Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Kiryas Joel District Curriculum
A major focus on the New York State Curriculum is literacy in all subject areas. Students are expected to be able to read fiction and non-fiction and to use different comprehension and analysis skills when reading each. Reading for knowledge is expected at an early juncture and students also learn how to take notes from what they are reading and put the thoughts of others into their own words. This is followed by writing assignments that require students to draw upon the text and critically reflect on or analyze its meaning.
Students also learn how to collect and organize information such that they can effectively summarize their readings in written form. As part of their analyses, students learn to incorporate information from various sources to develop a deeper connection between the source material and the assigned reading. Each grade level receives developmentally appropriate instruction that prepares students for subsequent learning. This allows students to use prior knowledge and reflective thinking to develop an advanced understanding of a topic.

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 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: Time Management Strategies
Learning how to manage one's time is a key to success and helps relieve stress in daily life. Teaching young children how to manage their time involves both directly instructing children through step by step processes and also modeling the habits of time management. As kids get older, they may take on more responsibilities and activities. It may be necessary to weigh the benefits and consequences of completing certain tasks above others. Another key aspect of time management is staying organized and planning ahead. Keep a calendar and make sure to look at the next day’s responsibilities before making other plans. By getting into the habit of placing important tasks first, while honoring your personal needs, you may be able to find balance and still get the chance to check off your to-do’s.
