Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Heber City District Curriculum
To meet the curricular goals, the focus is on bringing all students to proficiency in Language Arts and Math, at the elementary, junior high, and high school levels. Proficiency is measured against the benchmarks set by the state, which are cumulative and build through the educational process. For instance, students are taught elementary math in a way which builds a clear pathway through to advanced mathematics, encountering necessary skills and practice for algebra, geometry, and statistics in the early grades.
The standards and principles of the Utah Core Standards are not rooted in being able to master abstract skills, but in being able to use the tools from education to solve concrete problems. In Mathematics, this means a focus on visualizing problems, using diagrams, drawings, and manipulatives to be able to identify how problems work concretely. It also means an emphasis on word problems, where students can see how mathematical concepts work in real-life situations.

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: Career Experience in High School
Many students want to gain career experiences while still in high school, as a way of preparing for life after graduation. There are great internship, work-study, and career training programs available, through high schools or through local nonprofits, that can help students build these skills. However, it’s important not to neglect the academic side of your training during high school. Some of the most important skills that you’ll need for the workforce are the ability to read and retain information, to write up a report about something you’ve learned about, to use math to solve problems, and to be a well-rounded person who is able to understand what’s going on in a given situation. The traditional subjects are, in fact, good preparation for the career world, because they enable you to perform well at whatever your chosen career will be.
