Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Portland District Curriculum
The Language Arts curriculum ensures that students have a vocabulary that increases in difficulty as they mature. In the early years students are introduced to words that are single syllabic. Each week they learn new words. By the time they are in middle and high school the students have built a toolbox of words that they are able to use in their oral or written work. They are then capable of filling out applications using the words that they need to fit the purpose.
The study of government is part of the Social Studies curriculum. This study is a continuous one from the early years through graduation. Students are first shown the people that are in authority throughout different segments of their lives: teachers, parents, government leaders and more. They then begin to study the ruling bodies of the state and then the nation. Throughout this time they learn about the history of the United States government including the Constitution and Federalism. They also find out the role that time segments play, such as the Civil Rights Movement.

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: Building Reading Skills for Studying
When children enter middle school, quite often, expectations are they will know how to study. They are expected to have developed a level of self-guidance and independence that allows them to work on one task for an extended time. This may not be the case. With a little help from their parents, though, they will soon be on their way. First, parents should show their children to think about the title of a book or the chapter. This will help them to look for information that reinstates the information. Next, children need to be shown how to read with a purpose. First they should read a chapter, looking for important points and think about the key idea, and sift out details. Now they can read the chapter again with these ideas in mind. By helping a children with these skills, parents are giving them tools they can use throughout their lives.
