Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Auburn District Curriculum
All freshman students must take one semester of foundational science. This course surveys all the sciences and provides a foundation in experimental methods and data collection. In their level two science selection, students may choose from Biology, Chemistry, Geology or Astronomy. After completing the level two curriculum from any of the allowed courses students can choose classes such as nutrition, natural resources, automotive, culinary arts or sports medicine for their third year of science.
Students must complete the Algebra 1 and Geometry sequences and pass the end of course exam for both before moving on to their third required year of math. The Algebra 1 curriculum includes instruction on variables, exponents, Cartesian plane, linear systems and Polynomials. The Geometry curriculum covers points, lines, planes, reasoning and proofs. Both foundation classes teach graphing and calculator skills and use them in problem solving. Auburn school district is unique in that it offers many more math electives than surrounding districts.

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: Importance of Parental Presence
It is difficult to determine how much parenting a teen needs. They are stretching for independence, yet they still are tied to their family. To help parents decide how much attention is good, they need to consider three items. First, teenagers like to test the limits that are set before them. Some of this is to receive a reaction from parents. When this happens, parents need to be there to set the limit, and to let them know that you are concerned for their safety. The next is to help the teen feel emotional safe. This is an age where emotions are on the edge. Parents can help by being there to listen and give advice if asked. Otherwise, see if the teen and parent can work out a plan together. Finally, in high school, it is easy for teens to fall behind in classrooms and feel like it does not matter to anyone. If this seems to be an issue parents should call the guidance counselor to ask for an evaluation, or to see of the number if classes can be changed.
