Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Boulder District Curriculum
The Language Arts curriculum focuses on reading, writing and communication and gives students plenty of opportunities to be expressive and to pursue reading of their own interest. Independent reading is emphasized from elementary school on so that students are able to recognize the pleasure in reading. This is accompanied by an emphasis on non-fiction texts that help students develop analytic reading skills in other content areas.
The Math curriculum is founded on a number of concepts, or goals for student learning, in the subject. Students are expected to have an understanding of number systems and abstract representations and symbols of numbers and operations. They are expected to make evaluations between differences, using estimation and precise methods. Also, students learn how to solve problems and make decisions that depend on different variables. These are all taught in relation to real world applications, and often provide students a chance to collaborate, and students are able to see how math impacts decisions in the world.

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: Establishing Routine for Children
When children are young, they benefit from having established routines which they can slowly take over different parts of as they begin their journey towards being a responsible person. The long-term goal is that children will be able to self-direct themselves in their personal, academic and future professional life, and so the habits set early will make a big difference along the way. Children should get into a before school routine and leave for school "feeling ready." Likewise, they should have an after school routine, which should consist of extracurriculars, homework, social and family time. By establishing regular participation in household and community based routines, young children have a much easier time during their teen and early adult years with transitions and managing responsibility.
