Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Upland District Curriculum
In English/Language Arts, communication is the central curricular focus. Reading strategies for non-fiction and literary texts are taught and writing strategies that target different goals for written expression and different tastes of an audience are focused on each year. This is accomplished by also providing a foundation in skills to develop vocabulary and by conveying an understanding of the grammatical structure of the language. The frameworks provide an all-encompassing educational experience to students and one in which critical skills developed are always able to inform future academic challenges.
In Language Arts, students learn about how to read literary and informational texts, write for a range of purposes, use a writing process, and to listen and speak with critical thinking skills. This broad framework for all subjects prepares students for the next steps in their education.

Upland District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Upland schools use an enhanced model of curricular design in which the standards for learning are detailed with precision and can serve as the basis of instruction and assessment. Each subject is designed to impart the essential knowledge within the subjects and to do so in such a way that subject-area skills and strategies are developed yearly and built upon in following years.
In Mathematics, the content areas of numeracy, measurement, algebraic and geometric functions, and advanced topics like Discrete Math are the linear progression that students follow. Skill sets are developed yearly in all the basic forms of math and students are prepared to handle the complex topics within the subject at the high school level.
Similarly, in Science students are taught about the skills of being a scientist and the knowledge that has been developed in fields like biology, earth and environment, physics, and chemistry. The foundation continues to grow so that students are prepared to take on classes in fields such as engineering and information technology in high school.
We currently cover the following Upland-area school district: Upland 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.
