Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Tewksbury District Curriculum
It has established a set of core values that help drive the mission and everything else that is done in the district. The mission of literacy instruction in the Tewksbury district is to provide all students with the literacy skills they need for success in the 21st century. It has established the district-wide goal of 95 percent of its students reading at or above grade level by the year 2017. There is also a “literacy toolbox” used which consists of word lists, a literacy checklist, “keys to literacy” templates, and six traits of writing - ideas, organization, voice, word choice, sentence fluency, and conventions.
The checklist contains the top 10 English language arts Common Core Standards for each grade level. These standards were turned into ten objectives for each grade level (“students should be able to….”). The district uses Pearson’s Reading Level indicator, assessing students in grades K-8 twice a year. Additionally, the DIBELS assessment is conducted for students in the primary grades, while Story Town Benchmarking is used during the elementary grades.

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: Educational Jargon: Ability Grouping
Ability grouping is exactly what it sounds like. It refers to grouping students by their ability level in different content areas—especially math and reading. Students’ “abilities” are often determined from their scores on standardized assessments. The goal of the No Child Left Behind Act is for all students to reach proficiency in math and reading, so those who are not proficient in these subjects may be grouped together. Additionally, there are many other assessments—particularly in reading—that can portray students’ abilities. By the upper elementary grades, most classrooms contain some level of ability grouping. Some schools build entire classes based on students’ levels in reading and math. Other schools have heterogeneous classrooms but often form reading groups based on students’ abilities. It may seem easier for teachers to instruct students who are all on a similar level, but there is some controversy over ability grouping. Students usually figure out they are in the “low” group and lack confidence.
