Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Brentwood District Curriculum
The Standards for Mathematical Practice involve a balanced approach of both procedure and understanding and apply to all grade levels from PK-12. The standards include persevering in solving problems, reasoning both quantitatively and abstractly, constructing arguments and critiquing the reasoning of others, modeling with math, and strategically using appropriate math tools. In order for students to be able to acquire these skills, they need to have a solid understanding of the mathematical concepts they learn and not rely too heavily on the procedures.
The curriculum for Mathematics, Science, and Technology includes analysis and scientific inquiry, effective use of information technology systems, the application of scientific concepts, the use of technology to solve human problems, the interconnectedness between the three disciplines, and the solving of real-world problems involving the three disciplines. The standards for social studies revolve around the following topics: U.S. and New York history; world history; geography; economics; and civics, citizenship, and government. Each of the standards for each content area is broken down further by grade level.

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: Tips for the ACT and SAT
Getting a good score on the reading portion of the SAT or ACT is often achieved through the careful use of strategies. These strategies may differ for each type of question, but many can be used throughout the test. For many, sentence completion questions take less time to answer than those that are included with a reading passage. Therefore, it can be helpful is to answer those questions first. Sentence completion questions also tend to increase in difficulty as you progress and the last few questions may contain more words that you don’t know. Increasing your vocabulary before the test may help you answer more questions correctly. Also, if there are two or three blanks in a sentence, look at one blank’s answer choices and see if there is an answer that relates to it in the other blank’s answer choices.
