Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Taft District Curriculum
Math has been developed to provide students with increasingly advanced skills in areas like number operations, geometry and measurement, algebraic functions, and data analysis. In high school, students move towards abstract reasoning using expressions and equations, proofs and models to come to a precise and accurate solution. The Sciences are expanding in scope, although the basis of instruction in the concepts, principles, and processes of the basic sciences is the foundation students start with. There are many advanced offerings in Science at the high school level, and students will need to use their literacy and problem-solving skills towards these studies.

SchoolTutoring Academy’s tutoring programs for Taft students start with a free academic assessment with an Academic Director. Our flagship tutoring programs are available for $199.99/month which include regular one-on-one tutoring, academic mentorship, bi-monthly progress reports, learning profiles, and parental conference calls.
Taft District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The aim of the curriculum used in Taft’s schools is to provide high standards for all students, a clear set of guidelines for instructional planning, a framework that prepares students for college and career, and to provide for the development of critical thinking and problem-solving skills. Literacy, communication, problem-solving, and attention to process are central goals for the whole of the curriculum, and these goals are supported by the grade-level expectations for learning skills and content in each subject.
Language Arts centers on the literacy skills students require for understanding fictional genres and non-fiction texts. Students read a diverse selection and are taught to develop strategies to read deeply, respond, connect, and use information to solve problems. Writing is expected in all forms from personal and reflective to more complex analytic or expository writing. Language conventions that instill formal English are taught and students are expected to use the language properly on formal writing tasks.

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.
