Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Brookhaven District Curriculum
The Common Core Standards are a single set of clear standards utilized in all New York school districts and in forty five states across the country. These standards help provide today’s students with a high quality education that prepares them for success in college and careers. The English/Language Arts standards focus on reading, writing, speaking and listening. Based on the revised standards, students in the district will be required to read more challenging fiction and non-fiction text, and learn about the world through reading.
The revised math standards provide a more in-depth focus of fewer concepts. In the elementary grades, teachers will help students build a strong foundation, skills, and knowledge across grade levels in the areas of whole numbers, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, decimals and fractions. This foundation will helps students to use math facts easily, think fast and solve problems, really know and understand mathematical principals and use math in the real 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.

Chalk Talk: Talking to Kids About the News
The world we live in is connected around the clock through the use of TV, the internet, smart phones, and social media.The following are some suggestions for talking to children about disturbing news events: 1) Be honest when talking to children – there is no reason to go into more detail then your child is interested in. Children should feel safe after your conversation 2) Encourage children to discuss their fears openly and honestly. Older youth and teens may require a more detailed explanation of the events. Listen closely and help them cope with their fears. 3) Watch the news with your child 4) Turn off news stories that you feel may be inappropriate for your child to view. 5) Have frequent discussions with your children and other family members regarding current events. 6) Help your child put news stories in the proper perspective. Try to make youth understand that this may be an isolated event and that sometimes good can come from a disaster, such as a community joining together to collect supplies for victims of a natural disaster. 7) Ensure your child has access to magazines and newspapers created especially for youth and listens to public broadcasting and children’s news.
