Educating Our Parents: Understanding the South Tucson District Curriculum
Students start out in Kindergarten learning the basics of letter recognition and sound. All students learn the beginnings of listening, comprehension and critical thinking skills. They also learn to recognize numbers and their operations. These skills are built upon in each progressing grade, so that during middle school students are introduced to some basic ideas from algebra and geometry.
The high school curriculum advances many critical thinking skills that students are expected to develop and increasingly integrates learning between subjects. The Language Arts curriculum is designed to teach students reading, writing, communication and research skills which they will use in other courses. The ability to properly reference sources, evaluate the quality of information, and draw upon ideas to create an original thesis are staples of learning during these years.

South Tucson District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
South Tucson schools work to ensure that their curriculum adheres to Arizona’s Common Core Standards. Arizona’s College and Career Readiness program further enhances these guidelines by providing a succinct set of goals that students should achieve to be ready for post-secondary life. While in high school, students have a number of opportunities to take courses that relate to their particular pursuits, be it advanced academics, to an arts based program, or a high tech learning opportunity. The goal is to prepare all of Arizona’s students with the college and career skills they will need upon graduation.
We currently cover the following South Tucson-area school district: Tucson Unified School District.

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 Best Way to Study for a Test?
Test time can be stressful because you want to do well and likely have other projects or tests as well. There are different ways that work well for different students. Make sure you have a quiet place away from distractions of other people. Make up some note cards that have facts or concepts on them. Get someone to ask questions from the cards. If that does not appeal to you, just have someone quiz you from your text. Some people make songs out of their facts. Sometimes setting the facts to music helps people learn. Make sure you take good notes in class and review them regularly. Give yourself plenty of time to study. Don't give in to the temptation to do an all-night cram session, instead, studying well in advance of an exam is always the best way.
