Educating Our Parents: Understanding the New York City District Curriculum
The Language Arts curriculum focuses on making students college and career-ready. New York City schools use the Common Core and Engage NY in order to prepare students, focusing on reading, writing, and discussion using evidence from text. This process will also prepare students for the Regents Exam in English/Language Arts. The Math curriculum also follows the Common Core and EngageNY Standards; these expectations follow fewer topics to allow greater focus on grade-specific work, concepts, and models.
The Science curriculum provides a framework for grade-appropriate learning as well. The elementary focus is on hands-on and question-based learning, middle school requires students to explore and explain topics in-depth as preparation for the Grade 8 Exit Project, and high school learning garners mastery of content in Regents Courses such as Living Environment, Earth Science, Chemistry, and Physics. For all core subjects, there is a high school exit exam called the Regents Exam. In each subject, a score of 65 will qualify a student for a Regents Diploma, and earning a score of 75 or more may pass a student out of basic college courses.

New York City Area District Curriculum We Follow
The curriculum in New York City covers the academic subjects and lays out the major areas of learning within each. The expectations are described so that teachers may plan lessons and assessments that are aligned to meet key instructional objectives. The standards call for evidence that students comprehend the concept or procedures being studied and provides for opportunities to analyze or reason about what they are learning. In specialized or magnet programs, the standard curriculum is taught in conjunction with the subject matter that is the focus of the program. The design of these curriculum allow for students to go deeper into each subject each year and their critical, analytic, problem solving and reasoning skills become developed.
We currently cover the following New York City-area school district: New York City Department of Education.

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: Interviewing Well
With college on the horizon, students are often nervous when it comes to admissions and the possibility of interviews with university faculty or staff. First, be cool! They are on your side; they want you to choose their school. The goal of an interview is to find out who you are and if you plan to work hard, finish your degree, and make their school look good. Second, stay confident. A firm handshake and steady eye contact tells an interviewer that you’re serious about your education and that you want to be there. Finally, be yourself. Share your interests and experiences. Colleges want to know what you will bring to their campus. Students who have interests and will engage in campus life are more likely to stay in school. So bring your A-game to your interview and let them know you’re serious about your education.
