Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Vernal District Curriculum
The Utah Core Standards are sequential, meaning that they are designed for students to build new skills on top of a foundation of skills learned previously. In Math, students begin preparing to study algebra throughout their elementary and middle school careers. For instance, addition and subtraction are taught together, in ways that preview how equations can be solved by moving numbers from either side of the equals sign; students also begin working with variables in sixth grade, well before they take algebra or even pre-algebra.
Similarly, in Language Arts, students are asked to understand the structural components of a piece of writing early. In kindergarten, they are already asked to express opinions about reading assignments; as they grow older, they are asked to be able to answer specific questions about those readings, and to provide evidence to explain why they give their answer. By high school, seventy percent of what a student reads is informational text, largely in social studies and science classes.

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: Why Seek Out a Tutor?
There are many reasons why you might be considering getting a tutor for your child. They may be having trouble in a specific area in school. In this case, a tutor is a great choice, because it allows your child t to focus on the problem area in a more concentrated way. Alternately, your child might be having trouble in a variety of subjects. A tutor is likely to be able to pinpoint the areas that need the most work (is there a reading problem making the rest of the subjects more difficult? Is there a problem with mathematical reasoning that affects the rest of their studies and reinforce the necessary skills. Your child might have a major standardized test coming up, and could use reinforcement to do their best on it. Or, if your child is already working at grade level, or beyond, a tutor can help them move forward on what interests them and become more academically advanced.
