Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Queens District Curriculum
The curriculum in Math begins with foundational knowledge in number operations, measurement and quantities, and ways of understanding the relationship between pieces of data such as with probabilities. In high school, the focus is on concepts of algebra, geometry, and data analysis which prepares students for their secondary and post-secondary learning in all math-related subjects. The curriculum designed secondary math courses to fall into either theoretical or practical modes from which students may choose.
The English Language Arts curriculum focuses on critical reading of both fiction and non-fiction, language development, speaking and listening, and writing in a variety of formats. Many schools use the Readers and Writers Workshop approach which is an interactive way of developing literacy skills. Students are expected to write reflective and analytic responses, persuasive essays, and technical writing. These opportunities for thinking and expressing oneself critically brings about the analytic and evaluative thinking skills which students use in all subjects.

Queens District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The South Shore Regional School Board uses the provincial curriculum. The curriculum starts out by introducing students to key topics in each subject and then deepening and expanding the focus based on that foundation. In English, students learn the fundamentals of reading and writing which allows them to begin understanding themes and the craft of writing. In Math, students learn how to conduct precise measurements, understand and evaluate data, and solve problems using a variety of methods. In Science, students are given the chance to be young scientists and are taught the methods of investigation alongside content in earth and life science or energy and matter.
We currently cover the following Queens-area school district: South Shore Regional School Board.

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: Reading Miscues: Hesitation and Non-Response
When assessing students’ reading—particularly when using the Developmental Reading Assessment (DRA)—teachers are often tasked with keeping a running record of not only the errors students make while reading aloud but the types of errors. These reading errors are called miscues. The process of identifying the errors and keeping a running record is called miscue analysis. Sometimes, students will hesitate or pause in the middle of reading or not even attempt to try to pronounce an unknown word. If there is an extended pause in the middle of a sentence, this may sometimes be considered a miscue. Hesitations may indicate weak visual tracking, or students may simply take long pauses before difficult words. Students who do not try to sound out words may have weak decoding and word attack skills and rely mostly on their ability to recognize sight words. They also are not using context clues to try to figure out the word. Students who pause or do not respond may lack confidence in their reading abilities.
