Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Burbank District Curriculum
The school hopes to create knowledgeable students who understand and apply a core body of knowledge and skills across the curriculum and take responsibility for their own learning. Students are taught to read for comprehension and synthesis, use a variety of approaches and resources to collect, organize, analyze, and retain information. Students are encouraged to become critical thinkers who use critical and analytical thinking to solve problems and are able to transfer knowledge to real-world problems. Students are expected to be effective communicators who speak and write clearly.
The curriculum also encourages students to treat themselves and others with respect, to work within a variety of groups to achieve goals, and to be responsible individuals who demonstrate ethical behavior and accept responsibility for their actions. Students should also demonstrate positive choices and decision-making for their physical and emotional health.

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: The Common Application
Most students these days apply to several colleges, which means they have to fill out several applications, which can take a lot of time and effort. The Common Application is an attempt to solve this problem by providing one application that can be sent to multiple colleges. There are many benefits to this, such as the ease it provides; the Common App. tracks deadlines, application status, and required additional materials, all in one place, which is a help to students. The Common App. requires one essay, with one or two possible additional short essays. Some colleges will require additional essays, called Supplements, which can add up to a lot of work applicants. The Common App. is longer than many applications available on colleges’ websites, but the additional information given by the Common App. is beneficial for students. And some colleges have begun to use the Common App. exclusively. Some colleges will waive their application fee if students use the college’s online application, which can be a real help, since application fees can become prohibitive. So, though there are many benefits to the Common App., there are also drawbacks.
