Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Calistoga District Curriculum
In Language Arts, skills in language are developed and applied to reading and writing. Students read all types of literature and non-fiction texts and are required to respond in written and oral responses. Writing is a major strand of the curriculum; students are taught to develop their writing and use brainstorming techniques, drafting and revising strategies. The subjects of History, Social Studies, Science and Technology are all supported by the problem-solving, literacy and communication abilities developed in Math and Language Arts.
Skills and knowledge may be taught through direct instruction, inquiry or independently-guided projects, or hands-on learning. The use of different teaching strategies is important as teachers need to cover a wide range of skills, facts and concepts within a year. The end-of-year and standardized assessments that students take require their proficiency in the exact expectations laid out in the curriculum and students will need to be able able to use that knowledge in their next year's classes.

Calistoga District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
In Calistoga, students are educated through a standards-based instructional model. This model directs teachers as to the specific goals for grade-level teaching, however the range of teaching strategies, projects, assignments, and assessments used in class is created by the teachers at the school. The standards can be found in the California Content Standards and Core Curriculum Standards, which are subject-specific framework documents that provide the precise learning goals.
The curriculum for Math education is organized around the development of problem-solving skills which become more advanced as students move into their high school math classes. With the elementary foundation in math, the expectations require that students be able to use mathematic models, analyze data using different relational strategies, and work through problems with an eye to precision and accuracy in details.
We currently cover the following Calistoga-area school district: Calistoga Unified School District.

SchoolTutoring Academy Increased My SAT Score By 200 Points

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.
