Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Shawangunk District Curriculum
Instruction in Shawangunk schools’ English Language Arts classes is based on benchmarked standards that require students to develop important literacy skills that can be applied to all subject areas. The skills include, but are not limited to, reading closely and attentively, comprehending a variety of fiction and non-fiction texts, researching, and writing. Students compose both short and lengthy writing pieces in all subject classes, the majority of which is informative and summarizes what they have read.
Instruction in Shawangunk schools’ math classes is also based on benchmarked standards. These standards develop students’ understanding of core mathematics concepts in the earliest grades. Once students master concepts like abstract thinking, numeration, and problem solving they go on to learn how use their knowledge of these concepts to solve real world problems connected to science, technology and engineering.

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: School Jobs
While community service requirements and community outreach efforts have become a mainstay of education, many young students also benefit from having a 'job' at school. You just don’t see as many children working as hall monitors, water fountain monitors, and classroom assistants as you once did. That is a shame because these and other similar school jobs taught many students lessons about responsibility, safety, and fairness. Of course, insurance laws are different than they once were, and with schools facing concerns about litigiousness, but that shouldn’t stop schools from putting students with good behavior records to work. Students who do small jobs at school will gain experience and knowledge that will serve them well for the rest of their lives. All they need is a chance to prove their responsibility to themselves.
