Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Binghamton District Curriculum
All students at New York State public schools follow the precepts of the Common Core Curriculum Framework which is being adopted in the United States as a way of providing standardized educational goals. Students are required to pass five Regents exams in English, Global History, U.S. History, Science and Math. For students interested in an Advanced Regents Diploma, they need to take Regents exams in two additional courses in Math and Science and study a foreign language.
The Binghamton City School District was the third public school in the State of New York to implement an International Baccalaureate Diploma program which is geared to providing an educational experience that is international in scope and is open to qualified students ages 16 and 19. The International Baccalaureate Organization has recently offered Binghamton City School District the unique opportunity to pilot an IB Careers Certificate Program, of which there are only two in the world.

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.
