Educating Our Parents: Understanding the North Salt Lake City District Curriculum
The elementary school curriculum has clear standards in each grade. In Language Arts, it means that students begin learning to read in kindergarten. Reading texts are tailored to students’ level, to make sure that they are reading texts that are neither too difficult, nor so easy that they don’t support students developing new skills. The goal is for students to be able to read and re-read a text to make sure that they understand it, rather than being given a framework to understand it before reading the text.
In junior high and high school, students are doing the majority of their reading in informational texts, not only in language arts courses, but in social studies, science, and elective courses. They are also working on their writing skills, being able to understand material they read, explain what it means, and be able to evaluate arguments about it. This applies as much to the literature they cover in language arts classes as to the factual material in other classes.

North Salt Lake City District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The core curriculum standards in the Davis School District are based on the Utah Core Standards, which draw from the Common Core (a national, evidence-based set of standards to prepare students for careers and college). The Davis Essential Skills and Knowledge (DESK) Program works to ensure that students meet those standards, and that they are equally applied across the district.
We currently cover the following North Salt Lake City-area school district: Davis School District.

- New Volunteering Initiative - A statewide volunteering program designed to support Utah schools launched in North Salt Lake. The goal is to get 20,200 volunteers into Utah schools, to help with reading support and other crucial areas. The business community joined the Governor to introduce the program at Foxboro Elementary, where the governor himself read to students.
- Theatrics at Orchard Elementary - Students at Orchard Elementary won a grant to perform the classic “Yes, Virginia, There Is A Santa Claus.” In addition to providing a fun holiday experience for students, teachers say the production will help students build their reading and speaking skills.
- Jump Across Utah - Students at Foxboro Elementary participated in a program where they jumped rope enough times to cross the state of Utah. The program was designed to allow the whole school to participate in a physical fitness goal together, without needing a lot of expensive equipment. Students surpassed their goal by 42 miles, jumping rope more than 1.1 million times in four weeks.
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: Building Literacy Skills Outside The Classroom
Reading doesn’t just happen in a classroom; it happens everywhere. Whatever level your child is at, make sure that they get to practice their skills in a variety of contexts. With early readers, focus on letters and words in your daily life, encouraging them to notice that reading is all around them. With older children, have them help you with reading-centric tasks, such as reading directions or recipes. And with young adults, talk to them about their pleasure reading, read the newspaper or other news source together and discuss it, and direct them towards reading-focused hobbies. By ensuring that reading doesn’t get relegated to homework and schoolwork, you’re helping to make your child a life-long reader with the skills they need to succeed.
