Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Ludlow District Curriculum
In addition, the district utilizes the Scholastic Reading and Math Inventories (SRI and SMI) to help inform instruction in these content areas. SRI and SMI are non-timed, computer-based assessments that are given three times a year to students in grades 2 to 8. Each inventory contains about 20 to 30 questions that conform to the Common Core Standards, with each assessment adjusting to the academic level of the student.
Each student’s results show a Lexile Score indicating his/her reading level on a specific scale and a Quantile Score, portraying his/her academic readiness in math. Teachers will receive detailed results of these assessments, so they will be able to determine students’ specific strengths and weaknesses in these content areas and differentiate instruction appropriately. This assessment—along with the knowledge of students’ reading levels—is important because it allows teachers to determine placement of students in groups and in creating assignments.

SchoolTutoring Academy’s tutoring programs for Ludlow students start with a free academic assessment with an Academic Director. Our flagship tutoring programs are available for $199.99/month which include regular one-on-one tutoring, academic mentorship, bi-monthly progress reports, learning profiles, and parental conference calls.
Ludlow District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Ludlow Public Schools contain five schools and just over 3,000 students. Ludlow Public Schools use assessments for students besides the state standardized assessment. The Fountas & Pintell Benchmark Assessment System (BAS) is given on a twice yearly basis to establish reading levels—both independent, which means the student can read the book with 95 to 99% accuracy and with satisfactory comprehension and the instructional level, which is the ideal classroom reading level and means that the student needs a bit of help with the book but can read it with 90 to 94% accuracy.
We currently cover the following Ludlow-area school district: Ludlow Public Schools.

- Third Graders ROAR for Writing - The Chapin School recently started a Journalism Club, which is comprised of 25 third graders (pared down from the original 50 interested students). The young journalists have many duties for their publication, which they named The Chapin ROAR, including designing the paper, writing articles, interviewing subjects, taking photographs, and creating comics.
- Students Celebrate Their Favorite Storybook Characters - In honor of National Reading Month, East Street School celebrated Storybook Character Day during which students and teachers dressed up like their favorite characters, such as Fancy Nancy, Scooby Doo, the Cat in the Hat, Waldo, Cinderella, and others. The school principal joined in on the fun as well, dressing as the Man in the Yellow Hat from the “Curious George” books and discussing with the children his love for and the importance of reading.
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: Supporting Innovative Teaching
One of the many attributes that schools look for in their teaching staff is the ability to be innovative. Teachers should show innovation (using technology is a plus!) and have students engaged in interactive group activities. Having assignments that allow the topic being taught to take on a new life and meaning for each student is also important. Of course, teachers know that no lesson plan ever turns out perfectly (as originally planned), so it is important to listen to constructive criticism from observers. The key is to improve instruction by incorporating feedback while still staying true to oneself as a teacher so that it’s still natural for the students. Administrators and parents are on the teacher’s side and are only trying to help that individual succeed, with the goal of ensuring that all students in the class also succeed.
