Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Hollis District Curriculum
In the subject of English Language Arts, the focus of instruction is to help students construct meaning in authentic situations and for purposes that are personally relevant and meaningful. The students acquire skills and strategies necessary to develop and sustain their abilities to become lifelong readers, writers, speakers and listeners. Teachers use a process-oriented, research-based approach to balanced literacy.
An emphasis across the district is placed on writing skills. At all grade levels, students are expected to demonstrate those writing skills specific and appropriate to the grade level. Teachers assess students on the basis of a “Six Traits of Writing” scoring guide. Student writing criteria and benchmarks are grouped into kindergarten – Grade 2, Grade 3 – Grade 6, Grade 7 – 9 and Grade 10 – 12. Certified specialists are responsible for educating students in the areas of vocal/instrumental music, art, physical education, gifted programming and special education.

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: Writing Assessments
As students progress through elementary, middle and high school they are expected to demonstrate specific writing skills at each grade level. The criteria and benchmarks will vary as students’ writing skills become more developed and specific to the writing style. There are, however, specific skills across all K-12 grades that teachers instruct and assess. Students will be expected to demonstrate the following within their writing: ideas and content, organization, voice, word choice, fluency and conventions. Even in kindergarten, students will be assessed on how easy to read their writing is, whether their sentence structure makes sense, the tone of the writing (whether there is emotion) and if the writing has a point or main idea. At any grade level, students learn and practice these skills regularly in all subject areas. Pay attention to your child’s writing and development of these skills. Search for areas that may need improvement. Work with your child on those areas so that they better understand what each means and how they can make their writing clearer.
