Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Cortlandt District Curriculum
Cortlandt’s Math curriculum focuses on a few central concepts that students begin mastering in the early grades and continue to refine and develop as they move up to the higher grades. Students learn to understand how math problems function. They learn important problem-solving skills. They develop the ability to think abstractly and communicate mathematics concepts clearly. This curriculum encourages students to take the skills that they develop out of the classroom and into the real world.
Cortlandt’s English Language Arts curriculum encourages students to read and research widely in order to get the best and most useful information from print and digital sources. Students are expected develop their reading, writing, speaking, listening and language skills from the earliest grades. Students are not encouraged to put these skill to use only in English Language Arts classrooms. Rather, they are expected to apply the skills to their studies in subject areas such as history, sciences, and technology.

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: Choosing Electives
Choosing the right elective can be a problem for some students. Imagine going from having one teacher and having all your classes determined for you to having a new teacher for every class and having to choose a class yourself. It’s a lot of pressure for a kid, especially a kid whose parents treat electives like career training. Electives should be pressure-free. They should be a chance for students to explore new and interesting areas without major consequences. The decision to take electives should be based mostly on academic and personal interests, but also some social reasons may cause a student to take a particular elective. Parents who encourage students to choose an elective that will put them on a path towards a career in music, fashion, or business mean well, but might be thinking too far ahead. Kids should be allowed explore any area that intrigues them, whether it will be useful in the future or not.
