Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Longmont District Curriculum
The Language Arts curriculum develops the literacy and language skills used to read, write and communicate effectively. Students are introduced to literature, non-fiction and informational texts and develop analytic skills to determine meaning from each type of reading. By high school, they are expected to be proficient in gathering information from multiple sources and distilling the ideas into a form that can be presented in writing or through an oral presentation. Being able to evaluate and properly incorporate and reference sources is also emphasized at the high school level.
The Science curriculum is designed to introduce students to the ways that scientists view the world and its natural phenomenon. They are taught process of investigating natural occurrences, how to communicate observations and form hypotheses, and how to test and verify observations. Technology and its role in society is also a part of their learning, and students see how technology allows for people to adapt to change.

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.

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: How to Determine a Child's Reading Level
There are various reading diagnostic assessments that can be given to determine a student’s actual reading level. Examples of reading diagnostic assessments are the Woodcock Reading Mastery Test, the CTOPP, the Gray Oral Reading Test, the TOWRE, etc. Educators, especially reading specialists, should learn how to administer these assessments and convince school administrators to make them available in the school. After all, if no diagnosis in terms of reading struggles is given, a prescription for improvement cannot be given either. Also, there are websites, such as Scholastic’s Book Wizard, that allow teachers to search for the grade level equivalency of popular books. Leveled readers are simple options for teachers looking for books at specific levels. It should be noted that there are alternative scales to grade level equivalency scores, such as DRA and Lexile Measure. This can be intimidating for teachers, but they can seek the help of reading specialists (who can assess students) and school librarians (who can pull grade level-appropriate books off the shelves) to make the process smoother.
