Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Yonkers District Curriculum
The Language Arts curriculum reflects the New York State Learning Standards emphasizing regular opportunities to read, write, speak, and listen in order to develop self-aware learners who are knowledgeable about their own writing. In Social Studies, students examine various ideas important to democratic society, including freedom of speech and religion, and the right to vote. Students also discuss varying viewpoints on critical issues in history, including the role and scope of government.
The Math curriculum also develops students' ability to be self-aware, especially with the adoption of Standard Three, which expects that students be proficient with the skills of math, be able to communicate with equations and reasoning, and to use new tools to become problem solvers. The Science curriculum follows a similar framework as Math, both seeking to present tools to students which they can internalize and then use the tools to problem-solve real-life issues. Of particular emphasis in science is the ability to formulate, test, and come to conclusions about scientific phenomenon.

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: Writing Right
The biggest mistake students make when writing essays for tests (standardized or in a class) is this: Failing to answer the question. Whether the essay topic is, “Who is your hero? Why?” or “Explain the effects of the Hickey Treason on George Washington’s leadership and presidency,” the important thing is to do answer the question as thoroughly as possible. Go with the standard format of an introduction, at least three body paragraphs (with topic sentences featuring your main points), and a conclusion. Don’t be ashamed to doodle out a little prewriting if you need to—it will keep you from meandering away from your subject. Finally, be sure to read your work when you’re finish. Catch errors in wording, grammar, or punctuation, and be sure it makes sense and fulfills the requirements.
