Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Brooklyn District Curriculum
Brooklyn’s middle school math curriculum culminates in the eighth grade with a comprehensive study of functions, expressions and equations, geometry, statistics, and probability. Students learn how to define functions, as well as evaluate and compare them. Learners also develop the ability to utilize functions to model relationships between quantities. An understanding of radicals and integer exponents is also gained, and students begin working with various equations as well. Students obtain the skills to solve both singular and pairs of simultaneous linear equations.
Part of the English language arts curriculum is the acquisition of effective speaking and listening skills. Elementary-aged students acquire these skills by actively participating in collaborative discussions with their peers. This involves learning the rules of conversation, such as how to take turns, how to ask follow up questions, and how to confirm one’s understanding through verbal and nonverbal cues. Students identify various forms of questions, including those to seek help, clarify understanding, or get additional information.

Brooklyn District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Brooklyn City Schools is a small district with just one elementary school, one middle school, and one high school. The small size of the district means that each student receives the individualized attention that he or she needs in order to reach his or her maximum potential. Teachers and staff members take a vested interest in each student’s unique interests, abilities, and needs, and devise programs that help each student prepare for a successful life in college or the workplace. At each grade level, students are held to high, yet achievable expectations.
We currently cover the following Brooklyn-area school district: Brooklyn City Schools.

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.

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: Arts Courses Make for More Well-Rounded Students
Visual and performing arts courses are essential for the development of students who possess a well-rounded set of knowledge and skills. Art students possess a greater capacity for creativity, persistence, and vision than their peers. The study of art has been shown to increase student achievement in a variety of other academic areas. Arts students display improved geometric reasoning and problem solving skills that benefit them in their math courses. Art leads to benefits in the areas of reading and writing as well. Studies show that children who participated in special arts programs performed better on reading assessments. What’s more, there is a positive correlation between the number of arts classes a student takes and their score on the ACT. In short, the more art studies a student undertakes, the better achievement they experience in the classroom and on standardized measures of mathematics and English.
