Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Tolleson District Curriculum
In Math, the standards develop students’ abilities in the key areas of numeracy, algebra, geometry, and data analysis each year. Although during the early years, students learn what may seem simple lessons in pattern recognition, these abilities are later applied in linear equations and other algebraic functions. At the high school level, students can also take trigonometry, pre-calculus, and statistics in preparation for college level math or a technical career.
In Language Arts, the curriculum emphasizes reading, writing, listening and speaking, media viewing, and research. Research skills by learning the basics of accessing information in the library and move on to using databases specific to certain subjects to conduct research online. Students are also taught to evaluate their sources as well as properly reference sources they use in a work. As students progress in high school, independent research becomes a bigger part of their expectations and one which prepares them for college.

Tolleson District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The districts offers a rich curriculum that is in alignment with Arizona’s rigorous College and Career Readiness program. Commom Core Standards are used to teach students skills in reading, writing, and comprehension that are crucial to success in all other core classes, such as history, social studies, math and science. As students proceed through grade levels, new skills are built upon previously learned skills. In this way, not only do students learn new skills, they review earlier skills so that they have a solid foundation. When students graduate they will have gained the skills and knowledge needed for college and career opportunities.
We currently cover the following Tolleson-area school districts: Littleton Elementary School District, Tolleson Elementary School District, Tolleson Union High School District, and Union Elementary School District.
Keeping Informed: Recent Tolleson Educational News
- Enchanted Island - This is a great place for a family outing. There are many rides and other attractions as well as an antique carousel. Visitors can take a leisurely tour on the park's train to see the whole area, and plan for a nice picnic lunch and enjoy your family day.
- Katydid Insect Museum - Kids love insects; many of them do, anyway. The Katydid Insect Museum is a great place for a science field trip. This is a place where children can learn all about bugs, insects and their role in the ecosystem. Squeamish at heart might want to avoid the pleasure.
- Glendale Police Museum - The Glendale Police Museum houses the history of the police department from its founding in 1882. A trip to this museum would be not only a great school trip or family outing, but taking the time to visit would show respect to what these men and women do every day.

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: How Do I Become a Better Communicator?
Communication is definitely a learned skill and it is not an easy one. Communication is complex and involves more than talking. The most important thing to remember is to listen actively. Understand what the other person is saying. Repeat what they say to make sure you did understand. Try not to create arguments or “come backs” in your head while you should be listening. When you are talking watch the other person's face because expressions will tell you if what you are saying is being accepted or understood. Also watch body posture, and be aware of your own body language too. Be willing to listen, showing that you respect the person you are speaking with and what they have to say, and you will be better able to carry on meaningful discourse on any subject.
