Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Santa Clara District Curriculum
The curriculum in Language Arts covers a lot of territory: reading, writing, speaking and listening, media viewing, and research skills are all covered during a students education. In reading, the goal is to have students read a wide variety of genres so they are exposed to different styles and points of views and are able to analyze different types of texts. The development of a strong vocabulary is also focused on and students are expected to use context to determine meaning from words as well as recognize the authors' purpose.
The Math curriculum is aimed at building skills in numerical operations, algebra, geometry, statistics and probability, and preparing students for advanced math such as trigonometry or calculus. In the early years, the emphasis on pattern recognition helps students prepare for the work they will do with different types of equations in algebra. The focus on shape recognition and spatial awareness is intended to help students build the skills to work on geometry problems in high school.

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: What Is the Common Core?
The Common Core Standards are a nationally developed curriculum that aims to provide the learning objectives in Math and Language Arts that will comprehensively prepare students for all learning they do as well as the expectations they will need to meet in college and the workplace. The goal of the curriculum is to organize the subjects by strands, for instance in Math the topic of algebra is a strand, and to ensure that students meet learning objectives during each grade level that will allow them the depth and breadth of understanding needed to perform higher level work. Likewise, in Language Arts, reading comprehension and writing abilities are developed gradually but with a deeper ability to perform more complex work in the long run.
