Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Manchester-by-the-Sea District Curriculum
Manchester Essex Regional High School posts curriculum guides for each English class. This includes honors- and college predatory-level courses for all grade levels and AP courses for eleventh and twelfth grade. Curriculum guides are also included for the journalism and creative writing courses. Each curriculum guide consists of a brief description of the course, specific course goals that students are expected to attain, the overarching essential questions that guide the course, an outline of the structure and timeline of the class, the various instructional methods that are used, and materials that are needed.
The English department recognizes that the English language arts provide the foundation of student's educational program and strive to develop students as readers, writers, thinkers, and speakers. The general goals developed by the English department are for students to gain full reading comprehension and writing skills, speak clearly and with purpose in both small- and large-group settings, gain exposure to literature through perspectives different from their own, find joy through self-expression, and develop a lifelong love for literature.

Manchester-by-the-Sea District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Manchester Essex Regional School District serves the towns of Manchester-by-the-Sea and Essex. Each town has its own elementary school, while the middle and high schools are located in Manchester. The Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks guide the learning process from elementary through high school and provides continuity and consistency in the layout of standards. The standards are grade-appropriate goals for learning in each subject and contain both expectations for knowledge and skills as well as opportunities for critical thinking. This supports the college and career readiness standards that the district has for its students, which are also developed through service learning, character education, and extracurricular activities.
We currently cover the following Manchester-by-the-Sea-area school district: Manchester Essex Regional School District.

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: Commonly Confused Words
It can be easy for students to mix up commonly confused words. The first example of words that students may use incorrectly are "accept," which means to take something that is being given, and "except"--another word for excluding. A second example is "advice" and "advise." "Advice" is a noun that means a recommendation or opinion given by someone else, often in response to a dilemma; "advise" is a verb that means the person is actually giving his/her opinion or suggestion to someone. "When I had a conflict in my family, I asked for advice." "When I have a conflict in my family, my two best friends advise me on what to do next." One more: "Allusion" and "illusion" are pronounced almost identically, but the former means a reference in a piece of literature, while the latter refers to a mirage.
