Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Elmira District Curriculum
At the elementary level, in English and Language Arts, the focus is on developing reading, writing, listening, and speaking skills that allow students to have command of the English language. The ability to critically analyze reading material is also stressed so that students ask and answer complex questions about their reading. Students are expected to be able to provide detailed analyses of the material and to write compositions and reports that are well documented.
In Math, students in elementary school learn the basics of counting and numbers, basic arithmetic and mathematical operations. They also are presented with simple algebraic and geometric thinking. Students continue with their studies in algebra and geometry and also learn the basics of probability and statistics. Coursework in Math stresses the ability to use abstract reasoning, to solve complex math problems using the correct mathematical tools and logic.

- Class Efforts - Members of the Amy Cicora’s Special Education class at Pine City Elementary School were able to contribute to a family that had lost a home to a recent fire by trying hard in school and by showing good behavior. When the students did well, they were able to earn money which was donated by a BOCES social worker to give to a Student Aide, who had recently lost her home. The experience taught the students how to count, and contributed to self esteem as they were able to make a difference in someone else’s life.
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.
