Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Valley City District Curriculum
The Valley City School District mathematics curriculum’s priority is students’ mastery of mathematical fundamentals. The curriculum initially focuses on the key concepts of number operations, informal algebraic and geometric concepts, and the structure of the number system for grades K-8. Students in grades 9-12 are expected to extend beyond the fundamentals to develop skills in critical thinking and problem solving while completing a rigorous series of algebra and geometry classes.
The Science curriculum is committed to students’ understanding of the basic principles of life, physical, and earth and space science. The Science department is also actively participating with the Valley City School District’s recently implemented detailed technology plan. This plan provides resources such as computers, internet access, and educational software to aid students understanding of how technology is shaping current scientific progress. Students are also taught the process of scientific inquiry through performing both physical and virtual experimentation.

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: What Is the Role of a Writing Tutor?
A writing tutor is able to help students focus in on their writing process, the development of their ideas, and the organization with which they approach written work. Writing is emphasized in the curriculum as it is an important aspect of critical thinking and necessary for college readiness. Writing is an individualized process in which an idea is crafted and put into a format that requires a number of steps like pre-writing, revising and extending, and editing. These are not natural skills to all students, and a writing tutor can help each student to create a method for taking these steps.
