Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Watsonville District Curriculum
In Language Arts, the framework is designed to raise critical awareness through the development of language and reading strategies. The process of writing, and the many purposes for writing, are also taught so that the skills and strategies students develop are applicable to both reading and writing. Other areas of communication like listening and oral fluency are also encompassed by the Language Arts framework.
This model of laying out key principles and a clear progression of skills for students to develop helps establish accountability and consistency in instruction. Many different instructional approaches such as hands-on learning, direct instruction, and independent study may be used to accomplish the goals of the curriculum, but its use ensures that all students receive the same high quality standard of education.

Watsonville District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The local schools use a curricular framework across the subjects that follows the format of the Common Core Standards for Math and Language Arts. The framework designates the learning expectations that students should meet, the standards of practice and thought which is developed in each subject, and the grade-by-grade progression of skills that students will learn.
In Math, the subject seeks to develop a number of analytic and reasoning skills using computational tools and strategies. The development of abstract and quantitative reasoning, the use of mathematical models, the use of tools appropriate and precisely, and the ability to recognize patterns and structures are among the higher-order abilities which students develop. This is accomplished through the mathematical topics of number sense, algebra, geometry, measurement, data analysis and operational thinking.
We currently cover the following Watsonville-area school district: Pajaro Valley 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.

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.
