Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Couer d'Alene District Curriculum
This district teaches the standard ELA curriculum, which includes a rigorous phonics course in Kindergarten, and progresses to basic, simple grammar skills in grades 1 and 2. By the end of their second grade year, they will have covered capitalization, punctuation, sentence structure, and identification of the main idea in literature and parts of speech. Beginning in the 3rd grade, students receive DIBELS testing which assesses their literacy skills. From 3rd to 5th grade, students learn grade level lessons in phonics, spelling, word analysis and grammar skills.
In grades 6-8, they are learning how to have oral discussions on a variety of topics based on written and visual information, write arguments, analyze promotional and persuasive writing, use technology to publish writing, and do research to write reports. In 9th grade, students analyze different writing styles in order to gain a deeper comprehension of written material, learn to use various writing styles such as MLA and Turabian, analyze historical and seminal documents, and learn narrative writing.

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: Attention Deficit Disorder
Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), formerly known as ADHD, is a common condition that parents and teachers face today. Telltale signs may include difficulty focusing on school work or other duties, an accumulation of incomplete assignments, interrupted sleep pattern or difficulty falling asleep, restlessness, and talkativeness. However, children who have ADD may be able to focus on things that they are very interested in, be quiet, or sit for extended periods of time. A doctor must diagnose this condition, and cannot do so until the child reaches a certain age. There are traditional and natural treatments for ADD, as well as recommended lifestyle changes that have proven to be very helpful in relieving children of the symptoms. As a result, students with ADD have the same opportunities and successful experiences as students without it.
