Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Twin Falls District Curriculum
Middle school Language Arts and Math programs have 3 standards levels used: power, honors, and resource. Power is the average level that is based on the Twin Falls Power Standards. Honors is the advanced level that is based on the Common Core State Standards. Resource is the below average level and is based on the Power Standards; material is presented in smaller increments at a slower pace.
In high school, the Language Arts curriculum includes 4 English courses, Creative Writing, Reading Skills, Newspaper, and Debate and Speech. The Newspaper course teaches advanced technology skills so students can actually publish their work. Newspaper and Creative Writing help students significantly with writing and editing skills. The Math curriculum includes 4 Algebra courses, 4 basic Math courses, 2 Geometry courses, 1 Pre-Calculus course and 1 Statistics course. These courses develop in students a full range of problem-solving and quantitative reasoning skills.

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: The Dynamics of Bullying
Bullying has become such a popular occurrence that there has been studies done to gain a better understanding about why it happens and how we can end it. It appears that bullying has three components: the victim, the bully, and the bystander. All three are equally responsible for keeping the fires of bullying burning brightly. The victim can stand up for him or herself or report the incident. The bully can find a more appropriate way to deal with his or her emotions. The bystander can speak up and become involved in stopping the problem as well. Schools nationwide have launched anti-bullying programs to address this issue by acknowledging it exists, investigating individual cases that are reported, and resolving problems before they escalate out of control. Some children television programming and infomercials are even showing skits about it. Parents are invited to join others in this mission. Check out your child’s school, the local library or the Internet to gather more information and find how you can help.
