Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Bakersfield District Curriculum
Other subjects are similarly broken down into their core topics. In Math, the curriculum details the essential skills students use in numerical operations, algebra, geometry and measurement, and statistics and probability during all grades The Sciences describe the different major learning areas - earth science, environmental science, biology, chemistry, physics and technology - and enumerates what the expectations for learning in these subjects are. All classes and programs that students take have a curriculum that describes what students will learn. This will build knowledge and thinking skills integral to future academic and professional pursuits.

Bakersfield District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The schools in Bakerfield use curriculum adopted and developed by the state Board of Education which provides a comprehensive framework for the teaching and learning within each subject. For Math and Language Arts, the curriculum is known as the Common Core Standards. This curriculum presents the standards of learning within the subjects and explains the skills required to bring them about.
For instance, the Common Core Standards describe how the Language Arts coursework will cover reading of fiction and informational texts, writing for a range of purposes and the writing process, and critical thinking, speaking and listening skills. The sub-topics of vocabulary development, reading comprehension and analysis, writing and revising are then detailed. This allows teachers to create objectives that correspond to the curriculum and also is in alignment with statewide assessments.
We currently cover the following Bakersfield-area school district: Bakersfield City School District, Beardsley School District, Edison School District, Fairfax School District, General Shafter School District, Greenfield Union School District, Kern High School District, Lakeside Union School District, Norris School District, Panama-Buena Vista Union School District, Rio Bravo-Greeley Union School District, Rosedale Union School District, Standard School District, Vineland 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.
