Educating Our Parents: Understanding the White Plains District Curriculum
The public schools in White Plains follow the state standard for curriculum which is the Common Core Learning Standards (CCLS) for all grades. The Common Core Standards have been established to help standardize curriculum across the nation to ensure that all students receive the same level of education. They require students to show evidence of their thinking and be able to communicate in any subject. The curriculum concentrates on the same basic concepts while they advance to more challenging levels with increased opportunities for analytic and reasoning tasks.
The Common Core Curriculum for Language Arts applies the development of literacy and writing skills to History, Social Studies, Math, Science and technical curriculum. All students work on learning how to use critical thinking to analyze textual material to become able to discuss and write about their subjects. All students in New York must pass Regents exams in English, Global History, U.S. History, Science and Math.

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: Learning about Modern Art
If your child is showing signs of being a budding Picasso it is never too early to introduce them to the concepts of contemporary art. At the Destination Modern Art website, young people will find an interactive introduction to the Museum of Modern Arts collection and the PS 1 Contemporary Art Center in Manhattan. The interactive site starts with an alien in a spaceship who beams down as the tour guide to the museum. There are games and activities to take part in as the child learns about artists and their works of art including Picasso and Van Gogh.
