Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Somerville District Curriculum
One major focus of the schools is the cross-curricular literacy abilities of all students. The Literacy Plan has taken a holistic approach to improve student learning and assessment scores. All teachers across the curriculum are committed to emphasize literacy standards and improving literacy scores. Writing across the curriculum means that writing is emphasized in all courses. Students are expected to learn how to write for different purposes such as providing information (expository writing) or trying to be persuasive. In all types of writing, students are taught the steps to take an idea through the stages of the writing process until a piece of writing is edited and revised.
Students enhance their writing skills in every class including elective classes. Allowing students to write different genres in different subject areas diversifies their writing skills. Students also enhance their writing skills by repetitive use of the writing skill throughout the school day. Learners also realize and identify the usefulness of writing in a variety of career fields.

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: Setting Goals
Some students and parents are satisfied with achieving the bare minimum in their academic goals. As long as they graduate, they feel that the future is set. However, those who want to reach higher, set larger goals, and achieve greater rewards in life, are those who go the extra mile. They are never satisfied with “good enough.” These students are the ones that win the awards, score highest on college entrance exams, and gain valuable scholarships to aid in future plans. Parents can help by encouraging success and providing the necessary tools and tutors that give students that winning edge. Teaching students to set goals and manage the process of achieving them is a crucial lesson of childhood. Goals should be presented as achievable accomplishments so that children can know what it is like to set a goal and reach it. That will help them later in life set larger goals and work through the steps to get there.
