Educating Our Parents: Understanding the New Bedford District Curriculum
By the 7th grade, students should be able to identify more than one central idea in a text and to cite several pieces of evidence to support their interpretation of a text. They should be able to trace how a writer develops and relates the main ideas in a text and to sum up these ideas succinctly. They should be able to explain how people, ideas, and events are interrelated both in discussion and in writing. They should be able to figure out the connotative meanings of words on the basis of their context.
In the writing curriculum, by grade 7, students are required to write essays that focus on and support clear arguments supported by reasonable evidence, and to organize and conclude their arguments by using transitional words and phrases that lend coherence to their arguments. They should be able to use language appropriate to a formal essay style. They should also be able to write for a variety of other purposes (informational, expository, persuasive and creative), and to select appropriate evidence to illustrate and explain their ideas.

New Bedford District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The schools in New Bedford follow a curriculum that uses standards as a measure of progress at attaining proficiency within each subject. The standards follow Common Core Standards expectations and are assessed by the statewide MCAS tests. Literacy and math are focused on for their role in supporting learning in other subject areas. Students develop various skills beyond their core learning that make a successful future more likely, including appreciation for diversity, collaboration, accountability, and integrity.
We currently cover the following New Bedford-area school district: New Bedford 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: Memorization Strategies
On average, about 25% of your grades depend on how well you do on tests. And how well you do on tests always depends, at least in part, on how well you memorize information. The good news is that there are some very effective strategies you can use to improve your memory. Another strategy is called the pegword method, which you can use to remember information that involves numbers or the order of things. In this method, numbers are matched with items that rhyme (one, sun; two, shoe; three, tree, and so on), and then associating the information with the item and the number. For example, if you have to remember the names of the third President of the United States, you would take the image of a tree and picture Thomas Jefferson sitting under a tree.
