Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Eugene District Curriculum
In addition to OAKS, many Eugene district schools participate in the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP), which is administered in subject areas such as Reading, Science, Math, Writing, and History (US). This assessment is given to 4th, 8th, and 12th graders. Math and Science are also tested, though less frequently and in fewer Eugene schools, using The Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS). School participation is based on the Oregon Department of Education.
With these programs set in place, Eugene schools can ensure that both teacher and student achievement measures continuously grow, create and reinforce a common language for education throughout the district. Such a clear outline of expectations promotes professional excellence in our teachers, as well as student learning. The systems are measured by the Interstate Teaching Assessment and Support Consortium (InTASC).

SchoolTutoring Academy’s tutoring programs for Eugene students start with a free academic assessment with an Academic Director.

Eugene District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Proud to be known as a student-centered district, Eugene schools focus on identifying, addressing, and empowering the needs of each child. As such, Eugene district schools adhere to the Oregon Assessment of Knowledge & Skills (OAKS) to assess development and progress, as well as areas for improvement, in student learning. Grades 3-8, as well as high school, are tested in the areas of Reading, Mathematics, and Science in order to meet the Oregon Standards. Writing is also tested for high school students.
We currently cover the following Eugene-area school district: Eugene Public Schools.

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.

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: Tips on Choosing a Tutor for a Student with a Learning Disability
Parents of children with Learning Disabilities often see them fall behind in school, or worse, fall between the cracks with their challenges unidentified and unnoticed. In many cases, a great option can be to hire a tutor trained in helping students regain not only a passing grade point average, but also confidence in themselves. Some tutors can be used to help reinforce challenging subjects, but can also assist in teaching a child to work independently. Parents are encouraged to talk to their children and explain why they think a tutor might be needed, and what a tutor does. Recommendations for tutors can be gotten from teachers and other educators, but also through other parents or resources that might be provided by the school district. Be sure to thoroughly check the tutor's credentials, set clear goals, obtain the tutor's lesson plan, ask for progress updates or reports from both your child and the tutor, and try to spend some time observing your child with the tutor. Children with Learning Disabilities may need to have more than one tutoring session per week, since time, repetition and constant practice often makes the all the difference.
