Educating Our Parents: Understanding the American Fork District Curriculum
In Language Arts, students are introduced to a variety of informational and literary texts beginning in kindergarten, are guided to gradually increase the difficulty of the texts they read, and are asked to become critical readers of those texts. They are also asked to analyze and explain their analysis of the texts, so that they will have greater comprehension and ability to process information.
At the elementary level, the development of core skills are taught and reinforced. Students use leveled readers throughout, and are encouraged to use supplemental programs to reinforce skills at home and build competencies. Similarly, in mathematics they work from basic arithmetic through the introduction of the concepts underpinning algebraic, geometric, and statistical reasoning. The high school requires that students take two years of a core science, such as earth science, biology, chemistry, or physics. They must also take one year of an applied science, such as zoology, botany, or astronomy.

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.

Chalk Talk: Extracurricular Science Clubs
Science-based extracurricular activities, like Science Olympiad or Physics Club, are increasingly popular in the schools. In fact, they are some of the most fun you can have in a school program. Science extracurriculars are generally organized around hands-on tasks that enrich your experience of science, and give you a real feel for what a science or technology career might be like. They are great resume-builders for college, and also usually a fun place to hang out and, often, get to engineer controlled explosions, collapsing bridges, and other exciting events.
