Educating Our Parents: Understanding the West Point District Curriculum
In Language Arts, students should be able to read a literary text, form an opinion about it, and demonstrate support for that opinion, using evidence from the text. As early as kindergarten, they are encouraged to form opinions about the texts they read, and record those opinions in writing. As they grow older, they are asked to explain their opinions, and to look for evidence in the text. The goal is for students to be critical readers who can explain what the elements of a story do.
This applies just as much for informational texts, including the readings done in classes other than Language Arts (and informational texts read in English as well). Students begin reading informational texts in elementary school, both as part of their reading and language arts practice, and in other subjects. They are asked in the early grades to demonstrate that they understand the content of the text, but the emphasis is on how that information may be more broadly applied.

West Point District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The curriculum in Davis School District is based on the Common Core, a national set of standards aiming to prepare students for success after college, and the Utah Core Standards, which interpret the Common Core for Utah Schools. Davis School District uses the Davis Essential Skills and Knowledge (DESK) Program to ensure these standards apply in all schools across the district. Since the goal of the Utah Core Standards are to produce college and career ready students by twelfth grade, they set progressive standards for each grade that allow students to build up to that point with practice and repetition.
We currently cover the following West Point-area school district: Davis School District.

- Human Rights Awareness Project - Students at West Point Junior High made paper airplanes as a part of a schoolwide focus on human rights. Students learned about the universal human rights promoted by the UN, and then created paper airplanes with those rights written on them to help inspire them to think about how those rights could be promoted and protected.
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: Staying Motivated
It can be hard to stay motivated all the time on school work, particularly when it is frustrating or difficult going. Young students can often be kept motivated with a rewards system, particularly one that focuses on completing tasks, rather than achieving certain grades or successes. As students get older, help them keep focused on their schoolwork by checking in with them about what is due, making sure they have a plan and schedule that gives them enough time to finish everything, and offering to find them help for particularly difficult subjects and areas. Students need to figure out what sort of work pattern helps them the most and what their own needs are for schoolwork.
