Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Susanville District Curriculum
The curriculum in Math details the skills of numeracy, algebra, geometry and data analysis each year. In the Sciences, the curriculum describes the skills in earth science, biology, chemistry, physics, environmental science and technology. The curriculum for Language Arts teaches students how to reading literary and informational texts, writing for a range of purposes, using a writing process, and listening and speaking with critical thinking skills.
Through the technology curriculum, the manner in which technology improves productivity is examined. Students learn how to use various tools, including software programs, to complete assignments. The ways in which technology improves economic production is also analyzed. Students look at cultural changes that have come about, particularly in the last decade, as social media has become an increasingly integrated aspect of life. Ethics are discussed as well, with students identifying ways that they can utilize these technologies in a manner that is responsible.

Susanville Area District Curriculum We Follow
The curriculum used in Susanville is a standards-based framework for teaching and learning. Each subject has a curriculum guideline that specifies the skills and knowledge students will develop each year. The yearly knowledge compounds upon itself so that students develop a deep knowledge in their subjects. All core subjects help students to develop critical thinking skills like analysis, problem-solving and process-oriented thinking. By using prior knowledge to deepen subject knowledge year-by-year, students are required to use reflective thinking which helps to bring about all these cognitive processes.
We currently cover the following Susanville-area school district: Johnstonville Elementary School District, Lassen Union High School District, Richmond Elementary School District, and Susanville 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: Music Improves Education
Music is an integral component of the K-12 curriculum that offers students an opportunity to express their creativity and expand their knowledge and understanding about cultures from around the world. Music offers many academic and behavioral benefits as well. Students that take part in musical studies demonstrate higher achievement in math than their peers, due in part to the analytical nature of musical studies. This improved performance in math extends to the ACT and SAT, where music students consistently outscore students that do not participate in music courses. There are behavioral benefits as well. There is a positive correlation between musical studies and improved attendance in school. There are also fewer discipline referrals, from reported for students that take part in music. As a result of these benefits, many colleges and universities place music as one of the primary academic subject areas in which students must participate in order to fully meet their potential.
