Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Vestal District Curriculum
Vestal’s math curriculum is designed to teach students core mathematics concepts in the earliest grades. In these grades student develop an understanding of numeration, problem solving, abstract thinking, and reasoning that they build upon as they move up through subsequent grades. Students learn about math as it relates to engineering and technology, as well, so that students can see how it is used in everyday applications.
The English Language Arts curriculum is designed to teach student to read and write about a wide variety of fiction and non-fiction texts. It also develops students’ speaking, listening, and language skills, and teaches students to apply them in all subject areas. Research is also a key component of the Language Arts curriculum, and students learn how to locate information, evaluate its usefulness and relevance, determine an author’s point of view, and incorporate their thoughts into their own work.

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: Leading By Example
The next time you are talking to your child about not reading enough or not working on their handwriting ask yourself when you last read and worked on you handwriting. Your child learns by doing, but he or she also learns by seeing. Your child models the things he or she sees you do. So, if you are watching TV and messing around on the Internet instead of reading and developing new skills, your child will assume that he or she is supposed to do the same thing. If your child sees you reading and learning new and interesting thing, he or she will be more interesting in reading and learning new things. The best option is always to learn together – when children are young, days spent at the children’s museum can develop a child’s love of learning for a lifetime. Going to national parks and other historic sites together is another way to learn while really just enjoying your time with each other.
