Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Riverdale District Curriculum
Reading instruction in the Weber County schools is based on the Utah “3-Tier” instruction model. The three-tier system is designed to make sure that all students achieve proficiency in reading, which is so important to success in all subjects in school.
“Tier One” instruction is regular classroom instruction, where students learn in groups differentiated by their skill-level and are regularly assessed to make sure that they are mastering the skills. If teachers determine that a student is struggling, they will be referred to “Tier Two” instruction, which reinforces key skills.
Most students referred into “Tier Two” instruction will be able to catch up and master the skills they are falling behind in quickly. Students in “Tier Two” instruction who are still struggling will receive intensive assistance, called “Tier Three,” which ensures that they do not get left behind while the classroom is covering other issues.

Keeping Informed: Recent Riverdale Educational News
- Students Support Children's Hospital - Students from Riverdale Elementary assembled Easter baskets for patients at a local children’s hospital. This is the eighth year that students have brought in donations and assembled the baskets to send to the hospital. The project is the brainchild of a teacher at the school, and replaces a previous project where students supported a children’s hospital elsewhere.
- Sixth Grade Novelists - Students at Good Foundations Academy wrote their own novels with their English teacher. Following a curriculum designed for high school students, talented sixth-graders created original characters and settings, developed a plot, and wrote a full-length novel. The program that the teacher used is available to homeschooling and high school students all over the country.
- Blog for Teachers & Parents - The Language Arts departments at Weber County elementary schools share a blog of resources for parents and students. The blog includes detailed information about the reading lists and units within the district, as well as supplementary resources for online games and skill-building programs. The blog also has links to the files that teachers are using to structure their classes.
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 at Different Paces
Students will master skills at different times, and in different ways. For any given student, some topics may come easily, and require only one explanation, while others will need to be explained in detail. For some, they may need to hear the same topic explored in several different ways until they feel confident with it. Some students will need to practice a skill many times in order to figure it out, while others will want to have a solid understanding of the concept behind the skill before they feel ready to practice it. One-on-one instruction, whether with a resource teacher in school or with a tutor, can help students’ learning needs get met, in whatever fashion they learn best.
