Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Cañon City District Curriculum
The Language Arts program introduces elementary students to all elements of the curriculum they will be expected to master: reading, writing, speaking and listening. In middle school, students also add in research skills and also use media as a source of reflection and comparison. High school students are exposed to all forms of literature and writing, and are expected to apply critical thinking skills to questions and essays. The program is designed to effectively prepare students for college and career life.
The math program follows a similar approach and begins by introducing students to number systems, operations, algebraic patterning, measurement, and shape awareness. In middle school, students in the Cañon City Schools are introduced to ratios, statistics, and probability. This coherent approach helps students develop a core mastery of math skills which can then be applied to higher math and in real world situations.

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: Helping Kids Develop Organizational Skills
Some kids are natural organizers, others need to be taught. When children are young, they all benefit from having routines and schedules that they can depend on. Later, when homework and other routines are preparing students fort the routines of high school and college, it may need some reinforcing. The “routine” may take some time but a friendly reminder, like a snack waiting for your child or a spot cleared at the table, can encourage your child’s organization. Starting with the beginning of the school year, at any grade level, your student can be organized for homework, studying and the school day, a skill that can continue in other areas of their life as well. Helping to develop the organizational sense in a child will pay off in all the things they do academically.
