Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Bothell District Curriculum
Once students enter middle school, the curriculum begins to shift from skills-based curriculum to content-based curriculum. The students take English Language Arts, Math, and Science in their years of middle school where they begin to learn how the skills learned in elementary school are applied in different situations. The district also has a Junior High Challenge Program in which advanced students are able to take accelerated English, Math and Science classes. One of the goals of the program is to have more eighth grade students succeed with the Algebra 1 curriculum.
Writing in each of these grade levels mirrors the reading requirements in that ninth graders focus on narratives and literary analysis, while tenth graders focus on expository and persuasive writing. Eleventh grade is focused on the range of American Literature, and in student’s senior year there are Honors, AP and other options for their English Language Arts course. The district also offers elective classes including Creative Writing, Journalistic Writing, High School Reading and Editor Practicum.

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: Time Management
When a child has other things they want to do instead of going to school, or doing homework, time is not of importance. Parents can help them realize its importance by putting a few ideas into action. First, when giving a child a time period to complete something give them a timer to help them see how much time they have until their time is up. Another idea, especially for young children, is to compare a time period to the length of a television show. Another reminder for children is to place events or appointments on a calendar, perhaps labeling each person’s event in a different color. Finally, if a child is given a certain amount of time to complete something and they have not finished the project, as a parent it is important to let the child take responsibility. It is difficult not to nag or to give excuses, but by letting them deal with the consequences they may become motivated in the future.
