Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Burley District Curriculum
In English language arts classes, students are challenged with different types of texts. They read classic literature but also study and analyze non-fiction texts so that they will be prepared to read, analyze, and write about all types of texts at a higher level when they graduate from high school. Students are required to dig into and evaluate these different kinds of texts as well as different non-fiction formats, such as hard copy reference books and digital resources.
Students are taught to gather evidence, evaluate it, and use it to back up written and oral presentations they make in class. The goal is that students will be better prepared to support their arguments and decisions with evidence, not just opinion. Students are also expected to develop vocabulary and English grammar skills so that they can communicate effectively to a wide audience.

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: College vs. University
What’s the difference? Basically, the main difference is how each is organized. A university is organized into departments called schools or colleges, usually by a similar set of majors. So there might be a School of Business or a College of Humanities. Each of these departments has some autonomy but operate under the umbrella of the college, itself. They tend to be housed within separate buildings. Often, they are organized this way because of size. Colleges, on the other hand, tend to be smaller and tend to be organized more loosely. There are still departments, such as English and Math, but they are often more general and lack the autonomy of a university. Public schools are also often universities, though there are plenty of private ones, and there are also plenty of small, public universities as well.
