Educating Our Parents: Understanding the West Seneca District Curriculum
The Common Core Standards are a clear set of shared goals and expectations for the knowledge and skills students need in Language Arts and Math at each grade level. The English Language Arts curriculum consists of listening and learning, skills and guided and accountable independent reading. Listening and learning lessons include teacher read-alouds, class discussions, vocabulary work and additional integrated activities.
The revised Common Core Math Standards build a solid foundation in whole numbers, addition, multiplication, division, fractions and decimals. The middle and high school standards require students to practice and apply mathematical ways of thinking to real world situations and challenges and prepare students to think and reason mathematically. West Seneca’s elementary schools program provides a solid foundation in basic skills and offer classes in art, instrumental music, physical education, health and safety. Technology is also integrated into the curriculum.

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: The Importance of Parent Support During the First Year of College
The first year of college is a difficult adjustment for both parents and students. It is a challenge for parents to learn how to support, communicate and interact with their adult children in new ways once they leave for college. Here are some tips on what parents can do to help their child adjust to college. These strategies include: 1) Accompany your child to college orientation and visit often throughout the semester 2) Show interest in their college experience – ask about their dorm, friends, classes and instructors 3) Keep in frequent communication with your student: Phone, E-Mail, Text and Send Care Packages 4) Help with the stress of finances by sending money for food, clothing, books or other necessities.5) Keep an Open Dialogue with your student to determine how you can support them. 6) Encourage independence by helping your child solve their problems, and accept responsibility for their decisions. 7) Finally, do not pressure your child to return home frequently – encourage them to spend time at school.
