Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Menlo Park District Curriculum
In Language Arts students are taught how to read literary and informational texts, how to write using a process, and other communication skills. These skills build on themselves in such a way as to bring about critical thinking and analytic skills.
Programs that cover a wide range of subjects, or take a different approach to the teaching of the subjects, like International Baccalaureate (IB), Advanced Placement (AP) or Career-Oriented Programs also have curriculum that describe the expected outcomes.
Contact our Academic Directors Today at 1-877-545-7737 to Discuss your Child's Strengths and Areas for Improvement.
SchoolTutoring Academy’s tutoring programs for Menlo Park students start with a free academic assessment with an Academic Director. Our flagship tutoring programs are available for $199.99/month which include regular one-on-one tutoring, academic mentorship, bi-monthly progress reports, learning profiles, and parental conference calls.
Menlo Park District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The schools within Menlo Park follow a curricular model that provides an overview of the skills and knowledge students will gain in each subject. These skill sets are what comprise the learning objectives and are the outcomes to which teachers align instruction and assessment.
For the core academic subjects of Math and Language Arts, the schools use the Common Core Standards. These standards describe the major areas of learning within the subjects and the specific skills required for students to become proficient in each. In Math, students develop skills in numeracy, algebra, geometry, and data analysis. The Sciences cover earth science, biology, chemistry, physics, technology and environmental sciences.
We currently cover the following Menlo Park-area school district: Las Lomitas Elementary School District, Menlo Park City School District, Ravenswood City School District, Redwood City School District.

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.
