Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Garden City District Curriculum
The science curriculum begins by introducing students to the principles of effective scientific inquiry. Students learn how to ask appropriate questions in order to gain a better understanding of the world in which they live. These questions form the basis for scientific research, and help students devise an understanding of the process of forming, testing, and accepting or rejecting a hypothesis. Various types of inquiry are explored, including direct observation and basic laboratory experiments. Students acquire the ability to record data, including their observations and specific measurements.
Garden City’s math curriculum is based on the guidelines of the Common Core State Standards. The geometry standards for high school students introduce them to the concept of congruence. As part of their studies, students experiment with plane transformations, prove geometric theorems, and make geometric constructions. Similarity is another concept introduced to students, in particular with theorems and similarity transformations. Students work with circles as well, identifying arc lengths and calculating area of circles.

Garden City District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Garden City Public Schools is responsible for the education of nearly 4,000 K-12 students in Garden City. The district includes three primary schools, two elementary schools, one middle school, and one high school. Each school’s staff members take pride in the educational programming they offer to their students. Their commitment to academic excellence is reflected in the fact that four of the district’s schools are National Blue Ribbon Award Winners. The middle school and high school have been additionally named as New York State Reward Schools. Students are able to achieve their potential in part because of the small class sizes that afford them increased contact time with teachers. With a wide variety of academic programs, including honors and AP classes, students have many opportunities to learn, explore, and grow.
We currently cover the following Garden City-area school district: Garden City Public Schools.

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: The Importance of Reading
Reading is a critical skill that students must master if they are to reach their fullest academic potential. Kids that read often have improved literacy skills because they are consistently engaged in the act of reading. Because of this, frequent readers have improved vocabularies, word comprehension, and understanding of proper grammar. Another benefit of reading is that frequent readers demonstrate a greater capacity for concentration. The effort involved in sitting quietly and focusing on a book requires far more self-control than it does to sit and watch TV. Reading is also a great way for kids to learn about the world in which they live, as well as societies and cultures that are much different from their own. In this regard, reading opens kids’ minds to different ways of thinking and living, and promotes increased empathy and understanding for others.
