Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Hillsboro District Curriculum
The English language arts curriculum integrates the instruction of reading, writing, grammar and vocabulary, and verbal communication so that students develop critical literacy skills. Grammar and language development is emphasized as it is important that students gain a thorough understanding of nouns and verbs in order to grasp other parts of speech, including adjectives and adverbs. Alongside proper language usage, the writing curriculum also supports the development of students unique voices so they grow as effective communicators.
In science, students learn about many topics including biology, earth and space science, chemistry, physics, geology, and environmental science. In geology, students learn about sedimentation, erosion, and weathering, and the roles each play in building up and tearing down landforms. This helps them better understand the natural word and how it formed and continues to change. Students also learn about ecosystems and the nature of interdependence among species. They also learn about natural resources including renewable energy sources.

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.
