Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Los Alamos District Curriculum
The Common Core Curriculum provides a standardized approach to curriculum with an emphasis on providing skills that students will be able to use in the workforce. In Math the focus is on students learning a finite number of topics in an intensive educational approach. Students learn about computation, algebra, geometry, statistics and probability in a progressive manner, with the curriculum building on skills learned in the previous year.
In English and Language Arts students learn the basics of reading, writing, listening and speaking so that by graduation from high school they are fluent in using the English language. Reading material includes both literature and informational text so that students are exposed to the type of reading they might need to do on the job. In both Mathematics and English and Language Arts, students concentrate on developing the skills they will need to pursue further education or to be successful in the workplace.

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.
