Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Clarkstown District Curriculum
The Clarkstown Central School District’s curriculum is based on New York’s learning standards. Instruction in English Language Arts and math is guided by the New York State P-12 Common Core Learning Standards. Instruction in other subject areas such as social studies and science is guided by the New York State Learning Standards. The standards that guide math education are based on foundational mathematics skills such as algebraic thinking, creating and collecting data, and numeration.
The standards that guide English Language Arts education in the Clarkstown Central School District put the reader first. Students learn that reading is a way to collect information, but they also learn that reading is a way to interact with the world around them. Students learn this from reading important works of fiction written by a wide range of authors and crossing cultural boundaries, and they also learn it by reading widely in non-fiction.

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: At, Above, Below
When it comes to grades, benchmarks, and progress it is easy to get bogged down in numbers. The is a number that will tell a person how a student’s skills in a specific subject compare to other students’ skills, compare to past students’ skills, or compare to where said student’s skills should be according to a complicated web of unique data. Undoubtedly, this approach has many useful applications. However, when education talk turns to numbers, living, breathing students often get overlooked. It is important to remember that students are more than numbers and past performances. A student’s reading or math skill levels change according to his or her mood and as a result of outside pressures. Let’s try to remember this when we sit down with students. Let’s try to figure out who they are before we assign them a bunch of numbers that will determine where they go in the future.
