Educating Our Parents: Understanding the South Lake Tahoe District Curriculum
Language Arts and Math both provide skills to understand and evaluate information. In Language Arts, students have the opportunity to read for pleasure and for information, for personal, persuasive and explanatory writing, to develop speaking fluency and to listen to others. In Math, students develop the ability to use and select computation tools, use mathematical modeling, and a range of problem-solving skills in areas as diverse as algebra and geometry.
The abilities that students develop in these two subjects help with the learning in other academic subjects like Science, History, Social Studies, Languages, the Arts, and all the electives students may take. With a range of analytic, interpretative and evaluative skills, the concepts and processes of study in these areas are supported. The intended outcome of the curricular design is for students to feel capable of taking on any complex or inter-disciplinary topic that is interesting to them.

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.
