Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Southport District Curriculum
Preschool instruction highlights core aspects of communication and literacy. Students will learn foundational skills in reading, writing, speaking, and listening. In grades kindergarten through sixth, students will receive specific instruction to enhance mathematical and literacy skills. In addition, students receive instruction in social studies, science, health and physical education, art, and music.
The secondary curriculum in Elmira consists mostly of college and/or career preparatory course subjects, such as technology, business, fine arts, personal wellness, family and consumer science, and languages other than English. Specialized instruction in core academic subjects helps students gain insight into post-secondary life. Students have access to career and technical education and advanced options. Guidance counselors provide students with information about timelines, testing, and career clusters so students can create four-year plans.

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: The Importance of Assistive Technology
Every student has a weakness. Some weaknesses may stem from slight to severe learning and physical disabilities. While each student differs in his or her needs, laws mandate that schools provide students with assistive technologies. These technologies can range from no- and low-technologies, to mid- and high-technologies. Some no- and low-technologies include pencil grips, organizing tools, and nonslip placements for desktops. Mid-technologies, such as audio and visual recorders, calculators, and stopwatches can assist students in many ways. Students who need high-technology devices may have access to electronic communication boards that speak for the child or voice-recognition computer programs that help students create documents without typing. Regardless of the need, all students should have access to any assistive technology. Even students who are not labeled with a disability should utilize tools to serve their academic needs. Together, parents, teachers, and community members can help to raise awareness of the importance of tools to help students perform at their highest capabilities.
