Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Topsfield District Curriculum
The Language Arts curriculum lays out standards in reading, writing and communicating that develop strong language skills and the ability to read, write and speak critically. Critical reading skills such as recognizing intent and bias, asking questions about the text, and formulating one's own opinion are much emphasized. In writing, students are asked to write for various purposes such as to analyze a text, persuade an audience, explain a concept, or for creative purposes. They are expected to take a process approach to writing and also incorporate that way of approaching an assignment to their presentations.
The steps involved in presentations are planning what needs to be done and how the information will be found (the beginning), doing the actual research and using the information (the middle), and reviewing the finished product to make sure the student did everything he or she was supposed to (the end). Students are taught how to use library resources, and the proper ways to footnote and cite references. There will be times throughout their education when these skills will be needed to give presentations in all of their subjects.

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: Liquid Volume and Mass
Third graders will acquire an early learning of measurements of liquid volume and mass. They will be exposed to measurements of both the metric system and customary system (used in the U.S.). They may be given specific examples of items and be asked which unit of measurement it would make sense to measure that object with. For example, if measuring the amount of water in a bowl, it may be best to use cups—a unit of liquid volume. When finding the mass of a large piece of furniture, it would make most sense to measure it in pounds. Students must understand the amounts different units take up. For example, gallons represent a greater amount of liquids than pints, cups, and quarts. They should have an understanding of what everyday items and animals may weigh; for instance, a house cat might weigh about 12 pounds. They also should know how different measurements are represented in units; for example, volume is measured in cubic units.
