Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Boulder City District Curriculum
Math instruction familiarizes students with the nature of math using an integration of algebra and geometry to teach operational and functional features of math like using base-ten systems and fractions. Middle school students begin working with equations and statistics, while high school students are encouraged to become college-ready by taking advanced classes. Offerings include trigonometry, precalculus, and AP and Honors course offerings.
Science is also taught in an integrated approach, and the Nevada Department of Education relies on the Next Generation Science Standards to help determine its curriculum. NGSS focuses on teaching the nature of science and emphasizes skills that will allow students to support life-long learning habits. Life and earth sciences are taught throughout elementary and middle school. High school students must take 3 courses of science, one of which must be biology.

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.

Chalk Talk: Get Involved with Your Student
At an early age, students are aware of their parents priorities based on their actions. You can help your student feel valued and be excited to succeed if you yourself model positive attitudes toward education and your child’s schooling. Schools are always looking for volunteers for a range of activities inside of school hours and out. Another way you can show your child that learning is important is to find something you are curious about and let your child research it with you. Ever wanted to change the oil in your car or figure out how to knit a scarf? A simple internet search will yield plenty of instructions. It will also let your child see you motivated to learn and observe how you handle frustrations and setbacks, eventually helping them develop a desire to be proactive about satisfying their own innate curiosity.
