Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Phoenix District Curriculum
The Phoenix area school districts strive for excellence in their mathematics curriculum and adhere to the state core standards. At its base, the curriculum stresses understanding of key concepts in organization and problem-solving, based on real-world relevance. These schools expect their students to be internationally competitive in mathematics and technology.
Phoenix area schools emphasize that science education should be an active, dynamic process where a student is engaged in the process of learning. This philosophy crosses over into all areas of curriculum, arts, technology, languages, physical education and health.
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 Phoenix 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.
Phoenix District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Phoenix area schools, although independently-run school districts, follow the standards of the Arizona Department of Education whose mission is twofold. First, every child must perform at grade level or above in mathematics, reading, writing, science and social studies, and secondly, every child must be prepared for high school and beyond.
Arizona has been successful in extending English Language Arts Common Core Standards across the curriculum to include the subjects of History, Science, Social Studies and Technology. Its purpose is to ensure that students are ready for college or career upon high school graduation. This broad-based methodology develops important skills in not only reading and writing, but essential communication skills of listening and speaking.
We currently cover the following Phoenix-area school districts: Alhambra ESD, Balsz ESD, Cartwright ESD, Cave Creek USD, Creighton ESD, Deer Valley USD, Fowler ESD, Glendale Union HSD, Isaac ESD, Kyrene ESD, Laveen ESD, Littleton ESD, Madison ESD, Maricopa CRD, Murphy ESD, Osborn ESD, Paradise Valley USD, Pendergast ESD, Phoenix ESD, Phoenix Union HSD, Riverside ESD, Roosevelt ESD, Scottsdale USD, Tempe ESD, Tempe Union HSD, Tolleson ESD, Tolleson Union HSD, Union ESD, Washington ESD and Wilson ESD.

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.
