Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lone Tree District Curriculum
The Language Arts curriculum is comprehensive in its oversight of literacy, communication, critical thinking and learning goals. Students are taught how to read different types of texts and how to use different analytic skills in understanding the goals of fiction and non-fiction. Students write various types of texts, including expository pieces, literary analyses, persuasion, and creative writing. Language development, grammar and vocabulary and a part of the curriculum at all grade levels, and students are expected to develop a full grasp of formal English.
In mathematics, each grade level has focus areas that instruction is based off of; for example, a focus area in second grade is the use of units of measure. The program that is utilized creates high expectations for both the quality and quantity of material students are exposed to, and provides the appropriate materials for both teachers and students to make it possible to meet these expectations. Hands-on learning and modeling of concepts are also essential in math.

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: School Nutrition Issues
With all that teachers have on their figurative plates, schools often do not want to be responsible for these types of concerns. They may require teachers to send out permission slips each time food will be brought to class, naming what the snack(s) will be; those who do not obtain permission or who do not turn in their slips will not be able to eat the snack. Students will not be allowed to eat anything brought in for birthdays if permission slips weren’t sent out beforehand but will likely be able to take the goodies home. Some schools may choose a less complicated process: Anytime food is brought in, the student takes it home, where his/her parents decide if it is okay for the child to eat. It may not seem fair, but it can lessen the liability schools have considerably.
