Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Pullman District Curriculum
In middle school, students begin to develop skills learned in elementary school. Students begin to read more for information and write complete essays. Students receive content instruction in Science covering Earth, Life and Physical science. Students are able to take Algebra 1 and Geometry in middle school, if their elementary school teacher recommends it and they have acceptable test scores. This allows them more freedom of choice in their Math courses in high school.
High school students are required to take four years of English, three years of Math and two years of Science. After completing Algebra 1 and Geometry, students are able to choose a math class elective to complete their requirements. Students must take Freshman and Sophomore Composition and Biology. The rest of the requirements can be fulfilled with electives offered by the department.

Pullman District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Pullman Public Schools currently use curriculum to ensure students are meeting the Washington State Standards in all core subject areas. The Common Core State Standards are based around the idea that all students will be college and career ready at high school graduation.
Students in the elementary grades follow a curriculum that allows them to build on skills from the year before in English, Mathematics and Science. All students take the whole language approach to learning reading and begin writing in kindergarten. In math, teachers use Holt curriculum to teach the Washington State Standards. Science is taught using a holistic approach in which teachers asked students to observe the world around them, creating hypothesis about natural phenomenon. Content instruction in Science begins in first grade with Earth Science and continues in subsequent grades covering the basics of Physical and Life Science.
We currently cover the following Pullman-area school district: Pullman Public 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: What Makes a Good Tutor?
Often time, successful tutoring takes more than a person that is competent in a topic explaining said topic to a student. Many times, a student needs to be receptive and open to the tutor. A good tutor understands this and takes the time to get to know the student. This lets the student know the tutor really cares about them and so much more learning can happen when this is the case. In addition, it allows the tutor to combine ways of learning a topic with interests of the child.
