Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Fairfax District Curriculum
The core subjects are at the heart of expectations for student learning, however there are no limits to the instructional approaches that can be taken. Students learn in a variety of different ways, some enjoy inquiry-based learning, while others do well with direct instruction and opportunities to apply that learning. However, all students are expected to become proficient in their core classes because they lay the foundation needed to be prepared for college, career, and daily life.
In Language Arts, the focus is on language and communication with the goal of making students critical readers who are able to express themselves clearly in writing. Writing is one of the major strands in the curriculum and students will write reflectively, creatively, and in forms like expository, or informational, and persuasive. The Language Arts curriculum does specify grade-level expectations in grammar and conventions of the language.

Fairfax District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The California Content and Core Curriculum Standards provide the framework for the instructional processes at the districts for Fowler’s students. These are curricular framework developed with many purposes in mind: students are intended to achieve a deep knowledge base along with the thinking skills that arise from each subject, the standards and expectations for learning are intended to be clear so that all students receive the same high quality expectations, and the learning should be measurable through assessments that accurately reflect what students should have learned in their classes.
Math and Language Arts are considered core classes because the basics, and increasingly complex knowledge, which students develop in each class supports all other content areas. In Math, problem-solving methods are taught so that students can approach a problem and select from a number of different approaches to solve it. Abstract and quantitative reasoning are developed through the operations, functions, patterns, and structures that students begin to recognize.

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.
