Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Stockton District Curriculum
In English/Language Arts the Common Core Standards describe what skills go into reading informational texts or developing a writing process. In English and Language Arts a student needs to master: reading literature, reading informational texts, reading foundational skills, writing, and speaking and listening, and language usage. The Common Core emphasis is on critical thinking, problem solving, and analytical skills for college, career and life. In Math, the Common Core provides descriptions of what students need to be able to do in the areas of numerical operations, algebraic functions, geometry and measurement, and data analysis using statistics or probability.
In the Social Sciences, a student will need to master the ability to communicate, complete data analysis, demonstrate awareness, and develop their ability to acquire information. There are six content standards. These standards are in: culture, economics, geography, government, civics, history, individual and group interactions. All these skills are covered on a grade by grade level so that learning progresses and deepens over the years.

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.

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: Building Excitement in Science
Some children look at science as something they need to finish to be promoted to the next grade. Parents can help to build the excitement concerning science through a few hands-on experiences. One way to help is to let a child take apart an old radio, or perhaps give them a kit to build one of their own. Parents need to remember that the child is exploring to help build their curiosity, however, it may be a good idea to set ground rules so they do not try to take apart a laptop computer. Another way to bring science to life is to watch a science fiction movie together and look for all the science that could not work. In addition, there are many museums that offer hands-on activities that can make a child think of ways they can further their exploration at home.
