Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Colusa District Curriculum
Math and Science, which are subjects that resources are increasingly focused on, have been developed so that students learn the process of discovery and finding mathematical certainty. In elementary and middle school, students learn the fundamental skills in these subjects so that in high school they are prepared to take on the more advanced subject-area coursework. For instance, in high school Physics courses students learn about principles of motion and force, energy, thermodynamics, and mechanical and electromagnetic waves.
Students are offered a number of unique learning opportunities, particularly once they are in high school. Students in Colusa have a number of courses that can introduce them to advanced topics in science and technology, engineering, and the social sciences. These courses help students develop a true sense of their goals for advanced learning and career pursuits, and the type of working they are capable of doing.
Contact our Academic Directors Today at 1-877-545-7737 to Discuss your Child's Strengths and Areas for Improvement.
SchoolTutoring Academy’s tutoring programs for Colusa students start with a free academic assessment with an Academic Director. Our flagship tutoring programs are available for $199.99/month which include regular one-on-one tutoring, academic mentorship, bi-monthly progress reports, learning profiles, and parental conference calls.
Colusa District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Colusa’s schools follow the California Content Standards which detail the framework of learning expectations and outcomes for students across all subject areas from kindergarten to twelfth grade. The goals of preparing students for college and career are central principles, but also that students are able to use technological and global knowledge to solve problems and think innovatively are goals of the curriculum.
Language Arts has been designed so that students develop strong literacy and communication skills. The curriculum focuses on the development of language skills, understanding of conventions, recognizing and creating structure in texts, and the ability to comprehend and analyze written information. Students are expected to develop their listening and speaking skills within this framework, which is accomplished through class discussion and presentations. Students are asked to write and develop foundational abilities through personal forms of writing, but will be expected to conduct research and write analytic papers in high school.
We currently cover the following Colusa-area school district: Colusa Unified School District.

- Intro to Aerospace Science - Students at the high school are able to take a course designed to introduce them to Aerospace Science. There are courses beyond the introductory level for students who are interested in more advanced learning. The class is designed not only to give students some basics in aerospace science, but also its technology, engineering and even some history are introduced.
- AP Calculus/AP Government Project - In an innovative cross-curricular project, students in the AP Calculus and AP Government class collaborate on a project called, "Making sense of the 2010 Census." Students are able to bring their mathematical knowledge to understanding how the census was created, and to recognize the challenges of such a large-scale endeavor. In addition, how the census influences governmental decisions is an area that students study and are able to formulate informed opinions about. This culimates in a project presenting findings based on research by the students.
- Early Assessment Program (EAP) - The Early Assessment Program is designed for students who plan to enter the California State University system and will want to opt out of basic Math and English requirements based on the proficiency they gained in high school. Students are able to take the EAP during their statewide testing. Information is provided by counselors, and for students who succeed on that portion of their assessment, they will be not be required to take basic level Math and English in their first year at the CSU they attend.
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.
