Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Mamakating District Curriculum
Each district within Mamakating follows New York State Education Department (NYSED) requirements. The NYSED has recently adopted and implemented the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), a federal initiative designed to streamline core academic subjects. Currently, the CCSS focuses on changes made within the English language arts and mathematics curricula. The districts provide developmentally appropriate instruction to children in elementary, middle, and high school.
Every district offers young students lessons in English language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, character building, physical education, music, and art. As students progress through their academic careers, core courses become more rigorous and elective choices become more abundant. The high school curriculum for each district provides secondary students the opportunity to plan for college and/or career. All schools meet the New York State Education Department high school graduation requirements.
Contact our Academic Directors Today at 1-877-545-7737 to Discuss your Child's Strengths and Areas for Improvement.
SchoolTutoring Academy’s tutoring programs for Mamakating students start with a free academic assessment with an Academic Director. Our flagship tutoring programs are available for $199.99/month which include regular one-on-one tutoring, academic mentorship, bi-monthly progress reports, learning profiles, and parental conference calls.

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: The Value of Project-Based Learning
Project-Based Learning (PBL) is a type of instructional method that uses long-term learning goals and multi-faceted assessments to provide students with knowledge. Many educators and psychologists agree that PBL can offer students with a deeper understanding of a subject, while providing real-world experiences and critical thinking skills. Teachers provide students with objectives and classroom activities, while students create most of their learning through exploration, monitoring, and group discussions. Examples of PBL could include creating a news broadcast (as opposed to reading about one and filling out a worksheet), working as a medical team to diagnose a patient, or building a model to demonstrate potential and kinetic energies. For PBL to work, teachers need to provide students with real-world connections, class activities that address clear learning objectives, opportunities for student interaction, and promote student-led discoveries. With more project-based assignments, students may be better prepared for post-secondary life.
