Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Vacaville District Curriculum
In Science, the content areas of Biology and Life Science, Earth Science, Chemistry, and Physics provide the base of scientific knowledge students are expected to learn and the curriculum focuses on student's ability to investigate and experiment within these fields. Through these experiences, they are prepared for the lab sciences in high school and in-depth classes in Environmental Science, Physics, or Technology.
The layout of the curriculum moves students from their elementary grades toward high school by building abilities and understanding. When students are in high school they are faced with opportunities for learning which call upon them to investigate and solve problems, and communicate their findings. They are prepared to do so by the skills learned each year.

Vacaville District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The schools in Vacaville use a curriculum which has been designed to provide clear goals for learning while also describing the broad concepts and thinking skills that students are expected to develop. The yearly progression intends that students master new abilities each year which they are expected to apply to the next level of subject-learning.
For instance, the Math curriculum pinpoints the skills students will develop in their elementary and middle school grades through increasingly in-depth study of numerical and algebraic operations, measurement, geometry, and analysis of data. The material students learn brings about the problem-solving and reasoning skills needed for the more advanced Math courses in high school.
In Language Arts, students are expected to learn literacy and communication skills that covers all modes of reading, writing, and personal expression. An awareness of the structure of language, grammar, and how to decode meaning are basic skills students develop. They use these in both reading literature and non-fiction, and in their written assignments. Writing is central to the Language Arts curriculum and students are asked to develop the ability to write for many different purposes, and to develop processes for editing and revising their work.
We currently cover the following Vacaville-area school district: Vacaville Unified School District.

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.
