Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Merrick District Curriculum
In elementary school, the curriculum focuses on establishing fundamental knowledge in each subject. During middle school, the curriculum transitions from fundamentals to more complex work. The district allows sixth graders to take pre-algebra if they show advanced skills and offers remedial instruction for students struggling in math and language arts. At each high school, students have many chances to prepare for life beyond twelfth grade among choices ranging from college preparatory courses to specialized career-related courses.
Students may take courses in art, computer education, engineering, English language arts, health, languages other than English, mathematics, music, occupational education (business, and family and consumer sciences), physical education, science, and social studies. Advanced Placement (AP) and college-level courses are available to students, as well. Staff provides students with support through academic intervention services (AIS) and special education resources. All graduation requirements meet the NYSED requirements.

Merrick District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Residents of Merrick will attend the Merrick Union Free School District (MUFSD) for primary education, and then Bellmore-Merrick Central High School District (BMCHSD) for secondary education. Each district provides instruction that is developmentally appropriate and adheres to the requirements set forth through the New York State Education Department (NYSED). Through the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), the primary and secondary curricula meets federal and state goals to ensure each child is literate in all subject matter, as well as competent with numbers and computations. The ultimate objective of each district is to prepare students for post-secondary educational and employment opportunities.

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 Multiple Intelligence Theory
The Multiple Intelligence Theory consists of eight intelligences: musical-rhythmic, visual-spatial, verbal-linguistic, logical-mathematical, bodily-kinesthetic, interpersonal, intrapersonal, and naturalistic. A person may exhibit intelligence in one or many areas, but to raise a smart child, it is important to provide opportunities to learn in all aspects. To do so, parents should expose their children to art, music, and dance. Getting involved in sports or rhythmic aerobics can hone musical, visual, and bodily intelligences. For interpersonal communication, help children begin and continue conversations; setting up interviews with friends and family members is a great way to grow interpersonal skills. Journaling, meditation, and scrapbooking may aid in sharpening intrapersonal skills. Exposing children to emotions and asking them about their own is a great way to keep them in-touch with themselves. Nature walks, trips to the zoo, and cloud watching can enhance their naturalistic intelligence. These escapades can also lead to learning about science, which will help with logical intelligence. For verbal and logical intelligence, using tools, like flashcards or tutoring can also give a child the practice they need to improve this area of intelligence.
