Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Fishkill District Curriculum
Fishkill schools’ English Language arts curriculum encourages students to develop the abilities to read closely and attentively beginning in the early grades. Following this curriculum, students go on to learn other important literacy skills such as listening, verbal communication, research, and textual analysis. They learn about literary devices used in literature and also see how these same devices – such as symbolism and foreshadowing – are also seen in media works. This helps students become more critical of the media they view.
Fishkill schools’ math curriculum encourages to learn core mathematics concepts in the earliest grades. Following this curriculum, students go on to further their understanding of these core concepts as they move up through subsequent grades. Students then learn to apply their mathematics knowledge to classroom and real world problems. This helps achieve the goal of the development of quantitative and logical reasoning skills that can be applied to any abstract problem.

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: Developing Literacy Skills
Literacy is the foundational learning skill. Students who are not literate or who have problems with literacy have a much harder time mastering new learning skills than students who have high literacy levels. That is why it is important to get students to develop literacy early. One way to get reluctant readers to develop their literacy skills is to reward them for reading. Some parents do not like the idea of rewarding a child for reading. They think that the child should read because he or she loves reading. It would be nice if it happened that way all the time, but it does not. Some children need incentive beyond “love of reading.” A parent who is dealing with a child who needs extra incentive should develop a reading reward system that is based on number of pages read or total time read. A child who sees a reward in his or her future is more likely to read, and a child who is more likely to read is more likely to develop important literacy skills.
