Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Firebaugh District Curriculum
In Language Arts, reading and writing are emphasized but listening and speaking are also elements to the curriculum expectations. Students read literature and non-fiction, write about it and discuss it. These habits of reading and discussion help to raise the critical thinking, which is an intended outcome for the curriculum. Language development and the conventions of usage are also expected to be learned.
Science is organized around the development of a base of knowledge in Biology, Life and Earth Sciences, Chemistry and Physics. The process of scientific inquiry and the processes of formulating and testing hypotheses are also goals of the Science curriculum. Students are given many chances for hands-on learning and are exposed to a variety of specialized scientific topics in high school. Technology is a part of the curriculum in Science, but also as a part of the entire framework for learning. The technology emphasis is continuing to increase and students are expected to have a variety of opportunities to use, study, and innovate with technology.

Firebaugh District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The districts in Firebaugh follow an objective and standards-driven curriculum, the California Content and the Common Core Standards. These have been developed by looking at best practices nationally and internationally, ways to develop and frame the expectations for learning at each grade, and what it is that students need to be able to do in college and as professionals.
Math and Language Arts fall under the Common Core Standards as they are foundational subjects. Math uses the topics of numbers and quantities, algebra, functions, modeling, geometry, statistics and probability as a general framework where students learn basic skills that prepare them for the more advanced topics of complex numbers, vector and matrix quantities, equations and inequalities and many other areas.

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.
