Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Commerce City District Curriculum
The standards based curriculum in English Language Arts begins instruction in kindergarten in reading and literature, composition and language. Students in the elementary schools study vocabulary, read fiction and nonfiction, and write for a variety of audiences and purposes. Over the years, these activities help students develop the analytic skills necessary to understand the purpose of different texts and to recognize literary devices used by authors. As students develop research skills, they also become able to evaluate the quality of information.
The Science curriculum helps students to see natural phenomenon in the way scientists do. They learn how to formulate and test hypotheses and how to communicate their observations and conclusions. Another component of the Science curriculum is its emphasis on technology and engineering, and other practical applications of the sciences. Students are also expected to see how technology, and other scientific knowledge, impacts society as a whole.

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.

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: The Benefits of Cooperative Groups
When students work in cooperative groups more motivation is generated and the feelings of connection lead to positive group relations. Group members also learn from one another and more intellectual activity is created in contrast to independent learning. Positive feelings toward one another also help in combating isolation and loneliness and helping to build relationships and positive views of peers. Self esteem is increased through working with peers, and this increases with increased skill in working cooperatively. This method has also been proven effective with at-risk students and disruptive activity. The cooperative method can also develop social skills and empathy while at the same time providing an academic support system for low performing students. Groups of two or three should be the foundation of any cooperative program and give students the chance to become familiar with each task or skill before they are expected to handle more group members.
