Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Batavia District Curriculum
In English Language Arts, students become critical readers and persuasive writers by reading nonfiction and writing analytic essays in order to develop the ability to gather information and use evidence to support their claims while also expanding their vocabularies. They are taught to write using a process that includes brainstorming and outlining, writing, revising and editing, and presenting their work. With the increased use of technology, the presentation phase has allowed students more options to learn with and from.
In Mathematics, the curriculum emphasizes a smaller number of topics which are explored in depth, rather than a broad range of skimmed topics. The curriculum begins with basic, key ideas like numbers and order of operation, so students gain mastery of the foundations of mathematics before progressing to more advanced concepts in high school. Students are given opportunities to apply their math knowledge to real-world situations and challenges.

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: College Resumes
Many students are lost when it comes to creating a college resume because they don’t have very many, or any, work experiences, but it’s important to remember the purpose of a college resume, which is to create an easy to access fact sheet containing an applicant’s extra-curricular activities, as well as work and volunteer experiences. Resumes can be formatted in different ways, but the purpose is readability. The resume should be one page long and no longer. It should feature the applicant’s name, address and contact info, and GPA at the top, typically centered. The activities should be grouped according to major themes such as Work Experience, Volunteer Opportunities, Leadership, etc. A good rule of thumb is to only include activities that demonstrate more than one positive element or quality of the applicant. So sports are fine, but if space is an issue, only include sports that have played long-term, or that led to honors or leadership.
