Educating Our Parents: Understanding the White Rock District Curriculum
The Los Alamos Public School District has recently implemented the Common Core Curriculum standards that have been approved for use in the state of New Mexico and most other states in the country. The new standards focus on providing a set standard of educational attainment for students in the areas of English and Language Arts and Mathematics. In Mathematics, the focus is on students learning core math skills such as computation, algebra, geometry, proportional reasoning, measurement, and statistics so that they are math literate by the time they graduate high school.
In English and Language Arts, students are expected to learn to read, write, speak and listen and be able to communicate effectively both vocally and in writing. Students are exposed to different types of reading material such as literature and informational text so they are prepared for the types of reading they might do in college or on the job. In addition, students work on gaining knowledge in the areas of critical analysis, reading for content, and problem solving.

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.
