Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Sun Valley District Curriculum
The curriculum ensures that students are able not only to be successful in other subjects, but also to be successful in college and chosen careers. Having good reading and writing skills is necessary for all school subjects. In Kindergarten students learn letter recognition and individual letter sounds. They also learn how to write the letters and learn the sound of each letter. Students learn to listen to stories and are tested on their comprehension by answering questions about the story or being shown a picture and telling the part of the story that picture represents.
By the time they reach high schools, students are reading various styles of literature and using the literature to make connections with real life. They write across diverse disciplines and they learn the art of speaking to groups. The district curricular goals put a lot of emphasis toward teaching students good reading and writing skills, along with critical thinking skills.

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: How Do I Know If My Child Needs a Tutor?
If your child is having trouble in school and you and his/her teacher have exhausted all options, you may want to consider a tutor. A good tutor can give your child individual tutoring, whereas, the teacher may not able to give much individual attention. Due to the number of students in the classroom the teacher simply does not have the time to give one on one intense tutoring that your child may need. A tutor can come to your home to help your child, or you can get online tutoring. If your child is really having a lot of trouble, finding a tutor who works well with your child will be a good choice.
