Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Rochester District Curriculum
Within the Sciences, students are expected to evaluate the world around them and gain an understanding of the physical world. They will delve into topics such as organisms, ecosystems, physical properties, biological systems, and more. In Mathematics, students learn about the use of numbers in basic arithmetic and, as they progress through middle and high school, they will be expected to become familiar with algebraic and geometric constructs. Additionally, students will learn how to utilize statistical data and probability, and how to use mathematical systems and models to problem-solve.
Students will engage in building a variety of communication-building skills within English Language Arts. They will develop literacy in both reading and writing. The focus of their work will be to build vocabulary, comprehension, grammatical skills, and research techniques. As students enter middle and high school they will be expected to construct believable arguments, and to provide appropriate evidence.

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: Finding a Major: It’s Okay Not to Know
Some people know from age three on that they want to be a doctor. Others develop a passion for teaching in elementary school, and it carries through their entire life. College applications unanimously ask the question: What do you want to major in? Often times, for the students who did not start playing with a stethoscope in preschool, this question can be a daunting one. One option many students may not consider is that of the undecided major. Some schools even have special programs designed for these undecided students – programs that give them freedom to try a number of subjects their freshman and even sophomore year of college until they find something that fits. High school juniors and seniors applying to college do not have to know what they want to major in. Often times those students who do choose a major end up changing it during their four years of undergraduate studies. Sometimes, it is okay not to know.
