Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Layton District Curriculum
The focus on Math revolves around major strands of learning in numeracy, geometry and measurement, algebraic operations, and data analysis. These are taught in a more general, foundational manner for students in elementary and middle school, and focused in on as full courses in high school. Students are expected to develop procedural skills in each, culminating in an ability to understand the best method to solve any type of mathematic problem.
In Language Arts, the strands of learning focus on reading, writing, listening and speaking, media study, and research skills. The goal is to develop students who are critical readers and able to write and convey substantial meaning. Reading comprehension skills including decoding of meaning, word study, and analysis of different literary genres are all part of the learning expectations. The use of media serves to provide texts for analysis and a means for creating student’s own work.

Layton District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Like all schools in Utah, Davis School District is moving towards implementation of the Common Core State Standards, a nationwide set of educational standards designed to make students career and college ready. The Common Core emphasizes key skills in Math and English, and their applicability across the curriculum. They are based on the best educational research and are substantive and clear in their nature. Through the Davis Essential Skills and Knowledge (DESK) Program, teachers are focusing on making sure their students meet these standards, at every level.
We currently cover the following Layton-area school district: Davis 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.

Chalk Talk: Hands-on Learning
More schools are beginning programs that emphasize hands-on and experiential learning. Really great school districts will have plenty of opportunities for students to apply what they learn in the classroom to concrete opportunities. For Science classes, this may mean science fairs, or competing in the Science Olympiad. It may include concerts and performances that bring arts students out into their communities. For English classes, it may mean reading to others at community centers, or even with children in earlier grades. These hands-on learning opportunities are a way for students to understand how important their education is, and to put it into practice.
