Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Issaquah District Curriculum
Students entering middle school take either 7th grade math or Algebra 1. Both classes use the Connected Math Program curriculum that includes a wealth of online information for parents to assist their student at home. By their senior year, students in the district have the option of taking either Calculus or International Baccalaureate Mathematics. During their high school English classes, the four basic literacy skills identified by the district are still applied and students develop analytic ability in these areas. Seniors will work on independent studies, research projects and other capstone events that demonstrate their academic achievement.

Issaquah District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The core curriculum has designed a course of study that involves broad literacy and communication skills. Issaquah School District starts literacy education in kindergarten and has implemented a curriculum and instruction program that ensures students are literate members of the community. The elements of instruction used at all levels to ensure literacy are alphabetic fluency, subject comprehension and purpose for reading. As students increase their breadth of reading, their analytic abilities also increase.
The district recently adopted the six trait writing curriculum for elementary students to help students develop a range of writing process skills. This takes a process oriented approach where students develop writing using drafting, revising, and editing techniques as central facets. The curriculum in mathematics at the elementary levels ensures students have problem solving skills, conceptual understanding, and computation skills before leaving elementary school. All elementary schools are currently using the Everyday Math curriculum to guide instruction.
We currently cover the following Issaquah-area school districts: Issaquah 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.
