Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Price District Curriculum
Reading skills are not merely used in English Language Arts classes, but are developed in Science, History, and elective courses, where students are asked to demonstrate that they can understand how texts work and that they can explain what they have read and apply information from it to new situations. Similarly, the emphasis in math is not on rote performance of operations, but on being able to understand what the principles underlying the specific problem, and being able to use mathematics to solve real problems.
The curriculum is designed so that skills are introduced early and reinforced frequently, in order to make sure that students have multiple chances to master a concept. In Mathematics, for instance, students are taught the basic principles behind algebra, statistics, and geometry beginning in first grade, and begin to use variables in their math classes in sixth grade, to ensure that they will be well-prepared to succeed in the integrated mathematics programs in high school and at higher math.

Price District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Carbon School District, like all school districts in Utah, are in the process of implementing the new Utah Core Standards. The goals of the Utah Core Standards are to make sure that students have mastered basic skills and are able to apply them in their lives after high school, whether they pursue further education or move directly into the workforce. In order to serve these goals, the entire educational curriculum is focused on making sure that students can apply the skills they learn to concrete problems.
We currently cover the following Price-area school district: Carbon 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: Why Does Writing Matter?
Writing assignments like essays and reports can take a huge amount of work, and students often wonder what their purpose is. In fact, writing assignments are one of the most important types of schoolwork. Written reports and essays build necessary logical skills that help you think better and practice proving the points you want to make. They also are the best way to reinforce your understanding of grammar, spelling, the technical elements of writing, and the factual material that you are learning. Finally, written assignments are perfect training for all of the writing you will have to do in your career, or in college. Time put into becoming a good writing is time well-spent for your educational and career success.
