Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Stoneham District Curriculum
Stoneham Public Schools provide curriculum brochures for grades K-5 that describe what students are expected to do and learn in each content area. The English language arts objectives are broken down into the categories of reading, writing, speaking and listening, and language, while the math standards are categorized by algebraic thinking, number and operations, measurement and data, and geometry. The district is dedicated to implementing current technology to enhance instruction and improve the teachers’ competency in incorporating technologies in their classes.
There is a dedicated webpage that includes information about software that the school has available, examples of student work, wiki and blog samples, information about online tools that foster creative and collaborative thinking, websites that assist educators in designing integrated lesson plans, technology tools that help with classroom management, a how-to on downloading videos, and various resources.

Stoneham District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Stoneham Public Schools consist of five schools and 2,650 students. The curriculum provides comprehensive learning objectives in each subject which teachers can deliver to their students as they see best. With the curricular goals mapped out, the teacher decides what resources are necessary for him/her to plan and carry out the lesson as well as the materials that the students need. Assessments, both formal and informal, are based off of the essential questions, objectives, and content that is taught.
We currently cover the following Stoneham-area school district: Stoneham Public Schools.

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: Common Core Standards
The adoption of the Common Core Standards has led to many shifts in the way literacy and math are taught and learned. First, there is a much greater emphasis on reading and understanding nonfiction texts in the elementary grades; in fact, half of the books read must be of the informational variety. Secondly, reading and writing mandate the use of textual evidence; students can no longer depend on their prior knowledge when writing or answering questions and need to be able to analyze selections, providing textual evidence. In math, the old way of teaching was for teachers to cover a great deal of topics in little detail or time; now, classes focus on fewer topics in greater depth. Also, there is an emphasis on making connections with regards to mathematical learning from grade to grade. Finally, the math standards are more focused and rigorous, as students need to have a conceptual understanding of math problems and concepts and are called on to apply math in context.
