Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Shelburne District Curriculum
There are four curricular plans that encompass the classes of the Shelburne Community School. The Integrated curriculum addresses literacy and technology. Literacy frameworks include exposing students to good literature and explicitly expressing the reading processes aloud, balanced with guided writing to learn specific techniques. The technology curriculum addresses not only how to use technology to supplement education and increase productivity, but also the social and ethical issues that are associated with technology.
The art, music, and world language classes are headed under the Culture curriculum. These classes are used to communicate with the world either through languages other than English or by artistic expression, increase appreciation of diversity and understanding of other cultures, and to connect with other academic disciplines and the world community. The fourth curricular plan is geared towards Wellness to build knowledge of body awareness and social behavior expectations.

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: Online Resources
There are tons of resources online stating all kinds of “facts” and “research”. How does one evaluate which sources are reliable and which ones are simply a matter of opinion? There are a few basic steps that can be taken to sift out untrustworthy sites. First, look for details on the website that state the author’s name and the date. If a site has no author or publisher stated and has a missing or old date, the information is probably outdated or unreliable. In this case, it would be better to look for a site with a more recent copyright and a more reliable publisher. Another red flag to an undependable site is a strong bias towards certain statements. What evidence does the author provide as support? How strong are the author’s credentials? By being critical, you can likely find solid resources online.
