Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Kenai District Curriculum
Elementary-age students learn the fundamentals of reading, writing, speaking, and listening. Middle school students learn to have collaborative conversations and deepen their skill in writing grammatically correct fiction and non-fiction prose. High school students read literary fiction and write critical responses, learn research writing, and expand their communications skills to include making well-supported logical arguments orally and in writing. The analytic reading, writing, and communication which students conduct supports learning throughout students education.

Kenai District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Kenai Peninsula Borough School District Curriculum was developed in alignment with Alaska State Standards and Grade Level Expectations (GLEs). In elementary school, the Math curriculum at each grade level focuses on foundational concepts and skills in numbers and operations, measurement, statistics and probability, geometry, and problem solving. In middle school, the focus is on gathering data, making conjectures, formulating models, inventing counter examples, and presenting solid arguments that clarify complex ideas. High school math students advance their core knowledge in algebra and geometry and can select courses which help them understand how math is applied in their daily lives and advanced courses which prepare them to pursue college or technical careers.
Science is taught as an inquiry-based discipline. Elementary and middle grade curriculum strands include physical science, life science, and earth science. Students also explore the intersection of science and technology. Students gain cultural and social perspectives on science by investigating landmark scientific advances, the role of women in science, and how scientific phenomena are illustrated in Native American stories and art. High school students have access to individual courses in the science disciplines. Advanced Placements courses and testing are also available for students wishing to accelerate their science education.
We currently cover the following Kenai-area school district: Kenai Peninsula Borough 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.
