Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Portales District Curriculum
Students in the public schools in Portales, New Mexico follow the state mandated Common Core Curriculum Framework which emphasizes fluency in both Mathematics and English and Language Arts (ELA). Students must also pass required reading and mathematics proficiency exams for graduation. In English and Language Arts (ELA) students are expected to learn reading, writing, speaking and listening in correct English. Teachers provide reading material including both literature and informational reading in an effort to make students familiar with the type of reading they may encounter.
In Mathematics, students focus on the mastery of core mathematical subjects including computation, algebra, geometry, statistics, measurement and probability. The curriculum is progressive with students building on the skills they have learned the previous year. The goal is for students to be critically literate in both Mathematics and English when they complete high school.

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.
