Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Wappingers District Curriculum
Wappingers’ math curriculum is based on Common Core State Standards that are designed to develop in students a deep understanding of the concepts that serve as a basis for all mathematics knowledge. Students learn about numeration, abstract thinking, problem solving, and reasoning in early grades and further develop that knowledge as they move up grade-by grade.
Wappingers’ English Language Arts Curriculum is based on internationally benchmarked standards that guide the development of literacy skills that can be applied to all subject areas. Student not only read widely in various genre of fiction and non-fiction texts, but learn to research, critique, and clearly communicate to others their ideas about those texts in both discussion and written work. Technology is integrated into this, and all subjects, to assist students in learning, researching, and the creation and presentation of original work.

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: What Is a 'Flipped' Classroom
The “flipped” classroom is an education idea that has gained traction among some teachers in recent years. A flipped classroom is a classroom in which a teacher focuses less on teaching in the traditional manner and more on teaching students the critical thinking skills they need to sort through the information they find in the instructional and non-instructional texts that they encounter. Students spend class time working on projects and other hands-on activities that put their learning into action. Elements of class such as lectures are then prescribed for homework. The idea that guides this teaching method is that old modes of teaching students to acquire and hold onto knowledge are no longer useful now that student have the world’s knowledge at their fingertips at all times. Thus, instead of filling their minds with information, 21st century students need to know how to access information and sort the good from the bad.
