    Is this natural English?

    Hello
    I've constructed some sentences of my own. Please check if I've used the words wrong!
    Thanks in advance.
    Here we go:

    A student's development is carefully monitored by his teachers and parents.

    The doctor often monitors the development of the cancer in the patient's part of body and He's trying his bet to stop it.

    The area where the crime took place is highly supervised by the police.

    A:Can we go out for a walk?. B:I'm sorry I'm afraid I can't because I'm shattered so I need to rest!! what about tomorrow?!(means very tired)

    Sadly enough, there has been a significant decline in the results of the students this year. This can be ascribed to the students' participation in many social activities.

    He's a proficient young man. He manages well his job.

    You seem to be tired, you need to unwind.

    To solve your problems, you need first to indicate their reasons.(I think identify is better
    )
    Concentration means not getting sidetracked.

    What are the drawbacks of living abroad?(disadvantages

    The area where the crime took place is highly supervised by the police. I think "monitored" or "patrolled" might be better, but it is ok.

    .

    Some minor alterations, but your use of the words is fine on the whole.
