Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Santaquin District Curriculum
In Language Arts, students are asked to demonstrate the ability to understand the parts of a story as early as kindergarten, and are asked to write about and express opinions and arguments about the texts they read throughout elementary school. This prepares them to write essays answering questions about both literary and informational texts in junior high and high school, using evidence from their reading to substantiate their arguments.
In Math, students are introduced to the core concepts behind geometry, algebra, and statistics as early as first grade; these topics are introduced gradually and in an age-appropriate manner, but always with the potential to link to more complicated versions of the tasks. In the early years especially, students are given the opportunity to visualize problems using charts, diagrams, pictures, and manipulatives. Later, they are asked to apply these skills to word problems, to make sure that they can understand the concepts behind a problem.

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: Reading For All Ages
The emphasis on reading for elementary school students is important; students who read more will improve their skills more quickly than others, and will be able to do more complicated tasks in the classroom with ease. However, once your child has mastered basic literacy, reading outside of assignments doesn’t lose its importance. Reading widely exposes your child to new ideas, and makes them push their own intellectual boundaries in a way that can introduce them to different parts of the world. In addition, the skills developed in independent reading will reinforce those being developed in the classroom, such that your child will come to understand the links between English class and the rest of their life. Don’t stop encouraging your child to read once they leave elementary school—they can always benefit from being voracious readers.
