Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Syracuse District Curriculum
The Language Arts curriculum encourages that all students spend quality time writing and reading, talking about the text, and executing individual performance feedback. The Math curriculum focuses on many aspects of the learning process in mathematics, including learning ways to reason abstractly and quantitatively, using appropriate tools strategically, and attending to precision in problem-solving methods.
The Science curriculum focuses on lessons that will prepare students to obtain core science, engineering, and technology literacy. Students learn about the scientific process and have many hands-on learning opportunities. construct models to investigate attributes of the real object under study. Patterns of change are explored as well, with students developing an understanding that changes to humans, animals, and plants occur in predictable sequences. With the basis provided by the core curriculum, students will have modern skills that are critical for college readiness and to be effective members of the global workforce.

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: Considering Colleges
Picking the right college or university is more than just choosing a name. Of course, the most important factor is the field you plan on studying. A small liberal arts college may not have the engineering program you’re looking for. Start by finding the program you want, and then consider other factors, such as the size and location of the school. Urban schools often have a lot of commuters and may not have a lot of on-campus activities, while schools in more rural areas offer more in the way of campus life. A private or smaller school may have 5,000 or fewer students, while a larger state school may have well over 30,000. What about sports teams? A Big 10 school will have a far different collegiate atmosphere than a smaller liberal arts school. If you get into a school and realize the size or location is not what you were expecting and you feel overwhelmed (or underwhelmed), talk to your Resident Advisor (RA) or admissions counselor immediately.
