Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Guilderland District Curriculum
Guilderland’s English Language Arts curriculum seeks to create students who are prepared to enter a rapidly changing world. Students learn traditional reading and writing skills from the earliest grades. They also learn how to perform research, critique the texts they read, understand multiple points of view, distinguish bad information from good information, and communicate clearly.
Rather than learning a little bit about a wide variety of mathematics concepts, Guilderland’s math students learn a lot about most important mathematics concepts. From the earliest grades students begin developing the abilities to engage in algebraic thinking, solve problems with geometry, and grasp concrete and abstract ideas. Students further develop these quantitative reasoning skills as the move from grade-to-grade, and thus are capable of using mathematics at college- and career-ready levels by the time they leave high school.

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: Spending Time at Your Child's School
There is an element of taking part in a child’s education parents often overlook: having lunch together. With work, homework, and family commitments it can be hard for a person to be present at his or her child’s school as he or she would like to be. The easiest way to be present is to stop by during lunch with your child and engage socially. This isn’t to be overbearing and doesn’t have to be done any more frequently than the child wishes; but stopping in, saying hi, and having a look around can provide a great deal of context to talking about school. Stopping by at lunch can give a parent an inside view of the school. From a cafeteria table he or she can learn about the other students, see how is child is interacting with them, and get an idea of what the school is like during a normal day. That’s the kind of useful information that a parent cannot get from a child who answers “Good,” and then drifts off in space when asked about his or her day.
