Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Dunkirk District Curriculum
In Mathematics, the instituting of Common Core means that students will focus on fewer math topics while placing an intense concentration on learning the core of mathematics such as whole numbers, addition and subtraction, multiplication and division, fractions, equations, mathematical expressions, statistics, algebra and geometry. Research has shown that if students understand the basics of math they will be able to use their skills to be successful with higher math.
In English and Language Arts, there is also a focus on learning to read, write, listen and speak fluently in the English language. The core mastery of language arts skills are reinforced across all academic coursework. Writing is a major focus, and students are expected to learn ways to communicate their ideas to a variety of audience types. The Common Core Curriculum is based on providing an education that will be most helpful in preparing students for college and career.

Dunkirk District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Like all public schools in the State of New York, the Dunkirk City School District is in the process of adopting the Common Core Curriculum which was approved as the state curriculum by the New York State Board of Regents. Teachers within the district have been ‘Mapping to the Core’ or facilitating the process of making sure that the Core Curriculum is understood and followed. Participation in physical education and athletics are encouraged as classes and as extracurricular activities at Dunkirk schools as the district finds that sports teach students the importance of teamwork, self discipline, competitiveness and sportsmanship.
We currently cover the following Dunkirk-area school district: Dunkirk City School District.

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.
