Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Littleton District Curriculum
In Language Arts, the skills of reading, writing and listening and speaking are taught in an integrated fashion. Students use each as a basis for reflection and analysis - students write analytic essays on literature they have read and learn listening skills that will help them listen through lecture style classes. Informational themes and short narratives are emphasized, giving students the chance to demonstrate comprehension.
The Math curriculum starts by providing skills in all topics of math so that students develop a range of problem-solving skills. Each grade level reviews previous grade skills and builds more complex skills. This is to prepare students for the math skills that will be used in high school. In algebra, students will be expected to master topics such as linear and quadratic equations and in geometry they will learn how to work with theorems and geometric proofs.

Littleton District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Little Public Schools follow the guidelines of the Colorado Academic Standards. The CAS provides clear learning objectives for each grade level in each subject and extends to areas such as physical education and health, the arts, career goals, and extended evidence outcomes. The goal is that students have a well-rounded education, with core academics emphasized and supported by learning expectations that will prepare them for life after graduation. With changes to the global marketplace, the curriculum has become more adaptable so that emerging technological skills are encompassed within the teaching framework.

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: The Benefits of Community Service
Many high schools now have community service requirements as a part of their graduation requirements. There are many goals for this beyond teaching students how to become active participants of their community. Students get the chance to learn about the different types of community-based projects they can work on - visiting with senior citizens, building homes, participating in community cleanups, volunteering at animal shelters - and these opportunities often help them recognize career areas they may want to pursue in the future. It also helps students build project planning skills and gives them the chance to understand the different facets of community service - such as fundraising, event planning, logistics and see what areas they are adept with. Finally, it can form a lasting bond between a student and a local organization or a social goal that will be an important part of their lives.
