Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Ephraim District Curriculum
The basic principles of mathematics (such as algebra, geometry, and statistics) are introduced, in grade-appropriate ways, throughout elementary school. Middle school and high school mathematics are taught in an integrated fashion, to reinforce connections among them and prepare students for learning more advanced skills and techniques later. In English Language Arts, this means that students read progressively more difficult texts, and analytic skills are taught and practiced in more complex contexts.
Another major focus of the curriculum is problem-solving, and ensuring that students can use the skills they are learning in the workplace or in further education. In Language Arts, this means an emphasis on informational texts in addition to literary texts at all grade levels. Students learn to extract information from texts, and to be able to make and defend arguments based on the content of what they read.

Ephraim District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
All school districts in Utah are transitioning towards the Utah Core Standards, which are based on the Common Core State Standards, a set of educational goals based on the best research and international benchmarks. The goal of the Common Core is to ensure that all high school graduates are well-prepared for college and careers. There are two main points that drive the curriculum. The first is to make sure that skills build sequentially throughout the curriculum. The second is the development of critical thinking and problem-solving skills.
We currently cover the following Ephraim-area school district: South Sanpete School District.

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: Picking The Right College For You
There can be too many variables to think about when choosing a college. But if you focus on what’s most important to you, you can make your choices easier. What’s important to you in your environment: do you want to be far from home or close, in a city or the country, large or small? Is there a specific academic program or degree that interests you? How much can you afford to spend, and what are the financial aid options at various schools? As important as it is to like the feel of a campus, make sure that you know that a college you are considering will offer you the best education for your goals.
