Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Corvallis District Curriculum
In conjunction with the CCSS, Corvallis School District has implemented the Standards-Based Report Card. Traditional report cards have typically given one letter grade for each subject, but the SBRC divides each subject area into lists of skill standards that students are responsible for learning, with a separate mark given for each individual standard. Parents, teachers, and students will now have a more complete and accurate gauge of progress toward achieving the curricular standards.
The Corvallis School District has also put into practice Career-Related Learning, activities designed to highlight and develop personal strengths that will translate to post-secondary education, career, and real life skills. With a purpose-driven approach focused on individual goals, students will be able to fine-tune their education and career goals, all before the leave the Corvallis K-12 School District.
Contact our Academic Directors Today at 1-877-545-7737 to Discuss your Child's Strengths and Areas for Improvement.
SchoolTutoring Academy’s tutoring programs for Corvallis students start with a free academic assessment with an Academic Director. Our flagship tutoring programs are available for $199.99/month which include regular one-on-one tutoring, academic mentorship, bi-monthly progress reports, learning profiles, and parental conference calls.

The goal of Corvallis District Schools is to grow students into world-class learners and vital members of society by challenging them, engaging them, and preparing them for future success.

These are a shared set of educational expectations in grades K-12 English, Math, and Sciences, endorsed nationwide, that will provide a consistent understanding and results in the real world.

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: How To Make Friends at a New School
We’ve all been there. New school. No familiar faces. Making new friends can be a daunting prospect for some, but it doesn’t have to be. There are some tips to help make the transition much easier: 1) Be confident. Everyone likes someone who appears secure in who they are, no matter the circumstances. And don’t worry if you don’t truly “feel” all that confident at first. Just put on a brave face and try your best. 2) Make eye contact, smile, and laugh. 3) Don’t be afraid to make the first move to find potential friends. Ask to share a lunch table, or a library desk. 4) Join clubs or after school activities. It’s a great way to find the common ground of shared interests. 5) Don’t be afraid to have your own opinion. If you are the fan of a sports team, or a TV show, speak up. 6) Remember names. It speaks volumes to people around you. It shows that you bothered to remember them, and who doesn’t like that feeling? And lastly, 7) Give compliments. If you note someone’s strengths in a subject, skill in a sport or activity, or even a great answer given in class…speak up!
