Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Solvang District Curriculum
The Math curriculum organizes its subject matter into numbers and quantities, data analysis, algebraic operations, and geometric functions as the major skills students develop through eighth grade. As students move into high school, these topics become more advanced and students are able to take trigonometry and pre-calculus. In Science, investigation and experimentation are highlighted throughout the topics of biology, life science, earth and environmental science, and technology. Science, in particular, has seen increased attention and there are growing offerings within the Science Department.
All range of programs like those designed to support students who are learning English, and students who require an alternative setting, will have a curriculum that aims to provide high quality instructional objectives. Students become prepared through the learning strategies they gain, and the ways of solving problems and communicating ideas they develop, to take on subjects that are of personal interest.

Solvang District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The school districts that students in Solvang attend follow the framework laid out in the California Content Standards. These are framework documents that explain the goals of the subject, approaches to learning, suggested sources, and targeted expectations for learning within each subject.
The subject areas are designed as a progression of knowledge gained so that students become highly skillful in the areas of communication, critical literacy, choosing problem-solving methods, and understanding universal concepts. Language Arts provides students with the literacy skills to comprehend literature and non-fiction and be able to analyze, interpret, and evaluate its content. Writing is a critical focus, and students are provided with strategies for writing for different purposes. Language conventions are taught and students are expected to write using formal English.

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.
