Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Ivins District Curriculum
The Math curriculum under the Utah Core focuses on problem-solving and critical thinking skills. More than being able to mechanically solve a problem, the curriculum aims to make sure that students understand the principles behind a given mathematical process, and are able to see how it relates to other mathematical concepts. This follows best practices for mathematics education, and has as its goal making sure students have sufficient mathematical literacy.
For instance, early math is taught with an emphasis on manipulatives, physical objects that help students visualize mathematical processes; students are also asked to visualize problems by drawing pictures and diagrams to explain them. When students have mastered reading skills, they are given word problems to help them connect the structure of a problem to the actual operations. The basic principles of algebra, geometry, and statistics are introduced in elementary school, so that students will have a strong basis to build on.

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: Arts Education Improves Student Success
The arts are not merely fun for students, or a way to get them interested in creative expression. They also provide a way for students to improve in other subjects. A sense of rhythm and timing from music can improve students’ number sense, while visual arts can improve the spatial sense so necessary for working on geometric reasoning. Singing improves students understanding not only of rhythm but of how words work, and can improve literacy skills. Doing visual art projects, dance, and music can also help students improve their fine and gross motor skills, particularly in the early grades, which can help them do better with physical tasks relevant to their education.
