Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Edmonds District Curriculum
The goals of the Science Department in the district are to create scientifically literate members of the 21st century and life-long learners. In order to accomplish this goal, they have developed a curriculum that follows the Washington State Science Standards while implementing critical thinking and data analysis skills into the curriculum. The district has a curriculum laid out for all students starting with ninth grade Physical Science, followed by tenth grade Biology and then the student’s choice of AP Biology, Chemistry or Physics.
The Mathematics curriculum in the district allows students choices in pathways to complete the math requirements for graduation. Students all take Algebra 1, but then can choose to take Geometry or Honors Geometry, Algebra 2 or Honors Algebra 2, and then they can choose upper division math classes including college transition math, Calculus, AP Calculus, or AP statistics.

Edmonds District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The goal of Edmonds School District is to make productive citizens of the 21st century. In order to achieve this goal, the district has created a curriculum that focuses on allowing students to communicate, collaborate, critically think, take initiative, and solve problems in all content areas. Students also prepare to take the High School Proficiency Exam (HSPE) in the tenth grade. In eleventh grade, more focus is placed on structured writing, literary analysis, discussions, and presentations. The Writing for College text is used in this course. In twelfth grade students begin to prepare for college and life after high school. The focus in twelfth grade English classes is college level writing and text analysis.
We currently cover the following Edmonds-area school district: Edmonds School District.

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
Time management is basically learning how to decide between two or more activities. To help a child learn how to do this, help them make a list of important and urgent tasks. Important tasks are important to them but if it is urgent it needs to be done immediately. Then parents need to help the child make a list of general topics of activities, such as friends, health and fitness, family, community, and so on. Then under each category place activities to be prioritized. Allow the child to practice this every once in a while, either using a list like above or with actual activities for them to choose from. For example, they may need to choose between studying for a test and watching television. Finally, each day, have them make a list of items that need to be done before bedtime that night and help them make the best choices for their time available.
