Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Scarsdale District Curriculum
Scarsdale schools base instruction in English Language Arts on the New York State P-12 Common Core Learning Standards. These standards require students to develop the ability to read and the ability to comprehend what they read. The standards go on to use the skills of reading and reading comprehension as a base on which to develop student’s writing, research, critical thinking, and communication skills.
Scarsdale schools base instruction in math on New York State P-12 Common Core Learning Standards. The standards require students to develop an understanding of core mathematics concepts in the earliest grades. In subsequent grades student go on to further develop their understanding of these concepts, and learn to use their knowledge of their concepts to solve classroom and real-world problems. Besides these subjects, students attend classes in Art, Music, Physical Education, and Library/Media. High quality teachers and a solid curriculum give the students a successful start.

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: When a Kid Says "I'm Bored"
Though there is no empirical evidence to back this up, children probably say the words “bored,” “boredom,” and “boring” more in the summer than they do during any other season. Seeing as children wait all year for the summer, it seems odd that they would spend so much time complaining about how boring it is. Upon hearing the “b-word” come out of a child’s mouth for the first time in the summer, many parents react by quickly thinking of an activity to do. That is the wrong approach. Often, children who complain of boredom aren’t really bored. Rather, they are either looking for attention or so over-stimulated that they think the word “bored” means not having something to do for the next 30 seconds. As such, parents should let children be bored. If a child is really bored for long enough he or she will try to find a way out the boredom, which gives him or her the opportunity to be creative and entertain him- or herself.
