Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Parker District Curriculum
The Language Arts curriculum has developed an integrated approach to literacy and communication teaching that focuses on the ways in which these skills are used in other areas of learning. Reading is taught so that students understand the different comprehension strategies applied to different types of text from literary works to opinion pieces. Reading non-fiction and writing in analytic or informative modes are heavily emphasized so that students can read and communicate effectively.
The Math curriculum emphasizes the topics of operations, algebraic thinking, geometry and spatial awareness, and data analysis. Starting from the elementary school years, students work with ratios and proportions as the basis for their data analysis skills. In high school, they can take statistics and further develop their sense of how to work with numbers and how to use the outcomes from statistical analyses.

Parker District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Douglas County School System follows the Colorado Academic Standards (CAS) which is a comprehensive framework for learning from elementary school through high school. One aspect of the CAS is its Extended Evidence Outcomes, a series of objectives that are designed to ensure students are graduating with skills that connect them to lifelong learning and productive work opportunities. Recognizing that students will be graduating into a highly technological, and increasingly global world, the learning standards and expected outcomes guide learning so that students are adaptable to the work and learning opportunities they will face.
We currently cover the following Parker-area school district: Douglas County School System.

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: Learning Style Compatibility
A learning style compatible classroom is a classroom in which the teaching and learning experience parallels the way the brain learns. Current brain research suggests that the learning process is far more complex then we had anticipated. Teachers need to learn that engaging the mind of the learner is key to the learning process. Teachers need to create learner centered instruction in their classrooms. This includes creating learning style and multiple intelligence experiences for the learner though an enriched environment and a focus on providing the students with a meaningful context that makes connections to what students know. A learning style compatible classroom is an active, noisy classroom that has students working in small groups or pairs, and provides students with hands on learning and thoughtful conversation. Learners thrive in a classroom environment that supports learning by trial and error, inquiry and risk taking. In this type of environment the brain is able to function at its highest level.
