Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Cohoes District Curriculum
The curriculum prepares students to pass the required five New York State Board of Regents exams in English, U.S. History, Mathematics, Global History and Science in order to receive a Regents diploma. The District is dedicated to providing an educational experience that prepares students for the world of current technology in all fields. At the Elementary School level, students follow an award winning curriculum in Science called the ‘Science and Technology for Children’ which emphasizes hands on learning.
In English and Language Arts, elementary school students learn to read using an integrated guided reading program from Kindergarten through second grade and a literature based reading program for grades three through five. A team approach to teaching is used at the middle school level, where students focus on learning Algebra, Geometry, Interdisciplinary Science and Language Arts. At the high school level, students prepare for their Regents exams, and have the opportunity to take high school courses that offer college credit.

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: Resources for Learning about Science
Bats are fascinating creatures that inspire both fear and curiosity. To help children learn about what bats do for the environment they can visit the Adventure of Echo the Bat website, which is sponsored by NASA. At the website, students will be able to follow Echo the bat as he travels to Arizona where he hibernates in the winter. The site can also be used by teachers and parents providing homeschooling as a teacher’s guide accompanies the site.
