Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lansing District Curriculum
The primary curriculum at each district begins with foundational instruction in general academic subjects. Students take part in small- and large-group instruction, as well as attending lessons in non-core subjects, such as art, music, library, character education, and physical education. Students have opportunities to interact through unstructured play via recess, lunch, and snack time. The districts also offer students physical and speech therapies, academic intervention, special education, and other services when needed.
Students at the middle schools receive instruction in core academic subjects, as well as technology, media, music, foreign languages, physical education, health, and art. Support programs are also available, such as academic intervention, special education, and English as a second language. High school programs are similar to middle school offerings, except their courses are more specialized to prepare students for college and/or career.

Lansing District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs

Both the LCSD and ICSD adhere to the standards and guidelines created by the New York State Education Department (NYSED).

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.

Chalk Talk: How to Prepare Teens for Career Choices
From a young age, children begin to think about what they want to be when they “grow up”. It is ingrained in us all to determine our career calling, attend training, and join the workforce. However, is this task as easy as it sounds? No, it is not. Choosing a career path can be stressful and unclear, especially for adolescents about to graduate from high school. Without a clear plan, students may waste time (and money) in high school and college courses, which can defeat their abilities to find their true callings. Some schools offer career assessments, such as personality and interests surveys, but many times, this step is not enough. Parents and teachers should help guide teenagers to determine their paths, even if it takes a few years to narrow down. Adults should encourage teens to identify their interests and passions, but in practical ways.
