Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Cottonwood Heights District Curriculum
In the elementary schools, the district uses the Reading Street literacy program, curriculum maps, math-literature connections materials, and resource books. Students begin learning algebraic and geometric concepts in kindergarten, and build on those skills throughout their elementary school and middle school careers, until they are prepared to tackle these subjects in depth. By sixth grade, they will begin working with variables and by high school are prepared for full year courses in algebra, geometry or statistics.
In English, students begin learning to read in kindergarten, and build their phonetic and decoding skills until they are able to work with complex informational and literary texts by middle school. Threaded throughout the curriculum is a focus on technology. Technology is integrated in all subjects as a tool for research and creating and a way to access connections between areas of learning.

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: Choosing a Tutor
For parents who are considering finding a tutor for their child, there are a few thoughts to guide the process. First, tutors are equally intended for struggling, average and accelerated students. Tutors can work with students to master subject learning during a school year, or have a more targeted focus, such as working on writing or application essays. For younger students, tutors can help establish learning strategies that will be in use throughout their education. For older students, tutors can help them understand some of the more challenging concepts within their subjects. Finally, the right tutor, one that your child enjoys working with, can help a child develop a mentoring, role model, type relationship, that will have countless benefits for years to come.
