Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Sandpoint District Curriculum
The school district also promotes a spirit of teamwork and collegiality, which it feels is essential to individual growth and overall continues improvement. They also try to model and teach to the concepts of interconnectedness so that students will be able to operate in a global society as they plan for their post-secondary transition.
The curriculum emphasizes critical thinking and reading skills, focusing on nonfiction reading as well as fiction and poetry. Students gather evidence from their reading to write analytic essays. Oral presentations are valued, as is vocabulary acquisition. The goal is for students to delve below the surface with their reading and get to the heart of the authors’ intentions. Having a clear understanding of the importance of evidence also helps students express ideas, based on reasoning, rather than opinions. This critical thinking will serve them well in college and career.

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 Do’s and Don’ts
One of the trickiest aspects of a college resume is the formatting. The layout should be clean and clear, easy to scan, with pertinent information jumping out to the reader. The applicant’s name, address, contact information, and grade point average should be centered at the top. The rest of the page should be broken into sections with activities grouped under major themes, like “Leadership,” “Awards,” “Community Service,” and the like. Under these titles, list activities that apply with a short description of each. This description should begin with the dates the student began and finished this activity, or indicating that it’s ongoing. Then, a brief list of responsibilities involved. Remember that this description doesn’t have to be written in complete sentences—it should only be a line or two, and should be very specific and to the point. Most resumes have room for four to six sections with two to four activities in each.
