Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Pasco District Curriculum
The Mathematics curriculum in Pasco Public Schools follows the Washington state math standards and secondary students in the district can choose from two mathematics paths. The Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2 path builds on skills from the previous course to ensure success in all courses. In the Integrated Mathematics path, ideas are emphasized and skills to understand and master those skills are introduced throughout the series. Students are required to pass three years of math to graduate from high school and either of these paths meets those requirements.
The Science curriculum in Pasco Public Schools also takes an integrated approach to understanding the nature of science. In ninth grade, students take an integrated science course covering Earth Science, Physical Science, and Agricultural Science. In tenth grade, students take an integrated science course covering Life Science and Agricultural Science. In eleventh and twelfth grade, students can choose to take either Chemistry or Physics in either grade. Students are required to pass both the integrated science courses and one of the upper level courses to graduate from high school.

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: Questions to Ask a New Tutor
When hiring a tutor, parents need to interview them just as they would anyone else they are hiring for service. Specific questions will help set the parents’ minds at ease that they are hiring someone that meets their needs. First find out if they have certifications or degrees in specific areas. At times it may be beneficial to hire someone that specialized in the area of the student’s struggles, however these tutors may charge more for their specialty. Next, make sure to ask into references. This is a way to find out about the tutor, especially if they have tutored successfully with other students. Ask them to describe their teaching style. If they are a strict educators, parents need to see if this will work best with their child. Parents can also ask them to demonstrate their method, or ask them to teach a short lesson while observing them. Finally, ask for their goals and methods for the child in question. This lets parents know if the child’s needs will be met.
