Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Smithtown District Curriculum
The revised standards incorporate both content and skill. In English/Language Arts, students are required to read a variety of classic and contemporary literature as well as informational texts on a variety of subjects. Students are expected to build knowledge, gain insight, explore possibilities and broaden their views. The standards for writing, listening, speaking and language help prepare students for real life experiences in college or for a 21st Century career.
The Kindergarten to 5th grade math standards provides students with a solid foundation in whole numbers, operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division) fractions and decimals. These standards emphasize both content and process and promote conceptual understanding to make sure students are absorbing the information they need to succeed in higher grades. Having built a strong foundation, students will be well prepared for algebra in middle school and to apply mathematical thinking into real world applications in high school.

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.

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.
