Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Douglas District Curriculum
The Math curriculum emphasizes a deepening knowledge of the subjects of operations, algebra, geometry, data analysis, and mathematic functions. The early learning program provides fundamentals and by middle school students are working with algebraic expressions and equations, and use probabilities to determine answers to decision-oriented problems. Students are expected to become fluent working with word problems and be able to express their mathematic thought in writing.
The Language Arts curriculum integrates the skills of reading, writing, speaking, and listening to provide a broad range of critical thinking strategies to students. This is taught using fiction, non-fiction, media and by having students write and conduct research of their own. Presentation and listening skills are a part of the curriculum and students learn how to organize and present ideas as well as how to participate in literary discussions. Writing is taught to include the different purposes for which a student might write such as narrative or persuasive.

Douglas District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Converse County School District uses the guidelines set forth in the Wyoming Content and Performance Standards. The standards provide the learning objectives that students are to meet from kindergarten through graduation in all courses. The goal is to provide rigor to the learning that all students are exposed to, however the standards allow teachers leeway to determine the best way to teach a lesson. To further ensure that all students are meeting the educational goals, there are both support services and enrichment programs in which students may participate.
We currently cover the following Douglas-area school district: Converse County School District #1.

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 Is the Writing Workshop?
The Writing Workshop is a method of teaching writing that many teachers adopt in their classroom practice. The goal is to teach writing as a process and a craft and to teach students the different stages that writing goes through from first thought to final presentation. The process begins by devising brainstorming and outlining strategies or pre-writing thoughts that might later become an essay. The next stage is to plan and write, whether it's a story or an essay, and to work on a full first draft. After a student has produced a first draft, they are taught editing and revising techniques that help them improve the flow and organization of their writing. Finally, they are taught how to present their work - whether using a computer or in a presentation form that includes other visuals. Through this approach, students learn how to take time developing writing which increases their capacity for efficient and effective writing abilities.
