Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Kodiak District Curriculum
The Language Arts curriculum addresses reading, writing, speaking and listening, and language usage. Elementary-age students learn the foundational skills needed to become fluent, independent readers and writers. Middle school students explore increasingly complex fiction and nonfiction texts and practice the major forms of written expression. 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. High school students do critical reading across all literary genres, examine classic film and become sophisticated in their ability to develop well-supported arguments in writing and speaking.

Kodiak District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Kodiak Island Borough School District Curriculum is aligned to Alaska State Standards and Grade Level Expectations (GLEs). The K-5 math curriculum focuses on foundational concepts and skills in numbers and operations, algebraic thinking, measurement and data, and geometry. The middle school math curriculum is designed to help learners become mathematically literate problem solvers. Students apply the foundational content and skills learned in elementary school to solving more complex problems independently. The high school curriculum is designed to make high-level mathematics accessible to all students, while insuring that the most talented students are challenged. Students approach engaging problems independently or in collaborative groups.
In the elementary grades children learn to be scientific observers of their world. They learn science content and skill through hands-on activities in living laboratories such as school gardens. In middle school, the science curriculum focuses interactions among the chemical, earth, and biological sciences. Students explore the impact on these interactions on humans and the environment. High school students deepen their knowledge and skill in these core sciences. Courses such as Astronomy and Zoology appeal to students with special interest and talents. Kodiak Island’s unique geography, ecology, and wildlife provide opportunities for students to conduct authentic research in their own community.
We currently cover the following Kodiak-area school district: Kodiak Island 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.
