Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lake Oswego District Curriculum
The Science curriculum at Lake Oswego Schools believes that science should be a hands-on experience. From observing plants growing in the classroom to visiting a watershed to participating in an Invention Convention, the students discover science from an up-close perspective. This approach continues as students learn how to work in a laboratory setting and the process of designing an experiment, observing its results, maintaining lab notes, and communicate scientific findings.
Children build a love of reading from their first day of school. Young children learn about different authors and genres. They also learn that there are different types of books for different topics. In the elementary grades they have a Reading Night where they invite parents and children to share a night with an author. These students also participate in the Scholastic Reading Counts program which is an achievement program that helps build strong readers by beginning at the level that the student is at and building comprehension skills from there.

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.

Chalk Talk: Building a Child’s Confidence
There are times when a child may know the material in a classroom, yet they do not have faith in their work or in their answers, or they do not want to ask questions because of some of these same reasons. There are things that can be done to build this confidence. Encourage the child to ask questions away from the classroom. Anytime that a child comes across something that they either know about or would like to know more about, encourage the child to talk, or question things. At the end of the school day, take turns with the child to ask and tell about the best and worst parts of the day. Another activity involves asking some of the child’s friends to visit. While they are there ask if there is any area of their school day that they had difficulty with. This shows the child that they are not alone in having questions.
