Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Pittsfield District Curriculum
Pittsfield’s Curriculum Department works to align instruction and assessment with a combination of Common Core and state standards. The department emphasizes how curriculum, instruction, and assessment relate to and inform one another in a continuous cyclical process. The standards that are implemented are designed to prepare students for future success in college and the workforce.
The English language arts standards are taught with overlap through each grade level and necessitate that students read both fictional and informational texts at a high level. Through reading, writing, speaking, listening, and using language, students should be able to perform various tasks and acquire many skills. The district has an early literacy plan that outlines how schools, the community, and parents can work in conjunction to promote reading skills in very young children, including reading to them, taking them to the library to check out books frequently, providing them with many educational and imaginative toys and activities.

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 to Expect in College Education Programs
Many young people today are choosing to become educators, but before deciding to pursue this route, they should understand that typical undergraduate education programs at universities are much different than most educational settings. In terms of what happens in the university classrooms, education professors generally do not lecture much, and students will partake in more hands-on activities and work with classmates. There will be fewer written tests—I never had a final exam in an education course—and more writing and projects. Students will write many, many lesson plans and will probably have to teach a few lessons in front of their peers. In the first two years, they will receive more generalized education courses, but by their junior year, the classes will be focused toward specific majors. Elementary candidates will likely have literacy and math blocks, while, say, an English education major will take several English courses.
