Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Elko District Curriculum
Students in Elko elementary schools learn the unifying nature of science across various subject areas, including life science, geology, and Earth/space science. Inside of these topics, students learn the skills that are necessary for scientific achievement: inquiry, observation, and experimentation. The hands-on nature of the curriculum continues in high school where, in addition to the basics like biology, chemistry, and physics, students can study topics such as human physiology, biotechnology and microbiology.
Language Arts topics are designed around preparing students for the applied reading necessary for their future careers and college. This means that, in addition to the basics like grammar, reading, and composition, students learn to understand the purpose of a text. Early readers focus on determining fact from fiction, while high school students move on to compose detailed research papers on real-world topics using credible sources and thorough analysis.

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: iPods – Educational Super Tool or Classroom Distraction?
The opportunities for goofing off on an iPod seem endless. Games, music, chat applications… can this really be a tool for education? The answer is a resounding “yes!” Many innovative companies have begun weaving educational content into entertaining games in a mash up that is quickly becoming known as “infotainment.” Schools that support i-devices carefully curate the applications that are downloaded, and as a parent it may be wise to monitor your child’s home device as well. Early readers will be thrilled at the interactive books that are available, while older students may be able to use their iPod, Pad, or Phone as a database of science fair project ideas, a geographical reference desk, and a jumping-off point for exploring their innate curiosity about the world.
