Educating Our Parents: Understanding the New Paltz District Curriculum
Language Arts skills include, but are not limited to, reading, reading comprehension, research, writing, and verbal communication. Being able to pick out the most important information will also help students summarize what they have read, which will be required on most assessments through college. Students also benefit from developing writing portfolios by being able to keep track of their work and seeing the growth of their writing ability. This gives students a feeling of ownership which often results in better performance.
The benefit of the journals and writing portfolios is that they allow teachers to track what skills and strategies students are using as they read. For instance, if a student is having trouble making connections to a piece of literature, it will be evident in their responses. Students may also use these journals as a record of what they have read throughout the year. It also helps to dramatically increase the amount of reflective and analytic thinking a student is capable of doing.

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: What Is a Summative Assessment
Summative assessments test students’ understanding of an entire unit of study (such as a chapter of a textbook or a story in a reading basal). The goal is to summarize the extent of student success in mastering what is taught, a reflection on both student and teacher. The traditional method involves giving a written assessment, but end-of-unit projects, presentations, and writing assignments may be effective summative assessments as well. In fact, it is beneficial to vary assessment methods. The younger the student, the less material will be involved in the summative assessment. High school students will usually be given mid-term and final exams as expanded summative assessments to test their understanding of all the material in the first half of the year and then the whole year. The ACT is a summative assessment and gauges learning throughout high school.
