Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Ostego District Curriculum
The English language arts curriculum in Otsego seeks to provide students with opportunities to develop the skills required for effectively reading informational texts. Learners analyze passages to determine precisely what the author is saying. Utilizing specific examples from their readings, students justify their determinations of the author’s intent. Idea development is also emphasized. Learners acquire the ability to identify a text’s central idea, and note how that idea is supported throughout the reading and how it develops.
A large part of Otsego’s high school arts curriculum is learning how to respond to and critique art. Students examine a wide variety of music, noting the similarities and differences between genres. In theatre, learners participate in critiques of actor performances. These critiques include suggestions for improved stage presence and interactions with the audience. In the visual arts, students identify characteristics of artistic works that engage viewers in the strongest manner. Learners explore how to make their art more meaningful through adherence to common themes and topics that cross genres and cultures.

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: Choosing the Right Tutor
Struggling students can benefit greatly from having a private tutor. But selecting the tutor that is right for your child and his or her needs involves much more than picking a name off a website. Tutors should be able to demonstrate expertise in the area in which your child needs assistance. For example, while a tutor that has a background in math might have an excellent understanding of social studies, it’s prudent to find a tutor that specializes in social studies if that’s the area in which your child struggles. Content knowledge is key. Another key is to select a tutor whose personality is a good fit with your child. Tutors should be warm and compassionate, yet able to direct your child’s attention and challenge them to work hard and achieve their goals.
