Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Bainbridge District Curriculum
The Math curriculum starts in Kindergarten with students separating and joining objects as a basis for understanding addition, subtraction, and quantities. By the end of their elementary years, students will be solving one variable equations and be ready to advance to the middle school mathematics curriculum. Science in elementary school focuses on understanding the world around them and asking questions. By the end of elementary school, students are able to design experiments to answer their questions.
By high school, students have a base level of knowledge in all subjects that assist them in being successful. Freshman and sophomore students take composition classes their first two years of high school to solidify their skills, and then move on to English Language Arts electives to explore writing and literature. The district has adopted the Holt McDougal Math curriculum for Algebra 1, Geometry and Algebra 2, which all students must complete. After completing the basic series, students may take upper division math electives. Students in the tenth grade must take Biology, and any other science electives they choose in the eleventh and twelfth grades.

Bainbridge District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Bainbridge Island School District follows the Washington State Standards in all curricular areas and develops all curriculum around these standards. Kindergartners begin to learn writing by understanding that there is a world and audience beyond themselves. In reading, they begin to understand the relationship betweens the letters of the alphabet and their sounds. In the elementary grades, students build on these skills until they reach sixth grade. In sixth grade, students are able to write a complete essay that analyzes and elaborates on a given topic and in reading are able to discuss and reflect on both literary and informational text. The elementary English Language Arts curriculum adopted for the district is Good Habits, Great Readers. Teachers use this as a basis for instruction, adding their own material as needed to help students achieve.
We currently cover the following Bainbridge-area school district: Bainbridge Island School District.

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: Teens and Sleep
The teenage years are filled with emotional, physical and hormonal changes. In order for these changes to occur the body requires sleep. Usually about nine hours of sleep a night. If a teen does not receive enough sleep it will reflect on their academic performance, their moods and their behavior. The driving teen that is suffering from lack of sleep is also more likely to have car accidents, be obese and to be depressed or anxious. To help to make sure they receive enough sleep, parents need to explain to the teen why it is so important and they need to remember to be a good role model. Also parents should remind the teens that their beds should be used for sleeping, not homework or entertainment. Also daily exercise, especially late in the afternoon, can also help them to sleep better. Finally, encourage them to wake at the same time every day, even on the weekend.
