Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Albany District Curriculum
The Mathematics curriculum at Albany Public School is framed around working in small groups of students. This helps educators see if a student needs additional instruction. Students are also shown how mathematics is used in science and everyday life. They learn how to tell time, count change and complete equations from the most basic addition to the more complicated equation they will face in trigonometry or calculus. The curriculum that is developed for these students help them become problem-solvers as adults.
Science, in Albany Public Schools, is designed so that students have many hands-on activities. In elementary, the students are able to see the changes that frogs go through in their life as they adopt tadpoles in their classrooms. As the students progress they are given many more opportunities to use the scientific method. These students use microscopes, dissecting tools and other equipment so that the students are able to see the world through the eyes of a scientist.

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: How to Build Independence Through Tasks
From the time children are born, it is the natural tendency of parents to hover and help children with everything. Children have the need to feel independence. To assist in this there are various tasks that parents can allow children to do. Children can help with laundry. Depending on the age, there are different ways that they can help. Toddlers can be responsible for putting clothing in drawers or in laundry hampers. As they mature into preschool age children they also can match socks. Six-year old children can fold laundry, while children at the end of elementary, can be placed in charge of laundry. Children can also be given the responsibility for their own toys from the time they are toddlers. One more way to help children feel independent is to allow them to set their own bedtime when they are about twelve. Parents may need to decide at what time the television or computers are turned off, but this will only help the children when they set their bedtimes.
