Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Watertown District Curriculum
The Math curriculum oversees major areas of learning like algebra, geometry and quantitative data analysis. In algebra, the students are required to utilize and identify mathematical properties, such as the associative, communicative, distributive, and identity, find the values of a variable in an algebraic expression, translate words into mathematical equations and inequalities, use inverse operations to solve integers, use coordinates, graphs, and quadrants, and solve complex algebraic problems. They also are required to use graphs, tables, and models within multi-step problems, and use ratios in problem solving.
In Reading, the students are exposed to reading novels of choice and doing a great deal of reflective writing. Reading, reflection upon the reading through discussions and writing, oral language presentations, as well as learning the conventions of grammar and structure assist the students in becoming critical thinkers. These same skills are applied to student writing, which is emphasized across the curriculum.

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.

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: The Role of the Middle School Mathematics Teacher
The middle school math teacher has a large amount of responsibilities in order to enhance the students’ critical thinking skills and discovery. The upper-level math that they are being taught relies on the solid foundation that they received in the primary grades, and the teachers are facilitating that development and knowledge by pushing the students to grasp the more difficult algebraic concepts. The middle school mathematics teacher uses technology and differentiated instruction to help students succeed in math.
