Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lemmon Valley District Curriculum
The Literacy/Language Arts curriculum is designed to teach students the reading and writing skills that prepare them for life application after graduation. The curriculum begins in Kindergarten with the alphabet and the recognition and sounds of letters. Students learn to use the basic skills of Phonics to sound out words. Each grade following builds literacy and language arts skills on skills learned in the previous grade. In high school, students learn critical thinking skills and writing skills across different disciplines.
Mathematics skills begin with students counting objects and learning to recognize written numbers. They learn basic algebraic skills by adding and subtracting objects, as well as geometric skills by the recognition of different shapes. They also learn sorting, placing objects of like shapes in the correct groups. In high school, students begin learning more advanced math skills, including trigonometry and a higher level of critical thinking skills.

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: Role of Curriculum Advisors in Schools
Curriculum advisors work closely with the district curriculum supervisor in order to ensure the district curriculum is aligned with state guidelines. They are also responsible for meeting with teachers to ensure that they are part of the curriculum planning process so that they can take ownership in the curriculum they will be teaching. One of the roles of the curriculum advisor is to observe teachers in the classroom to ensure that they are using good instructional strategies that support the curriculum. They also need to have a good two-way communication system with teachers so that they can help if there are problems. Sometimes, the curriculum advisor will model for a teacher by teaching a class while the teacher observes.
