Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Glens Falls District Curriculum
At the elementary school level, students learning Language Arts begin by learning how to read, write, listen and speak in the English language. These are broken out into two strands - the skills strand which is learning how to read and write and the listening, learning and speaking strands where students learn from listening to read aloud books to acquire vocabulary, and knowledge and then discuss what they have listened to. Later, the focus is also on literacy, critical analysis and being able to write both creative writing and expository writing.
In Mathematics, students at all grade levels focus on becoming mathematically literate and learn to use math in everyday activities. Computational skills, algebra and geometry are studied in elementary school, middle school and high school. The aim is to study fewer mathematical topics but to provide in depth mastery of the studied topics. In high school, students also prepare for the five Regents exams that students must pass to receive a Regents diploma.

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: Carolina Coastal Science
The Carolina Coastal Science website for kids is specifically designed to teach children in Elementary, and Middle School about science in coastal regions. On the website kids can look at the how the coast is different in each region of the Carolina Coast. There are questions on how to handle different topics such as whether to relocate a lighthouse and what to do about a resort that is falling into the sea. Students can go through these inquiries step by step and analyze different answers to the projects. There is also a Carolina Coastal Photojournal which contains QuickTime movies.
