Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Carmel District Curriculum
Students in Carmel’s English Language arts classes encounter a wide variety of physical and digital fiction and non-fiction texts. Through working with such texts students learn to research, think critically, and discern useful information from information that is not useful. Student use these skills to engage with texts that builds knowledge and expand their understanding of the world.
Students in Carmel’s math classes learn to tackle real world problems and get real results. They do this by first gaining a deep understanding of core mathematics concepts and the rules that guide mathematics in books and in the world. Students begin developing this understanding in the earliest grades and build on it grade-by-grade until they have the mathematics knowledge they need to be successful in college and careers. Instruction in all other classes is based on the New York State Learning Standards that the state adopted in 1996.

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: Selective Discussion
Sometimes getting children to talk about their day at school can be like pulling teeth, and then other times it seems like children won’t stop talking bout their days. When listening to children talk about their day at school it is import to not only hear what they are saying, but to also hear what they are not saying. If a child consistently gushes about his or her great day, but only seems to be talking about one class there might be a problem. Think about what the child is not talking about and ask questions about that subject. This will help you better understand your child and make you aware of school-related problems that he or she might being trying to hide. By fostering discussion, and creating an environment that is accepting of the challenge’s which your child faces, your child will benefit immensely in terms of their conflict management skills and ability to relate with others in critical matters.
