Request Free, One-on-one Academic Assessment
Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Sebastopol District CurriculumMath has been designed to teach students how to understand number systems and quantities, and to manipulate and problem-solve with increasingly complex mathematical processes. By high school, students will be using modeling techniques, expressions and equations, abstract reasoning, argumentation and proofs in their math classes. In Science, students are offered a hands-on learning experience in Biology, Earth and Life Science, Physics, and in subjects like Chemistry, Environmental Science, Technology, and pre-Engineering. These subjects require the use of the measurement and data analysis skills also taught in Math. Generally, the more advanced topics will require students to bring the knowledge gained in other subjects into the new subject. Students will be expected to write and collaborate on projects, calling upon them to develop planning skills and initiative. Many teachers will also require portfolio-based evidence of student growth and will ask students to design a project that can provide evidence of their academic growth.

Sebastopol District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The school districts of Sebastopol all follow the framework adopted by the state of California and is enumerated through the California Content Standards and the Common Core Standards. These are both framework documents that provide the full scope and sequence of learning objectives for students across the grade span. They are used in all subjects, electives, and specially designed programs to guide student learning.
The goals for the Language Arts curriculum are sweeping in their scope. Students are expected to develop the critical thinking habits of writers, readers, and participants in discussions about events and ideas. The comprehension, analysis, and evaluation of texts is one major strand of the curriculum. Teachers are able to model strategies to develop these habits of readership and proficiency in them are essential for tackling other subjects. Writing is also a major emphasis in the curriculum and students will be expected to develop written work and use editing strategies, including peer editing, to improve their written expression.
We currently cover the following Sebastopol-area school district: Oak Grove School District, Gravenstein Union School District, Sebastopol Union School District, Twin Hills School District, West Sonoma County Union High School District.

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.
