Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Golden District Curriculum
The Math curriculum is based on teaching skills in numerical operations, algebraic thinking, geometry and measurement, and data analysis and statistics. Students amass skills during their elementary school years in each of these topics and then take more in-depth courses in high school. One of the goals is for students to be able to understand the best way to solve any problem, be able to draw upon or create mathematical models to solve problems, and use quantitative reasoning strategies.
The role of technology has flourished both as any area of study, as a support for learning, and as a resource for creating and innovating. Students can take courses in the STEM fields of science, technology, engineering and math that incorporate real world and hands-on learning experiences in robotics, computer programming or coding. For students who are artistically inclined, there is the chance to learn about graphic design programs and take courses in subjects like computer aided design.

Golden District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Jeffco Public Schools uses the Colorado Academic Standards as the framework for its instructional plan. The framework provides standards for each subject, the critical thinking and conceptual awareness that students should develop, and the real world correlates to the learning students do. The emphasis is on core academics extended by a reach into electives like the arts, technology, language and then further anchored by extended evidence outcomes that ensure a level of proficiency in skills students will need in their post-secondary lives.
We currently cover the following Golden-area school district: Jeffco Public Schools.

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: Current Instructional Technologies
One trend emerging in many classrooms is the use of hyperbooks allow students to travel back and forth—revisiting previously learned material—and connect the information that they have learned during each of the lessons together. Teachers should provide students and parents with access to the hyperbooks at their homes because this can help children who miss school to avoid falling behind. Teachers who wish to create hyperbooks must have experience using technology and have patience, as it can take a long time to create all the hyperlinks and can be easy to make a mistake in the linking; however, the benefits outweigh the limitations. Further, they can be used for years to come, so the time expended in professional development activities such as this are a benefit to a great many students.
