Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Kingston District Curriculum
In Math, the coursework from elementary through high school is focused on learning basic computational skills, measurement, algebra, geometry, probability, and statistics. The topics are introduced in the early grades and focused upon more deeply as individual courses in high school. The goal is to have students who are mathematically literate and know when and how to use their math and logic skills in real world applications.
In English and Language Arts, the focus is on developing a love of reading that will turn into a desire for lifelong learning. The essentials of reading, writing, listening, speaking and being able to demonstrate control of the language are taught at every educational level. Students in elementary school begin with phonics and other language tools and learn to critically analyze their reading by asking and answering questions. This ability to analyze text and to both write and talk about reading material is a skill that is focused on up through high school.

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.
