Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Rensselaer District Curriculum
The Rensselaer City School District uses the Common Core Curriculum Framework in all the schools in serves. The standards set clear expectations for students in the State of New York. These expectations include an intensive learning experience focused on the basics of reading, writing, speaking, listening, language, and mathematics. In English and Language Arts and Mathematics students are taught the skills needed for college and the workforce.
In Language Arts, students read both informational text and literature and develop skills of critical analysis and learn to write and speak using evidence based informational research. Coursework is progressively more challenging in each grade, building on the year’s previous skills. In mathematics, students focus in on a limited curriculum in math including computational skills, algebra including proportional reasoning, geometry, statistics and probability. Each grade reinforces the mastery of the core subjects while further developing a fluency in math.

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: An Animal a Day
A librarian has created a blog site where she provides information on a particular animal each day. There are photos, and information about each animal including where they live, their size and characteristics, and classification. Animals from all over the world are profiled. This is great way for kids to learn about animals a little bit at a time. There are also lists of recommended books, and movies and children can suggest what animal she should profile next.
