Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Farr West District Curriculum
The Language Arts curriculum brings together reading, writing, listening and speaking, research skills, and media viewing so that students have a strong range of critical communication skills to draw upon. In reading, the focus is on strategies to decode meaning - both words and overall authorial intent - so that students become analytic readers. Being able to respond to different texts in writing is also a part of the expectations, and students are expected to use textual evidence to support their written arguments.
Research skills are taught so that students are able to locate information and to evaluate the quality of the resources they find. They are expected to be able to use outside resources within their work, to support or refute claims, and to properly cite the works they draw from. Students will use these skills in a number of their classes and they are further enhanced by the library databases made available through the district libraries. These help students prepare for their usage in college.

Farr West District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Weber School District uses Utah Core Standards which address the skills, knowledge, and concepts that students need to develop during their education. It is laid out as a framework that details the yearly expectations within each subject and these objectives serve as the classroom objectives which teachers use to guide their teaching. Within the lesson planning, teachers are able to determine the best way to teach their students.

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: The Importance of Research Skills
During middle and high school, students begin to have the chance to do more independent work and the first step is usually through research projects that they get to choose the topic for. As they work on these projects, their research skills will begin to develop and they will learn how to access information, how to evaluate, and how to reference different works they read. This is one of the most important parts of learning - learning how to teach yourself - and when students get to college, with the expectations for providing additional research in critical papers, it is a skill that should not be overlooked. It is also a great way for any student to determine what is most interesting them, which also makes their academic future more meaningful.
