Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Mt. Vernon District Curriculum
In Language Arts, there is a focus on the development of reading skills moving from simple to challenging texts. All students gain the ability to critically analyze text, and both write and talk about the reading. Students also learn to write expository compositions, research reports and relate their reading material to themselves, to their knowledge and to their world. Students learn to appreciate different forms of literature and understand was of conducting analysis of various texts.
The basis of the Math curriculum is to provide students with a working knowledge of mathematical principles and to know when and how to apply these principles in a technological age. In elementary school, students learn numbers, computational skills, measurements and the fundamentals of algebra and geometry. As students continue with their studies, they develop skills in using rational numbers, proportional relationships, linear equations, and word problems. Statistics and variability is also part of the curriculum. Students explore statistical variability and learn how to summarize and describe distributions.

Mt. Vernon District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Mount Vernon City School District adheres to the Common Core Curriculum as do all the school districts in the State of New York. The Common Core Curriculum Framework is a progressive program that starts in the Pre-Kindergarten years and begins with the fundamentals and then builds on that as a student moves through the grades. Additionally, each enrichment program or elective-style class will have a curricular plan that details the expectations for learning and how it will contribute to a child’s overall academic success. These ensure that all students are being provided the tools for success.
We currently cover the following Mt. Vernon-area school district: Mt. Vernon City School District.

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.
