Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Jamestown District Curriculum
The district has adopted the New York State Common Core Learning Standards for use in all regular school programs. In English and Language Arts students are focused on the basic principles of Common Core which stresses reading, writing, listening, speaking and being able to demonstrate a command of the English language.Students learn the basics of critical analysis of reading material, a skill they will add to all through their education.
In Math, the essence of the Common Core curriculum is on learning the fundamentals of math skills so that students can utilize the skills with confidence. To achieve this, the coursework has been honed down so that there is less to learn but what is learned is learned with fluency. Students learn the basics of mathematical computation and have an introduction to the basics of algebra and geometry. They also learn about computational tools and basic statistics.

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.
