Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lysander District Curriculum
Instruction in Lysander math classes is based on a set of standards that seek to develop students’ understanding of basic mathematics concepts such as numeration, problem solving, and abstract thinking. For instance, students learn to find the areas and circumferences of circles and the surface area of 3 dimensional shapes. They also learn to do scale drawings, graph proportional relationships and learn how to use data findings to answer questions.
Instruction in Lysander English Language Arts classes is based on a set of standards that require students to be able to read closely and attentively in a wide range of fiction and non-fiction texts. It uses close and attentive reading as basis on which to develop other literacy skills, such as writing, speaking, and listening. Media viewing and conducting research are also emphasized in the curriculum and help students apply their critical thinking skills to texts and media works that are of interest to them.

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: Was to Help a Student with Math
Math can be a tough subject for a lot of students, especially in the early going. The abstract nature of dealing with numbers on a page does not fit every learning style. If you are working with a student who is having trouble with math, take the number off the page and put them in his or her hands. Give the student something hat he or she can feel, like small blocks, pennies, or pieces of paper. When the student begins working simple math problems with things he or she can touch, he or she will begin to understand that numbers on a page can represent something that’s real and tactile. In later years, math may be more complicated than a parent is able to keep up with, and considering a math tutor may be exactly what the student needs to truly understand the content. This will help the student get over the hump of abstract thinking, and to begin working his or her way to mathematics literacy, and confidence.
