Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Merced District Curriculum
For English/Language Arts and Mathematics, the schools follow the Common Core Standards. These cover the areas of reading, writing, listening and speaking and develop the skills in students so that critical thinking and analytic skills develop over time. Similarly, in math, the expectations are laid out for the same purpose and cover the content areas of numeracy, algebra, geometry, and data analysis (statistics, probability). Students also explore various ecosystems as part of their life science studies. They take part in observations of the world around them, and examine the ways that living things can cause substantial changes to Earth’s environment.
Other subjects and programs like the World Languages, History, Advanced Placement (AP), Technology Programs, Environmental Programs and many more each have curriculum that describes the skills and knowledge that students will develop. These standards are measurable goals that assessments within the subject, or on an AP Exam, are able to assess to make sure that students are meeting the expectations.

Merced District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The schools in Merced use curriculum adopted and developed by the Department of Education that provide a standards-based framework for teaching and learning. Each subject has a curriculum that describes what it is a student should become capable of doing on a year-by-year basis. Physical fitness is emphasized, with students devising fitness plans that include a daily schedule for physical activities. Students work extensively on acquiring knowledge of effective collaboration and communication skills, and also become versed in utilizing technology to solve real world problems. Character education programs further students’ development by teaching them respect for diversity and improving empathy for others.

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: Conflict Resolution
No matter the age of the children, there are going to be arguments and parents have doubts as to how to help. One of the first things the parent needs to do is to take a deep breath and stay calm. Then go to the child’s level and the parent needs to let the child know that they see how they are feeling. The next thing is to ask “what” questions to see what happened. Parents should use clear words to repeat what was said. The child should then see if they have any idea for how to solve the problem. When the children get back together, the parent needs to stay close at hand to make sure the children stay calm. If this happens, praise the child so they know you are proud of the way they solved the problem.
