Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Paterson District Curriculum
Paterson aims to provide education which will be both useful and relevant to students and prepare them for post-secondary success. The Math curriculum is based on the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards. In grades K-5, students learn measurements and data, geometry, algebraic thinking, base ten and fractions skills and concepts. In grades 6-8, students continue with these skills and concepts on a higher level and are taught probability, data analysis and discrete mathematics. In grades 9-12, students continue to master algebra and geometry as well as calculus.
Elementary science in Paterson introduces students to matter, energy and motion through hands-on activities, observation and discussion. In middle school, students learn earth and environmental science, space, cells, human body systems, light and sound, matter, motion and energy. In high school, students have the opportunity to learn biology, chemistry, environmental science, medical pharmacology and physics.

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: Help for Homework Time
Homework can often be a time of struggle between parents and students. There are several ways that parents can help their child stay on-task during homework time and even view it as a more positive experience. First, it is important to establish a homework routine. Designating a set time and place for homework to be done ensures that students can separate play time from work time. Help avoid distractions by making sure all needed materials are gathered before students sit down to work. Let students study in a way that is most comfortable for them (i.e. listening to music). If need be, create a “homework contract” with your child, clearly stating expectations, rewards and consequences. Also, enlist the help of other family members to ensure homework gets done, especially when parental supervision is not possible.
