Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Niskayuna District Curriculum
Niskayuna’s math curriculum focuses on teaching core mathematics concepts such as pattern recognition, measurement and spatial analysis, concrete and abstract reasoning, problems solving, and numeration. Student begin to develop a basic understanding of these concepts in the earliest grades. In the later grades, students are able to solve advanced algebraic problems using different formula and become adept at working with theorems in geometry.
Niskayuna’s English Language Arts curriculum focuses on developing students’ ability to read widely and deeply in a wide variety of fiction and non-fiction texts. Once students develop these basic skills, they go on to apply them to areas such as research, writing, and communication. Spoken communication and listening skills are emphasized, and in class discussion about texts are a part of the learning goals for students. As they take in ideas from their peers, and from the works they read, students are also expected to learn how to incorporate others ideas into their own writing.

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: Last Days of the School Year
Things can get a little wild when students begin to realize that the end of the school year is fast approaching. When exhausted teacher start to get a little looser with the rules and begin to show more movies than usual, kids know that it is their time to act out. They roll their eyes a little more and put a little more effort into seeing whether or not they can push the class into chaos. Some of this is inevitable—think of it like 4:45 at the office on a Friday—but parents do need to remind kids that the old rules still apply, even if it is the end of the year. Kids who know that they need to reel it in a little help teachers get through the day, and the also make life easier for their parents. After all, a kid who develops a taste for breaking rules in class will surely bring that behavior home.
