Mount Vernon District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Mount Vernon has implemented literacy instruction in every core content class in the district. This will not only help students with understanding and analyzing informational texts, it puts the district on the right track for implementation of the Common Core State Standards that have been adopted by Washington State. The English Language Arts curriculum used in the district is split into reading and writing strands, but the two strands are used in conjunction with each other to make sure students get as much exposure to the necessary skills and requirements as possible. The writing curriculum utilizes the Step Up to Writing program in all grade levels. Students write both narrative and expository essays and cross content writing while following the Washington State Standards for writing.
We currently cover the following Mount Vernon-area school district: Mount Vernon School District.

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 with Difficult Teachers
Occasionally, there can be problems between a teacher and a student. This leaves the parents with a difficult situation. They want the best for their child, but they also want them to learn to get along with everyone. If a child talks to a parent about situations with a teacher that bothers them, the parents need to hear them out. This helps to relieve a little stress. If the situation is still an issue, parents can make an appointment with a guidance counselor. This is someone in the school who would know about other problems that may have arisen with this educator. A meeting can also be arranged directly with the teacher by the parents to discuss the difficulties. If it is comfortable for the teen, they can attend the meeting with the counselor and the teacher.
