Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Saratoga Springs District Curriculum
In New York State, the language abilities set out for English/Language Arts have been extended for use in Science, Social Studies, History, and technical classes. Students begin to learn the essentials of the Core Curriculum at the earliest grades which are to read, write, listen, speak and begin to develop control of the English language. Student start by learning phonics and they learn to analyze their reading material through talking and writing. Middle and high school students progress to more complex reading material including classics and contemporary fiction and nonfiction. Students learn to use critical analysis skills to write expository compositions and reports using their own research.

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: History Resources for Kids
A way to engage children in history and colonial times is to have them visit the Martha Washington ‘Cooking with Martha Washington’ exhibit at the Mount Vernon Estate in Mount Vernon, Virginia. If that is not possible you can see the exhibit in action at the KidsUSA site for videos. What you will find at the site is a discussion with Curator Susan Schoelwer as she shows you different kitchen items that were actually used in Martha Washington’s kitchen. You will see a mortar and pestle, copper pots used to make jam and jellies and even a heart shaped waffle iron.
