Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Sedona District Curriculum
The Language Arts curriculum combines the skills of reading, writing, speaking and listening, conducting research and viewing media so that students develop strong critical abilities in each. Writing is focused on in such a way that students are able to be creative and reflective, and to develop different voices for different purposes such as persuasion or writing for information. Reading is taught so that students are able to read fiction and non-fiction and develop the different types of analytic skills in each genre. An important aspect underlying both these strands is the acquisition of vocabulary and each year, and the ability to determine meaning in words and increasingly complex texts is emphasized.
Mathematics and Technology are also critical aspects of the core curriculum and students receive an education in these areas to prepare them for higher order mathematical skills. Students also receive education in computers and current technological advances to prepare them for college and the competitive global job market that awaits them after high school.

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: How Do I Help My Child's Language Development
The development of language begins when you start communicating with your baby. The first rule of helping your child's language development is to never talk to them in baby talk. Children learn to speak by listening you how you speak and if you talk baby talk, they will talk the same way. As your child understands more, he or she will use increasing levels of vocabulary. Ask questions that require critical thinking, such as questions about a story you've just read out loud. Give simple instructions to your child about a task that you want her to do. Use one step instructions to begin with, slowly adding steps as her skills at following directions. Pay attention what your child has to say, having an interactive conversation. Always remember that children watch everything you do and listen to everything you say and you are their first teacher in language development and communication.
