Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lakewood District Curriculum
The Science curriculum follows the Washington State Science Standards and focuses on evaluating data, inferring about and using data, making predictions and the application of data. Students must take Biology their sophomore year and pass the end-of-course Biology test in order to graduate. After Biology, students may choose any elective they want to fulfill the rest of their graduation requirements. The districts offer Chemistry, Physics, Environmental Science, and Human Anatomy.
The Mathematics curriculum is set up to give students as much choice in their math classes as possible, while still ensuring they gain the skills necessary to be productive members of the workforce after high school. The only two required math courses are Algebra 1 and Geometry. After completion of these two courses, students may take any math elective of their choice to fulfill their graduation requirements. Students must pass the end-of-course exam in either Algebra 1 or Geometry to graduate from high school.

Lakewood District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The school districts in Lakewood have done an excellent job mapping out curriculum that follows standards, builds on skills, increases learning, and implements the Common Core State Standards. Students in the districts must take four years of English Language Arts to be eligible for graduation. Ninth grade curriculum follows the Common Core State Standards for reading and the reading is broken into quarters. The year starts with informational text and ends with poetry. In ninth grade students learn to write expository essays, literary analysis, persuasive essays, and research papers. Since the Common Core Standards were followed in writing the curriculum, these are all skills that the students have been developing from kindergarten.

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: Helping a Reluctant Reader
Some children try to avoid reading whenever possible. Generally these children may have learning difficulties, have not been allowed to choose their own books or do not have easy access to books. Parents can help their child by finding books that fit with the child’s likes. Perhaps they like humor, or action. Show the child books that are like these and let them explore until they find one of interest. When they have finished the book let them pick another to keep this habit going. Most middle and high school students seem to enjoy paperback books. They fit in their binder easily, are easy to grab and go and seem to fit in their hands in a nice way. Some children think paperbacks are shorter than a hardback version, plus replacement cost is very little if lost or damaged. These are all easy elements to get around if a parent want to encourage their child to continue on with the adventures they can find in book.
