Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Plainview District Curriculum
The elementary science curriculum helps students build the knowledge and skills they need to engage in scientific studies. Students acquire the ability to develop questions and hypotheses, and participate in experiments to test those hypotheses. Learners develop basic skills, such as the ability to observe, record, analyze, and report data. Students learn how to gather information about a research question, including from the Internet and print materials, in order to devise informed conclusions about possible answers. Students also work with models to get a clearer picture of their research question.
Plainview’s high school students participate in an English language arts curriculum that includes the study of complex literary and informational texts. Students develop the ability to read for textual details that inform readers of the author’s intent. Students also learn how to use the information they’ve gathered to participate in informed discussions about their readings. Using the context of the readings, students learn the meanings of unfamiliar words and phrases as well. The skills necessary to summarize literary and informational texts are also gained.

Plainview District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Plainview’s students attend public school in the Plainview-Old Bethpage Central School District. The primary mission of the district is to provide an environment that is academically challenging and engaging. Students in kindergarten through the twelfth grade take part in educational activities that focus on their academic, social, and emotional development. Children acquire the necessary skills to be successful and contributing members of society, while also learning about the world in which they live and gaining an appreciation for those unlike themselves. In a district of over 5,000 students, children acquire these skills and personal qualities in classrooms that have small student-to-teacher ratios, and in schools that offer plenty of room to learn and explore.
We currently cover the following Plainview-area school district: Plainview-Old Bethpage Central School District.

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.

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: Writing an Impactful College Essay
The college essay is an extremely important component of the application materials. It is an opportunity for applicants to convey their personality and explain why their experiences and achievements make them an excellent candidate for admission. However, the process of writing the essay can be overwhelming for many kids. To ensure their essay is of the highest quality, students need to keep it short. This isn’t to say they should gloss over details, rather, they should be concise in addressing all aspects of the essay prompt. It is also important for students to write in a manner that is easy to read and features a coherent flow from one idea to the next. Admissions officers will not view kindly an essay that is poorly written. College applicants should also strive to bring individuality to their essay. In a sea of essays, admissions officers are looking for something that is impactful and stands out. Writing from one’s unique perspective using vivid language and details can do just that.
