Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Elmont District Curriculum
Elmont also has a world languages curriculum that prepares students to be effective communicators in a language other than English. There is a primary focus on speaking and listening skills as they pertain to the development of language skills. Students learn basic elements of a second language, including common words, phrases, and terminology. These skills are practiced in a variety of settings, including in one-on-one conversations with other students and presentations to classmates. Students acquire the ability to use the context of their conversations to derive meanings of unfamiliar words.
Students in Elmont learn valuable lessons with regard to physical education. Personal health and fitness is a central component of the P.E. curriculum. In this strand, children develop a capacity for basic motor skills. These include the gross motor skills necessary to run, jump, and play, as well as fine motor skills necessary to manipulate sports equipment and demonstrate body control when balancing. Physical fitness skills are developed such that students have the capacity to undertake physical activities without injury.

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: Why Kids Need Sports
While the focus of K-12 education should be on acquiring the academic skills, knowledge, and tools required for success in college and career, sports offer many opportunities for learning and offer benefits for students as well. Being a member of a sports team facilitates the development of critical communication and collaboration skills necessary for most careers. With goal-setting an inherent aspect of being an athlete, students must also learn how to set attainable goals and work hard to reach them. Athletes must learn to manage their time wisely as well. This is particularly important for student-athletes who have many demands on their time, but who must also put in the appropriate time and effort in order to be successful in the classroom and on the field. Sports are also a great way to boost a child’s self-esteem. Studies show that the slow but steady improvement in skills over the course of an athletic season helps students feel a sense of accomplishment and gain confidence.
