Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Norfolk District Curriculum
The Math curriculum instills fundamentals during the elementary years. The beginnings of addition and subtraction are also begun, with learners developing the ability to find the difference or sum of numbers from zero to 10. Given a variety of non-sequential whole numbers, students learn how to properly put them in numerical order from smallest to largest. Once students understand how they can manipulate numbers they are more able to predict mathematic outcomes.
The philosophy of King Phillip Middle School’s English language arts department is to cultivate learners engaged in the processes of reading, writing, speaking, and listening. These literary processes are vital because they allow students to be independent readers and writers, build strong content knowledge, write for a variety of purposes and audiences, critique others, value evidence, understand multiple perspectives and cultures, and effectively use technology and digital media. Students participate in writing activities that expose them to a variety of kinds of writing, for a number of different purposes.

Norfolk District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
King Philip Regional School District serves students who reside in Norfolk, Plainville, and Wrentham. The schools follow the Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks which focuses on the major topics of each subject and deepens students knowledge in them each year. One requirement for graduation is that seniors complete a senior project. They may create a project around school issues, such as bullying, cliques, funding for art and music programs, or mentoring programs. A final example is for students to get hands-on experience in a job they may someday pursue, such as teaching a mini-lesson they design in an elementary classroom.
We currently cover the following Norfolk-area school district: King Philip Regional School District.

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 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: Dual Degrees in Education
Education provides an opportunity for students to earn dual degrees and have some flexibility in their career choices. First of all, anyone who pursues secondary education will have two degrees: one in education and the other in the content area he/she chooses to specialize in. This gives the individual multiple career options. For instance, a secondary history major can teach history or become a historian. Another popular dual degree in education is the elementary-early childhood combination. Those who would like to teach at the elementary level and also enjoy working with infants, toddlers, and very young children can pursue this dual degree. This gives them the opportunity to work and teach in daycares, preschools, and early childhood centers, which is important with the lack of teaching jobs that exists in parts of the U.S. Those who pursue dual degrees will have to be committed to earning extra credits and putting in more time—possibly having to attend a summer session—but it will be worth it with the extra flexibility they will gain.
