present problems that use multiplication and division, to multiply and divide numbers 1-100, and to solve problems by adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing. They should also demonstrate their ability to understand and work with fractions, to solve problems that require them to develop data by collecting measurements, and to explain the meaning of graphs.

Lowell District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
All public schools in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts adhere to a Curriculum Framework that incorporates the Common Core standards adapted by several states. Since 1993, Massachusetts has measured students’ progress in accordance with the Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System (MCAS). This system ensures that the objectives laid out in the curriculum are met by all students. The curriculum requires that teachers cover a series of objectives that create the thorough foundation from which students can progress to more complex work.
We currently cover the following Lowell-area school district: Lowell 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: Reading Comprehension Tips
Everyone has had the experience of reading a paragraph and realizing they have no idea what they just read. Deep reading is like having a conversation with the book. We have to think as we read if we really want to understand the text. Annotating the text can keep you focused on your reading so that you will learn more in less time. And this strategy has other benefits as well. It will help you study for tests and write papers on the material. Annotation simply means adding notes to a text. The notes can be written on the page itself, or on a separate sheet of paper or computer document---whatever is most convenient and appropriate for you.
