Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Waltham District Curriculum
Waltham has implemented the Common Core Standards Initiative. The resources used in the initiative are research based tools. The resources are: ESE Resources, Diving Deeper: Implementing 2011 Massachusetts Curriculum Framework for Math, Diving Deeper: Implementing 2011 Massachusetts Curriculum Framework for English Language Arts and Literacy, and Common Core Standards Implementation Workbook. These guide the instructional planning for grade- or subject-specific teaching and learning.
The district is also using a Transition Assessment Plan and 4 Draft Model Curriculum Unit. Implementation of the 4 Draft Model has included various educators throughout the state of Massachusetts so that best practices are achieved in different subjects. Educators redesigned the Math and Language Arts standards to implement more rigorous expectations. As a result of the 4 Draft Model, students will be expected to perform and be assessed at a higher level.

Waltham District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Waltham Public School adopted City Wide Learning Standards that are aligned to the Massachusetts Curriculum Framework. The framework is also aligned with the 21st Century Skills expectations for technology and communication learning. Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessments are given in each school to assess the academic progress of students in core subject areas, to ensure that they are achieving each standard of learning, and to determine that classes and grade levels are being taught effectively.
We currently cover the following Waltham-area school district: Waltham Public Schools.

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: What to Do About Summertime..?
There is much debate about the amount of learning that is lost during the Summer. Oftentimes, many students lose significant academic gains achieved during the school year. Many of those students are at-risk or struggling learners. Summer programs would help these students retain information and remain competitive with their peers during the school year. Parents should continue to challenge their children academically during the summer months. The best way to achieve this is through summer programs provided through school, local community or other alternative programs.
