Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Avondale District Curriculum
For English/Language Arts students in the early grades, the standards require that students learn listening and reading skills as well as writing and comprehension. Students not only read literature, they also read informational texts. Standards are more intense for grades 6-12 because the majority of literature classes must deal with poetry and literary pieces. The informational reading skills must be learned in other core classes like history and science. In grades 9-12, writing becomes more varied with the need for students to write well-supported arguments and essays that are explanatory and informative.
The College And Career Readiness standards in Arizona include the teaching of key concepts and students' abilities to conceptualize. The skills of value placement and other critical components of math, building each new skill on skills already learned. Students learn a range of problem-solving methods in algebra and geometry and can also pursue more advanced math like trigonometry or statistics.

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: Maximizing the Tutor Experience
Tutors have an important job when it comes to relating with the multitude of student learning styles and backgrounds they face each day. It is critical that a tutor understands how a student learns best and can harness the natural abilities to help improve in areas of weakness. However, a child is a whole person and taking a holistic approach to relating to young people can make a big difference. In order to really connect with students, it is important to connect them culturally. Find out about their culture and languages. Show an interest in their family life and their communities. When you show an interest you will appreciate your students better and their self image will be built up. This will also play a role in improving their academic success.
