Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Norwell District Curriculum
The standards for English language arts include “be matched to appropriate texts” (kindergarten), “know and use strategies to read fluently…” (grade 1), “read and comprehend informational texts…” (grade 2), “use new vocabulary in conversations and writing” (grade 3), “write narratives to develop real or imagined experiences…” (grade 4), and “write opinion pieces and support point of view with reasons and information” (grade 5). During middle school, students will be called upon to provide analysis of the texts they read.
The high school English language arts curriculum has a reading strand that includes U.S. and world classics and requires that students are able to construct analytic meaning from the texts they read. It also introduces students to journalism, editorial writing, and other genres that help develop their academic writing skills. There is a strong emphasis on providing coherent support throughout essays. Students are taught the proper methods to use and reference literary and reference works, and learn how to incorporate others ideas into their own writing.

Norwell District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Norwell Public Schools slogan is “21st century schools for 21st century students.” Norwell Public Schools have adopted the Common Core Standards for use in English language arts and math. In addition to the other content areas being embedded into these standards, the district utilizes state frameworks and standards for social studies, science, and the arts. The district has developed “power standards” for each grade level and content area. The Common Core Standards are written in a way so that parents may understand them and define the critical understandings and skills students must gain by the end of the year in each subject.
We currently cover the following Norwell-area school district: Norwell Public Schools.

- Norwell Middle School Student Participates in Project 351 - A Norwell Middle School student sat with about 351 fellow eighth graders in Boston's Faneuil Hall, ready to get involved in her community. After hearing from the Massachusetts governor and Boston Marathon bombing survivors, the students of Project 351 broke off into groups to plan out their individual projects. The Norwell student went to a charter school, where she helped paint colorful murals on the walls in order to make the new school more inviting.
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: What Should My Senior Project Be?
Most high school seniors in the U.S. are required to complete some form of "senior project" as a culminating exit project. Schools vary in their requirements; for example, some may have students simply shadow professionals in a career they are interested in, while others may permit students to choose whatever topic they want (with approval, of course). Most of these projects are long-term and involve a presentation component. Students who have a lot of freedom to decide have many options, but it is most important that they choose something interesting to them and which they are passionate about. They may choose to partake in learning a new skill, such as learning a new language, cooking ethnic food, playing a musical instrument, etc. Similarly, they may build something new or invent something that can greatly help people. They may organize and conduct a community service project or event.
