Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lander District Curriculum
The Math curriculum is built around strands that cover the topics of numeracy and operations, algebra, geometry, data analysis, and advanced math functions. In geometry, students begin with simple shape awareness before progressing to topics of area and learning how to determine area in odd shaped objects. By high school, they are able to apply this to trigonometry, geometric measurement and dimensionality, and modeling with geometric principles.
The Language Arts curriculum emphasizes reading, writing, spoken communication, and critical listening. Students read texts from literary works, popular books, newspapers, online media, and research resources to learn the different analytic skills to apply to each type of genre. They also write a great deal, often using the texts they are reading as a springboard to analytic writing. By integrating these two subjects, students are able to see how authors organize and present ideas and are able to develop their own voice in writing as well.

Lander District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Wyoming Content and Performance Standards guide instruction in the Fremont County Schools and are made up of rigorous frameworks that detail the learning objectives of each subject. The Common Core is used for Math and Language Arts objectives, and the frameworks for other subjects follow similar models of focusing on major topics and detailing the goals that students should meet in each. Beyond academics, students are also exposed to learning about character education and community service so that they have strong interpersonal and collaborative skills to support their academic knowledge.
We currently cover the following Lander-area school district: Fremont County School District 1.

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: Parental Involvement
Parental involvement is always discussed as being one of the keys to academic success for children, but it is important that the involvement is well suited to the parent so that it is most effective for everyone involved. Parents will always ask their children about their days, and that's a primary step in engaging about their education, but beyond that activities such as joining PTO's, advisory committees, chaperoning field trips, and getting involved in school day events is the next step. This has to be based on the parents schedule - many groups that support the schools meet in the evenings, which is ideal for working parents; other parents who need to be at home in the evening, may find that going into a classroom once a week and reading with students is the perfect fit for their schedule. Whatever it is, make sure it's something that you have time for and are able to commit to, and most importantly, enjoy doing!
