Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Camillus District Curriculum
Camillus’ math curriculum seeks to develop in students a foundational knowledge of core mathematics concepts. From the earliest grades students learn numeration, problem solving, abstract reasoning, and important communication skills. For instance, students learn to count backwards from 20, count by 10’s, read, write and compare numbers up to 100, the value of pennies, measurement using standard tools, the value of nickels and dimes, and how to add and subtract one digit numbers. They go on to further develop these skills and learn to apply them to real-world situations as the move up through future grades.
Camillus’ English Language Arts curriculum requires students at all grade-levels to be capable of reading a wide variety of fiction and non-fiction tests. Students not only read such texts, but learn how to research, discuss, and critique those texts. Students learn how to apply these skill in Language Arts classrooms, and then go on to apply the skills in all other subjects.

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: Testing Blues
Any parent who has had a child in elementary school in the past 15 years is familiar with the first test jitters. These are the fears felt by young students who, just as they are becoming confident in their reading, writing, and math skills, find out they have a really IMPORTANT test to take. Of course, parents understand that the outcome of standardized tests are more important to schools and school funding than they are to students, but that’s not easy to explain to a third grader. The best thing a parent can do when it comes to first test jitters is stay calm. Nervousness can be contagious. If your child sees that you’re worried about him or her being worried, he or she will start to think that the test is a bigger deal than it actually is. Also, remind your child that he or she is being tested on information that he or she already knows. This will help calm your child’s fears about being tested on information that he or she does not know.
