Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Union District Curriculum
The English/Language Arts Standards focus on the knowledge and skills needed in the area of reading, writing, speaking, listening and language. The district has implemented a Literacy Collaborative to help its students improve the reading, writing and language skills of its elementary school children. The program uses effective instructional strategies recommended by The National Reading Panel in the areas of phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary and comprehension.
The revised Common Core Standards for Math provide a more in-depth focus on fewer benchmarks and focus on content and skill. Students build a strong knowledge in the early grades of mathematical principals and concepts in the area of whole numbers, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, fractions and decimals which helps them understand and apply mathematical problems to real world situations. The Union-Endicott Central School District is a leader in the use of instructional technology in the region and offers a wide variety of athletic and extra-curricular activities.

Union District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The curriculum followed in the Union-Endicott Central School District is aligned to the New York State Learning Standards for students in Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 12. The Common Core Standards establish a clear set of learning expectations for students throughout New York State and across the country to prepare students for college and career success. The standards define the knowledge and skills needed by students, emphasize learning goals and focus on end results. The standards allow teachers the flexibility to determine how their students learn and reach their goals.
We currently cover the following Union-area school district: Union-Endicott Central School District.

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: Should Struggling Students Repeat a Grade?
The National Association of School Psychologists warns that repeating a grade may be ineffective and possibly harmful to a struggling student. Studies show that gains may only be short-term. At first, students may do a little bit better but usually within two to three years have lost those gains. Repeating a grade is also emotionally devastating to children and often generates feelings of being stupid and incompetent. The problems caused by retention may be long term. In the higher grades, “overage” students have different developmental needs and interest than their fellow students. They tend to have more problems with friends and behavior and are 5-11 times more likely to drop out of school. If your child is struggling and their school has suggested retention – parent involvement is a top strategy for success and avoiding retention according to Britton Schnurr, PsyD, a practicing psychologist with Guilderland New York Central School District. Parents should ask questions about their child’s friends, the school curriculum and homework. Parents, teachers and school specialists working together is the key to educational success.
