Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Atherton District Curriculum
All students receive instruction in the core subjects of Language Arts, Math, Science, History and Social Studies, and Foreign Languages. Each subject imparts a range of thinking skills that students will use in college and career goals. The model is for a skills and strategy-based focus for instruction which is assessed on standardized tests given across California. Although a focus is the development of skills, procedural and content knowledge, teachers are able to use many instructional approaches like project-based work, group learning, or experiential learning to achieve these goals.
A major focus of the schools is on technology and how it can be used to enhance learning and give students an opportunity to create. It is through the analytic skills that students develop in Language Arts, and the problem-solving skills developed in Math, and the process-oriented thinking learned in Science that students have the tools necessary to accomplish their goals.

Atherton District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The curriculum used in the districts of Atherton is designed to put all students on a path of being college-ready upon graduation. The goal is to establish a foundation of knowledge by building skills in each subject at each grade level. The elementary curriculum introduces students to a wide range of topics within a subject and while in high school the classes are more specific and require the use of skills gained at the elementary and middle school level.
We currently cover the following Atherton-area school district: Los Lomitas Elementary School District, Menlo Park City School District, Redwood City School District, Sequoia Union High School District.

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.
