Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Windsor District Curriculum
The Language Arts curriculum intertwines the skills of reading, writing, communicating, researching, and media viewing so that students have a comprehensive literacy experience. Students learn how to write about what they read, evaluate texts and media resources, and how to discuss and listen to others opinions. The reading strand also emphasizes comprehension strategies that students use to read non-fiction.
The Math curriculum highlights the skills that students should develop in numerical operations, algebra, geometry, data analysis as well as more advanced subjects like trigonometry and pre-calculus. By the end of middle school, students are expected to be prepared for algebra, have a handle on working with equations, and the process oriented skills to work through long problems. Students are also expected to have strong math literacy skills and be able to understand word problems and what is being asked of them.

Windsor District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The local districts follow Colorado Academic Standards as their basis for teaching and learning. The standards provide guidance to educators about what targets of learning should be met by students each year, the critical thinking strategies that students should develop, and real world applications of the lessons which students will be learning. The curriculum does not mandate the style in which the teacher should impart these lessons giving teachers the chance to customize their delivery to suit their learners needs.

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.

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: Independent Studies
Most high schoolers are able to take on an independent study for course credit at their high schools; the process usually involves finding a faculty advisor and submitting a plan for the independent study. Students can use an independent study as an opportunity to conduct interdisciplinary research and deepen their understanding of how subjects of interest relate and impact the world. For instance, students could study math and government by looking at how statistics are used in political decision-making. Students can also use independent studies as an opportunity to produce a significant body of work, be in written work, taking a multimedia approach, or exhibiting original work. Taking on an independent study shows dedication to learning by a student and an opportunity to learn about a lot more than just the subject being studied.
