Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Olympia District Curriculum
The English Language Arts Curriculum in Olympia focuses on reading for understanding. Students are encouraged to understand the meanings of what they are reading. The students are taught the skills and strategies to accomplish this task through direct instruction, modeling of reading strategies, and independent reading. Students read literary and informational texts for a variety of purposes and develop different strategies for different genres. Students set goals in the ninth grade and follow the goals through graduation.
Science focuses on a way of thinking about science and the world, rather than science facts. The common theme running through all science classes in the district is problem solving, experimental design, and critical analysis of data. Throughout this experience, students gain a solid body of knowledge and the skills necessary to analyze it.

Olympia District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Olympia follows the Washington State Standards for English Language Arts, Math, Science, and other core subjects. These standards provide students will the skills, knowledge, and thinking strategies to be college and career ready upon graduation from high school. Math is offered in two pathways in the Olympia schools. Students can pursue the Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2 pathway or the integrated math pathway. Both will ensure the students are getting the computational, reasoning and problem-solving skills to be successful, in high school and after high school. The Science curriculum in the district is set up much like English/Language Arts and Mathematics in that students must take an introductory course and then is free to choose electives that interest them to earn the remaining credits for graduation.
We currently cover the following Olympia-area school district: Olympia School District.

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: College Financial Assistance
Income level does not need to be a deterrent for families when deciding on attending college. The fee for the ACT and SAT are the first fees that parents have to face when thinking about colleges. The companies that make these tests and advanced placement tests want to make them accessible to low-income families, so most will reduce or eliminate the fees for these families. To find out, parents or students can ask the guidance counselors. Another fee is the application fee for colleges, some up to $100. However, if they are notified, they may eliminate these fees, or check to see if these fees are non-existent if the applications are free when filled in on-line. Some colleges will also give money for college visits if money is tight. Assistance can also be found when making the deposit or when buying textbooks. Finally, do not overlook financial aid that may be available from the college. When given the amount try to negotiate for more, especially if there are special circumstances such as disabilities or medical bills.
