The requirements for English and Language Arts call for more informational and complex textual reading material, the ability for students to write critical analyses of reading material, the development of vocabulary and the ability to use correct English. From the early grades on students are presented with teaching that focuses on being able to read critically, write different types of compositions for different audiences, present oral presentations, be able to evaluate information, and solve problems.
In Math, students begin with basic in addition to gaining proficiency in fractions and decimals. From 6th grade on the focus in Math turns to the fundamentals of Algebra, Geometry, Probability and Statistics.

Long Beach District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Long Beach School District is implementing the new Common Core State Standards which all public schools in the State of New York are to have implemented by the end of 2013. The new Common Core Curriculum Framework is being adopted across the United States in an effort to bring uniformity and standardization to school curriculum. The curriculum provides a series of objectives in the major topics of each subject; for instance, detailing the skills students should develop in algebra or geometry, and explains them in terms that allow teachers to determine the best way to teach each topic.
We currently cover the following Long Beach-area school district: Long Beach Public Schools.

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.
