Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Payette District Curriculum
The English and humanities curriculum challenges students by having them read different types of texts, from classic literature to non-fiction. When students graduate, they should be well-versed in reading all types of texts at a higher level. Students write analytical papers and make oral presentations. They are required to dig below the surface of different types of texts, ranging from hard copy books to digital resources. They gather evidence from their reading, evaluate it, and use it to back up their written and oral presentations, so that they demonstrate that they can support their arguments and decisions with evidence.
In mathematics classes, students delve deeply into fewer concepts so that each student has a full understanding before moving on to the next concept. Students are taught to understand why the math works and will be asked to prove this understanding, instead of just memorizing formulas.

Payette District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Payette School District follows the Idaho Common Core Standards which provides a clear set of learning standards dedicated to the same subject area topics that students should master each year. Whenever possible, these concepts learned in each class will be applied to real-world situations so that students can develop strategies for solving more accessible, relatable problems. This will give students critical thinking and problem-solving skills that they can take with them, whether they pursue post-secondary education or directly enter the workforce.
We currently cover the following Payette-area school district: Payette School District.

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: College Resumes
What should an applicant include on a resume, and how should it be formatted? College resumes include extracurricular activities, which can range from sports, theater, arts, clubs, summer or after-school jobs, etc. The thing to remember is that these activities should demonstrate various qualities and interests in the student. A good rule of thumb is to include activities that demonstrate multiple qualities. For example, involvement in a club is great, but being a leader of a club is better. Also, being involved in a club with a special focus, like community service or diversity awareness, looks good. Remember that different types of activities can be grouped together for more impact. Instead of just having a “Clubs” section, maybe have a “Leadership” or “Community Involvement” section. The key is remembering that this document is designed to be read quickly, so important information should jump out at the reader.
