Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Orem District Curriculum
In Math, the Common Core aims to produce students who are capable of making sense of problems, reasoning abstractly, and being able to use mathematical patterns to apply mathematics in the classroom and beyond. The major strands of numeracy, algebra, geometry, and data analysis are the areas in which students are instructed and develop skills each year. This design is in place so that students’ knowledge and abilities are started during foundational years and deepened during each child’s education.
The goals of the English Language Arts Common Core is to make sure that students can read, understand, and critique a variety of texts, both informational and literary, and to write well. Students learn how to decode meaning, through writing and discussion, and use media sources as shared texts. Literacy and communication skills are also built, with the goal that students are able to conduct research, evaluate text sources, and write independently.

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: Improving Test Scores
Testing is an essential part of students’ lives and the structure of the contemporary educational system. Many students suffer from anxiety around testing, and aren’t able to show their full potential in a test-taking situation. Taking a test in any subject actually requires two kids of knowledge: first, the knowledge of the material being tested, and, second, the knowledge of how to take a test of this particular format. Students need to build both of these skills in order to be successful on tests, whether they are the SATs or ACTs, required state tests, or even just the everyday pop quiz. If your student is struggling with test-taking, a tutor may be able to help them identify the test-specific skills they need to reach their full potential.
