Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Hood River District Curriculum
Students in English Language Arts encounter a wide range of texts from the earliest grades. They are taught to use critical thinking skills to sort through the large amount of texts they come across each day. Students also learn to be close readers, who search texts for evidence and use that evidence to make sensible arguments. They learn to write research reports, business essays and responses to literature, in a clear and logical way. They write appropriately to a particular audience. They use reference materials to support written information and list citations.
In Math, by third grade, students learn to multiply and divide numbers. They begin to think like Algebra problem solvers by finding the unknown number in a multiplication and division equation. They also learn to apply the commutative, distributive, and associative properties of multiplication. By the end of middle school, At this level, students learn the concept of proportionality and use it to solve problems about percentages of discounts, taxes, tips, interest and base increases and decreases.

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: The Importance of “Why?”
Ask any parent and he or she will likely tell you that it is the “Why?” questions that drive him or her over the edge. The questions start as soon a child begins to talk, and the end…well, they never seem to end. “Why?” really means “I need information to help me make sense of the world.” That simple question is one of the most useful tools in learning. As such, parents should use it, too. It can widen the interpretative possibilities of any child or adult to consider “why”. When reading together, it is important to ask a child why he or she thinks a character chose a particular course of action, or why another character ended up in such a mess. Asking a child “Why?” questions encourages him or her to engage more deeply with a text, and fosters important critical thinking skills.
