Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Merrimack District Curriculum
The Mathematics program seeks to ensure in-depth comprehension of a variety of topics, including the ability to solve problem-sets and incorporate mathematical reasoning into arguments. At the elementary level, students are expected to be proficient in addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. As students progress they should also develop an understanding of algebra, statistics, geometry, and functions.
The Language Arts program aims to develop strong reading and writing skills. Students should be able to interpret texts from a variety of sources, both fiction and nonfiction. As students read more complex tests they should comprehend the various aspects of plot, character, tone, and theme. Similarly, they should be able to communicate this information effectively via the written word, across a variety of mediums. Writing should incorporate a strong vocabulary, sentence fluency, and knowledge of grammatical structure.

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: Writing Persuasively: Avoiding the Slippery Slope
There are a number of fallacies that can hinder a successful argument. One of these is the slippery slope fallacy. This particular fallacy occurs when the person creating the argument makes an assertion that sets off a chain reaction of consequences that may or may not make sense. A slippery slope argument may look something like this: If one does not study for their pre-algebra exam, then they will likely fail the test. As a result of failing the test, they will not be able to advance to the next course. This will lead to them not being able to complete the courses needed to get into a choice college, and the student’s life will be effectively ruined.
This is clearly not a logical argument. While tests are important, and students should prepare for them, a single transgression will not necessarily unfold into the string of consequences suggested. The fallacy sensationalizes the initial action of failing the exam, turning it into a life-altering experience. It is important to avoid this, as it takes credibility away from the claim; in this case, that it is important to study for exams.
