Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Somers District Curriculum
Somers schools’ English Language Arts instruction is based on a curriculum that encourages students to learn to read and comprehend a wide range of fiction and non-fiction texts. Once students have mastered reading and comprehension, they go on to develop the ability to research, critique, and communicate their ideas about the texts they read both verbally and through reflective and analytic writing.
Somers schools’ math instruction is based on a curriculum that requires students develop an understanding of core mathematics concepts in the earliest grades. Once students develop an understanding of core concepts such as numerations, pattern recognition, and abstract reasoning they begin to learn how to use those concepts to solve real-world problems. In all core courses, technology is integrated as a teaching and learning tool, allowing students to use educational software, conduct research, create digital media of their own work and learn about graphic design.

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: Talking with Your Child
Sometimes parents take their child’s learning difficulties personally. They see their child struggling in math or reading and wonder if they are somehow to blame. They wonder if they should have spent more time reading to their child, or more time going over flashcards. Parents need to remember that they weren’t doing equations and reading from birth. They had their own learning difficulties, now long forgotten. Of course, a parent who is dealing with a child who has learning difficulties should work with that child. However, working isn’t always enough. A parent also needs to talk to the child about the difficulties he or she is having. Letting a child know that struggling is normal, and that each person learns at a different pace will ease the child’s fears of failure and remind the child that he or she is not alone.
