Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Niagara Falls District Curriculum
The public schools in Niagara Falls adhere to the Common Core Curriculum, a nationwide set of learning standards. English/Language Arts begins with an emphasis on reading, writing, listening, and speaking. Students learn to demonstrate their reading comprehension through the asking and answering of questions and produce writing compositions. Students move to more demanding literature both fiction and nonfiction and should be able to analyze the content, and relate it to other events.
In Math, the focus is on helping students to develop and become confident in using mathematical problem solving skills in order to apply them to real world situations. Elementary students learn basic arithmetic, basic algebra and geometry, the studies of which continue through high school. Students learn how to feel comfortable with mathematical modeling and are able to apply mathematical concepts including algebraic concepts and geometric measurements to real world problems.

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.

There are activities and games for children to play as they learn fiscal skills. There is also information for older children and for parents and teachers.
