Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Monson District Curriculum
Monson Public School are considering implementing PARCC to replace the current MCAS state assessment and put together an informational presentation about the new exam, with the cover of the presentation uttering “texts worth reading, problems worth solving, tests worth taking.” The presentation explains that the content on PARCC addresses what students need to know for success in college and careers. The MCAS test, on the other hand, did not measure students’ college or career readiness.
The presentation describes the new assessment as engaging, as it tests extremely important critical thinking and problem solving abilities. PARCC also relates to the Common Core Standards, measures the full range of students’ performance, enables teachers to use data to inform their instruction throughout the year, and is a technology-based assessment. The presentation also compares questions from both the new and old assessments. The full presentation can be viewed here.

Monson District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Monson Public Schools contain three schools and approximately 1,400 students. The district’s mission is to have high academic standards for students—allowing them to reach their potential—and to develop students who are productive global citizens. The district follows the Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks which incorporate Common Core Standards in Math and Language Arts. Each subject is described according to its major topics (such as Biology or Chemistry in Science) and goals are laid out so that each year students are gaining in their knowledge and understanding of the subject’s key concepts. The district also promotes the development of strong social skills, especially those related to respecting diversity and multiculturalism.
We currently cover the following Monson-area school district: Monson Public Schools.

One of her teachers praised her maturity, modesty, intelligence, and willingness to help others. *Note: She finished in the top 15 of the Miss Teen USA 2014 pageant.
- Monson Guidance Director Looks to Expand Anti-Bullying Program - Monson High’s Guidance Director called for an expansion of the school’s anti-bullying and prejudice program called “Bridges,” which is conducted by the National Conference for Community and Justice.

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.

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: What Is Trigonometry?
Trigonometry, or "trig" as the kids call it, is not as well-known as its cousins algebra and geometry, but it is a common math class taken by high school students. Trigonometry is not usually a required course but is often taken by advanced juniors who have already taken both algebras 1 and 2 and geometry or by seniors who plan to attend college. The word trigonometry contains the prefix "tri," which means "three," so it is not surprising that the subject heavily involves the three-sided triangle. Specifically, it has to do with the relationships involving the lengths and angles of triangle. Trigonometry involves many of the foundations of geometry, including hypotenuse, opposite theorem, pi, and the Pythagorean theorem. A major part of this math is the trigonometric functions of sine, cosine, tangent, and cotangent—all used as solutions of triangles.
