Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Dryden District Curriculum
The expectations for Language Arts learning are not limited to reading and reading comprehension. Rather, they include other skills that can be applied to all subject areas, including skills such as researching texts, textual criticism, and communicating original ideas both verbally and in writing. Students are required to write opinion pieces about particular reading selections with proper evidence and citations. The writing portion of this curriculum includes the development of narrative, persuasive, and informative writing styles.
Students not only learn about operational ability, problem modeling, mathematic literacy, and quantitative reasoning, but they also learn how to apply these skills to solve problems that they encounter in classrooms and in the real world. The Common Core Math Standards also suggest ways in which to connect the subject to its many real world applications, including finance, technology and science.

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: Critical Thinking
Students who are capable of thinking critically are able to tell the difference between good information and bad information, figure out new ways to solve problems, and use their creativity to better their lives. Many school curricula and education standards mention critical thinking in passing, but few really present students with opportunities to develop their critical thinking skills. Schools and parents need to find new ways to foster critical thinking skills. They can require students to take part in simple role-playing games, or ask students to analyze books, films, and commercials. They encourage the creation of curricula that emphasize the development of critical thinking skills in all subject areas. Critical thinking is one of the most important skills that today’s students can possess. If they don’t learn how to think critically at home or school they will never learn how to do it.
