Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lynwood District Curriculum
Students are informed of what they should have learned by the conclusion of each school year in each class. Classes focus on critical reading and critical thinking skills. Students read complex texts of varying types and formats. They read to understand the texts on a basic level but also to examine them for structure, authorial intent, and validity. Students are given guiding questions to answer and to spark discussion. They come up with ideas and theses and gather evidence from their reading to support their theses.
Science literacy is also emphasized, and students consider scientific problems and issues with real-world applications and situations. Students are also offered support to achieve each standard. Teachers modify their lesson plans to fit the individual needs of their students, whether that means advanced work to keep students challenged, or remedial work to help students catch up to grade level. The school also offers many extracurricular activities for students so that they can pursue interests in addition to academics.
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.

Chalk Talk: Restricted Early Action
Restricted Early Action is an early application, usually due November 15, which restricts students from applying to other colleges until they received a decision regarding admission. It’s a rare application type, more of a predecessor to the more popular and more recent Early Decision type, and most colleges that offer Early Action don’t restrict it. Not many colleges offer Restricted Early Action applications, but those that do tend to favor it heavily. This means that students who apply Restricted Early Action have a much higher acceptance rate. They’re also competing against fewer other applicants. Colleges tend to favor students willing to apply Restricted Early Action, which also helps. Once they’ve been accepted, students are free to apply elsewhere, though few do.
