For the 8th consecutive year, all the students whom I tutored for the New York State Common Core examinations, have passed. All have been promoted to the next grade, and or graduated. Some of the students have received Academic Awards from their schools. Tutoring takes much diligence, patience and determination. There may be good and bad days, depending on how the students feel, but we did it. I could not have done it without the parents, who are committed to their children's success. I am very delighted.
There are many posts every year from parents who seek either for a tutor or for a teacher to make sure their kids would pass the test. B&N has very good curriculum books full of educational material to practice for the test. Those books are rightly called the "Complete Curriculum." All what the parents should do is to select a grade level. Those books go as high as up to the 5th grade.
While the math problems are easy to follow, for both reading and writing I am offering my help.
1) Learn well in school
2) If you fall behind, ask for help
3) Do not be afraid to ask a question
4) Start to study for the tests early
5) If you fall behind, ask for help
