Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Westchester District Curriculum
In mathematics and science classes, students use critical and analytic thinking to solve problems, evaluating and refining strategies for problem solving. They are also offered opportunities to apply their acquired knowledge to real-life experiences whenever possible. Students are expected to use resources, technology, and time effectively and efficiently and to monitor their own progress through self-evaluation.
In humanities classes, students learn to read for comprehension, interpretation and analysis. They use a variety of techniques to collect, organize, analyze, and retain information for us in essays as supporting evidence for different audiences. They learn how to recognize tone and to control their own in their writing. Students learn to be effective communicators who hold critical discussion, write clearly and coherently, and demonstrate good listening skills.

Westchester District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The districts strives to produce strong, well-rounded students who are quipped to challenge the future. Students are taught to understand and apply a core body of knowledge and skills across the curriculum and to take responsibility for their own learning. Students also learn to treat themselves and others with respect when working within groups. They are taught to demonstrate ethical behavior, accept responsibility for their own actions, demonstrate positive choices for physical and emotional health, and act as socially responsible citizens. As such, they demonstrate respect for individuals, cultures, races, and genders and act responsibly towards others.

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.
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: Early Action vs. Regular Decision
There are several different types of college applications, each with their own benefits and drawbacks. Early Action (EA) is one of the most common. The deadline is earlier than many other application types, often November 15th. Colleges tend to respond fairly quickly as well, often as quickly as a month, so that students might have a decision by the end of the calendar year. Since it is early, the applicant is competing against fewer students, which improves his/her odds. Also, because the student was willing to submit an early application, the college tends to look favorably on the student. EA applications won’t benefit the student as much as some other types, but they also don’t carry the drawbacks of some other types of applications. EA applications are nonbinding, for example, which means the student doesn’t have to commit to the college until s/he is ready to.
