Surprise District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Dysart Unified School District follows the standards set forth by the Arizona Department of Education. In organizing their curriculum and assessments, the school district followed the framework of the Common Core State Standards Initiative and developed a rich, broad-based curriculum at every grade level. In the elementary schools, the Core Standards of English Language Arts (ELA) are met in Reading, Writing, Speaking and Listening, as the curriculum is based on themes throughout the school year. The Math curriculum is based on strategies that are integrated into every lesson for every grade. By the end of the elementary school the students begin moving towards algebra, geometry, trigonometry and pre-calculus to prepare them for High School Math.
We currently cover the following Surprise-area school districts: Dysart Unified School District.

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.

Chalk Talk: The Importance of a Health Station in the Classroom
During the winter months, we unfortunately also approach the cold and flu season. It is important for our school children to try their best to protect themselves from germs during the school day, and having a "health station" in the classroom is a great start in preventing the spread of germs. If a teacher is lucky enough to have a sink in the classroom, make sure it is stocked with enough soap and paper towels. Be sure that there is a lined trash can in the immediate vicinity, there should be tissues and pump hand-sanitizer right there for any student who need to blow their nose. That way, they can discard the tissue and immediately use the hand sanitizer. If there is no sink in classroom, set up the tissues, rubbish bin and hand sanitizer in a designated area of the classroom as the "health station."
The disinfectant wipes are also great to wipe down computer keyboards, door knobs, light switches and items in the classroom that are community property. Have extra boxes of tissues, paper towels, hand- sanitizer, trash bags in a closet or storage space if possible.
