Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Horseheads District Curriculum
Horseheads schools’ English Language Arts curriculum develops students ability to read and comprehend a wide variety of fiction and non-fiction texts. By middle school, standards include analyzing the structure of narratives by reading and writing short stories, poems, nonfiction and journal entries. Once students develop the skill of reading comprehension, they go on to learn supplementary literary skills such as written and verbal communication, research, and textual criticism.
The math curriculum begins developing students understanding of core mathematics concepts in the earliest grades. As young learners move up through subsequent grades they learn to apply core concepts such as pattern recognition, and abstract thinking in order to solve. Students learn skills such as describing sets of numerical data, being able to analyze quantitative information, understanding where a point is located on a coordinate plane, and learning to perform different spatial analyses.

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.

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: Transitioning Through the Grades
As children move up through different grades they find that more is expected of them. The discover that being part of a class requires participation that goes beyond drawing quietly and listening to the teacher read. This makes students nervous. They worry about saying a word incorrectly while reading out loud in class and having their classmates and teachers discuss their artwork in front of them. These things can be nerve-wracking, but they are an important part of developing the skills necessary to be successful in college and careers. As a parent, you should take the opportunity to prepare your child for classroom participation before it is required of him or her. You can do this by asking your child to read out loud at home, and by asking him or hear questions about he reading. You can also discuss the pictures you child draws with him or her. By making such activities a part of life at home you’ll prepare you child to take part in similar activities at school.
