Sacramento Test Scores

In addition to various national exams such as the ACT and SAT, Sacramento students also take state exams as part of the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP). These exams are designed to test student achievement in Common Core curriculum in various subject areas, including language arts, math, and science.

In addition to helping prepare students for the many standardized exams they will face as part of their educational journey, a personal tutor can help your child fill in any learning gaps throughout the school year in a wide variety of subjects. No matter which Sacramento area school your child attends, there is a nearby tutor who can help them attain their academic potential.

Some of the top high schools in the Sacramento area include:

In most of the largest schools in Sacramento, class sizes exceed twenty students per teacher. Some classrooms even have more than thirty students per instructor. This can make learning new material very difficult for some students. Working with a personal tutor gives your child a significant learning advantage. In a typical classroom, the teacher must move from one concept to the next in a prescribed order, even if some students have not yet fully mastered it. A private tutor, on the other hand, can take the time to review material that your child needs additional help with before moving ahead. This extra attention can make a huge difference in the long-term academic success of your child.

If you aren’t sure how many students are in each of your child’s classes, you can look at the data below to get a rough estimate. You will find the student-to-teacher ratios for the ten largest high schools in the Sacramento area.

Even before your child graduates from high school, they will need to begin preparing for college admissions.

If your child still isn’t sure where they’d like to go to college, you can begin the search with the top universities near Sacramento.

Today was the first session with the student, so we spent the majority of the time going over the diagnostic test. We also spent a little bit of time talking about a strategy moving forward. It seems that the biggest issue is time management, so we will work on faster approaches to certain math problems, and also talk about how to interpret graphs and tables on the science section.

The student and I prepared for her geometry final. She understood the theories and concepts well, but had trouble with working through proofs and identifying rules that were associate with the concepts. Our main focus was to work through problems, then apply the reasoning for the correct answer by providing the theorem and proof associated with it. We also worked through properties of congruent triangles, relationships of angles, and basic intro geometry. At the end of the session we discussed her goal for studying until her final and I gave her an additional resource to reference in case she needed more clarification. It was a very productive session.
