Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Douglas District Curriculum
The Mathematics curriculum focuses on concepts, skills, and problem solving. Instruction involves rigorous concept development and real-world applications with a continued emphasis on computational and procedural skills. At all grade levels, students are encouraged to reason mathematically, to evaluate mathematical arguments both formally and informally, to use math language needed to communicate ideas and information precisely, and to make connections between math topics and other disciplines.
In the English Language Arts curriculum, students learn and demonstrate critical reading skills necessary to isolate accurate information found in print and digital format. Instruction involves engaging students with high-quality literary and informational texts to build their reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills. Besides these core subjects, students have the opportunity to take courses related to their career interests as well.

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: What College and Career Readiness Mean
As students learn under recently adopted standards, the way your child learns can change. Instruction changes to accommodate the new concepts, or way in which concepts are taught, and new assessments are created to measure student progress. Student learning may be more advanced or adjusted. The intention is to prepare students for skills needed in college – such as problem solving, reasoning, critical thinking and analysis. Students are going to expected to apply these skills in and out of the classroom - everyday activities they would be involved in during a career. Demonstration on tests and quizzes will require students providing support for their answer with reasons and/or evidence. As your child progress to the next grade level, learn what concepts will be taught and the real-world application the concepts could be applicable to. By understanding what your child will be learning and how they will be expected to demonstrate can benefit your student even more. School websites, educational services and online resources can provide additional information to help you, as well as the material your child’s teacher will provide you every school year.
