Each school in the elementary system and high school system follow the Common Core Standards set forth by the Department of Education and are particularly focused on English Language Arts (ELS) and mathematics. However the schools in the Yuma school districts follow, meet and often exceed the Core Standards in all subject areas: Science, Social Studies, Computer Technology, Physical Education and Health and Fine Arts.

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: The Importance of Routine for Young Students
Human beings fear the unknown, and this is especially true for little human beings. Our little ones are still trying to find their place in the world and while they are looking, it is important that we as parents help them by creating stability and comfort in their lives. One way to help is by establishing routines and schedules. Kids need organization and need to know what is coming next, so to establish schedules and routines early on will help your child develop good habits and good behavior. These regular, established schedules and routines will decrease any anxiety and stress that your child may feel because he knows what to expect and what will come next. Soon your little one will be cleaning up after himself, getting their teeth brushed and getting pajamas on all by themselves, because that is the routine you have established and they can do it.
