Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Uniondale District Curriculum
Uniondale’s world languages curriculum focuses on the development of communication skills and cross-cultural understanding. Listening and speaking skills are acquired, which allows students to provide or ask for information, socialize, express feelings and opinions, and otherwise communicate in a new language. To do this, students develop the ability to comprehend simple words, phrases, and other structures. In extended conversations, students work on identifying the main idea and develop strategies for identifying unfamiliar words or phrases using the context of the conversation. These strategies include repetition, rephrasing, and nonverbal cues.
Cultural awareness is part of the world languages curriculum as well. Students develop an understanding that communication goes beyond just words, and that perceptions, gestures, and family or community dynamics can impact the manner in which a message is conveyed or received. Language learners engage in activities that allow them to develop an appreciation for the appropriate gestures when speaking to or greeting someone, as well as the appropriate physical distance one should be when engaging in conversation.

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.

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: Why Mentoring Programs Work
Mentoring programs have been implemented in many school districts as an intervention to reduce the number of students that drop out of school. The highest dropout rate is among freshmen, so most mentoring programs target that age group. These programs work for a number of reasons. First, mentoring gets freshmen connected to other students, both within their grade and the grades above them. By building a community of kids, students are much less likely to feel isolated and alone, while feelings of connectedness and belonging increase. Second, mentoring programs have been shown to significantly reduce absenteeism. The more a child is in school, the more likely he or she is to stay on top of their work and be successful. Lastly, mentorship programs help students build academic and life skills that some kids may lack upon entrance into high school. Students learn how to study for exams and how to take notes, as well as how to communicate effectively and resolve problems in an appropriate manner.
