Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Buffalo District Curriculum
The Language Arts curriculum uses The Common Core Standards in order to prepare high school students for college and career goals, and prepares elementary and middle schoolers for their next steps by focusing on phonic awareness, decoding and vocabulary development skills, and reading comprehension strategies. In Social Studies, students evaluate the roles of citizens in a democracy, identifying important duties such as the right to vote. The historical foundations of our government are also explored. They examine the Magna Carta and English Bill of Rights as documents that influenced our nation’s Constitution.
The Math curriculum, as described by state core curricula, also details yearly standards centering on conceptual understanding, procedural fluency, strategic competence, adaptive reasoning, and productive disposition. The Science curriculum provides a framework for grade-appropriate learning as well, with a particular focus on a science-literacy connection. These Science courses are broken into Elementary and Intermediate Science, Living Environment, Earth Science, Chemistry, and Physics and emphasize both content knowledge and procedural abilities.

Buffalo Area District Curriculum We Follow
The curriculum in Buffalo frames the learning in the academic subjects by laying out the grade-level expectations and learning objectives for all content areas. The curriculum which is used is meant to answer four essential questions: What do we want a student to know and be able to do? How will we know if the student learned it? What will we do if the student hasn’t learned it? What will we do if they have? Students demonstrate their abilities through class work, independent projects, collaborative work, and standardized assessments. These help educators recognize the strengths and weaknesses of each student and target instruction accordingly.
We currently cover the following Albany-area school district: Buffalo Public 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: Avoiding Senioritis
The last year of high school can be difficult, especially once winter break hits. Everyone is ready for graduation! But beware: You’re not done yet. The grades still count, and the teachers will continue to expect your best work. To keep “senior-itis” at bay, focus on your goals after high school. Even if you haven’t chosen a college or major yet, use the last semester of your senior year to prepare. What skills will you need? What areas of your writing need improvement? Is there still a question you wish you could ask one of your teachers? Your high school teachers have more time for you than your college professors will, so take advantage of their knowledge while you can. Oh—but make sure to save some time for fun!
