Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Payson District Curriculum
In elementary Math, students are introduced to the basic concepts behind algebra, geometry, and statistics, along with traditional arithmetic. In Language Arts, they are exposed to a variety of literary and informational texts and require them to show comprehension and critical ability. The goal is to give students problems to solve, so that they will be able to apply the solutions to them in other situations at later points in their education.
In high school, students take a variety of required classes in Math, Language Arts, Social Studies, Science, and other fields. Where mathematics is used, the connections between fields of mathematics are emphasized, and the goal is to ensure that students can apply the techniques for advanced mathematics to problems, particularly in the sciences. In all subjects, reading comprehension is an important goal, and students are asked to read widely from informational texts.

Payson District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Nebo School district is bringing its curriculum in line with the new Common Core State Standards, as they are articulated in the Utah Core Standards. These standards emphasize problem-based learning in key areas to produce students who will be college and career ready. The Utah Core is an educational approach that lays the groundwork for advanced skills in the early years, so that students will have a strong foundation by the time they enter high school.
We currently cover the following Payson-area school district: Nebo School District.
Keeping Informed: Recent Payson Educational News
- Family Math Night - Students and parents joined teachers for an evening of playing math games at Taylor Elementary. The goal of the evening was to engage parents in the mathematics education process and teach them about the new Utah Core math standards and methods. Students played games they enjoyed from class, and got copies of the games to bring home and play with their families.
- Dr. Seuss Day Programs - The Mayor of Payson and other elected officials visited Spring Lake Elementary to help students celebrate Dr. Seuss Day, and to emphasize the importance of reading. Students enjoyed not only the stories they heard, but learning about the jobs of their elected officials. Students also celebrated by coming to school in their pajamas.
- Quilting for Veterans - Sixth graders made a quilt to give to a local veterans’ nursing home. Many of the students have veterans in their families, and want to support our veterans for their support. They made the quilt in class, and were taught by volunteers how to knot it together.
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.

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: Choosing a College
There are many factors to consider when choosing a college. Two of the largest are cost and prestige. Cost is determined by many factors; students should consider how factors like in-state tuition, different housing costs, and scholarship availability will affect the cost of their education. Prestige can be important, but often is a quality that you pay a lot for, without a substantial benefit, so don’t overrate it. Other important issues are often overlooked. For instance, do you want a large university with lots of resources, or a small college where you’ll get lots of personal attention? Do you want to be close to family and home, or do you want to move to a new part of the country? Do you want a specific program with a certain certification, or are you still undecided? Be as clear as you can on the answers to these questions; it will help you make the best choice you can.
