Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Irondequoit District Curriculum
The Language Arts curriculum consists of standard based explicit instruction in reading, writing, speaking, listening and critical thinking skills. The Math program’s goal is to provide students with the necessary skills and language to be successful in an increasingly technological world. The program provides a foundation in math that includes content knowledge and process skills. The program is student centered and differentiated instruction is provided to meet the needs of a diverse group of learners.
In the elementary schools, computers are used to reinforce classroom learning in English, Language Arts, Math, Social Studies and Science. At the intermediate level, students learn to use spreadsheets, word processing, presentation software, digital cameras and scanners for curriculum related projects. High schools use a wide variety of digital resources to conduct research in various subject areas. Pre-engineering and mechanical drawing classes allow student to use their technology skills in real world applications.

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.
