Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Port Jervis District Curriculum
The overall goal for students is to be literate in English and Language Arts, Math and have a wide educational experience in a variety of subjects including History, Social Studies and Science. The basics of the Literacy program is centered on developing reading, writing, listening and speaking abilities. Students learn through a progression of increasingly challenging tasks including reading both informational text and literature and the development of critical analysis abilities to evaluate what they have read.
In Mathematics, students focus in on a set number of mathematical subjects including computation, algebra, geometry, probability and statistics and build on these skills in each grade level. The goal is to have an in depth understanding of the core of mathematical skills so students can apply what they have learned to more difficult math problems with speed, accuracy and confidence.

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.
