Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Gig Harbor District Curriculum
In middle school and high school, students continue to enhance their basic skills through electives and advanced classes. Students in middle school are able to take Algebra 1 and Geometry, which allows room for advanced math, through Calculus, in high school. Students also have the option of taking advanced Language Arts in both middle and high school. Biology in high school is required for graduation, but the other year of lab science required for graduation is of the student's choice.

Gig Harbor District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Peninsula School District aligns all of its curriculum and instruction around the Washington State Standards. The Standards lay out the progress that students will take from basic to advanced knowledge within each subject. The standards build on each other from grade to grade and the curriculum designed around the standards. Teachers use the curriculum to plan their lesson objectives and formal assessments to measure proficiency in core academic subjects are based directly on the grade-level expectations detailed within the curriculum.
Students start learning fundamental reading, writing, math, and science skills in kindergarten and continue to develop these skills throughout their elementary school curriculum. Literacy across the subject areas, problem-solving strategies, and elementary reasoning are introduced during these years. By the time the students are ready to leave elementary school and enter middle school, the curriculum and instruction provided by the district has given them a solid foundation for success. Students are also offered many opportunities to work on individual and group projects that allow exploration of a subject, the development of project planning skills, and serve as an authentic form of assessment.
We currently cover the following Gig Harbor-area school districts: Peninsula 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.
