Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Milwaukie District Curriculum
The Science curriculum of Milwaukie schools uses resources from various sources to help show the students the scientific world. Students learn about food chains and ocean life by participating in discussion and then enriching these lessons with videos and on-line learning. The students also create on-line flip-books and presentations to demonstrate their knowledge with others. When these students enter high school they are more than prepared for the in-depth learning that occurs.
History uses different perspectives to assist students in learning about the history and cultures that make up the world. By teaming-up with other departments, students are able to view literature from a historic point-of view. When they read books like “Beowulf” they can compare the world in that time with the world from now. They also look at subjects like the Holocaust or World War II and see how decisions made in various countries could have changed the outcomes of these events.

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: Essential Kindergarten Readiness Skills
Before sending a child off to kindergarten, it is wise to equip them with some of the skills that will enable them to face the year with excitement instead of uncertainty. One of the first skills to concentrate on involves writing. Before going to kindergarten a child should be familiar with how to write their name and it is helpful if they are able to write each letter of the alphabet as well a recognize them. In addition to these alphabet-related activities a child should be able to say the sound of each letter, recognize their numbers and be able to count. Let them work on their small muscles by purchasing a pair of children’s scissors and let them practice cutting. Next help them develop social skills by setting up supervised play dates. Let them know the best way to express their feelings. Finally, help them learn how to follow directions by giving them two- or three-step directions, such as put on your pajamas and brush your teeth, or play a game of Simon Says with two or three directions. With these skills under the belt, each child will be more prepared for their first day of kindergarten.
