Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Renton District Curriculum
The Mathematics curriculum in the district follows the Washington State Standards for mathematics, offering students advanced level math classes in addition to the Algebra 1, Geometry, and Algebra 2 sequence required for graduation. The district also offers basic classes in Algebra and Geometry to offer support to students who do not have the basic math skills to be successful in these classes.
Students in science will start their high school career with ninth grade physical science, which offers an overview of Physics, Chemistry and the Nature of Science. In tenth grade students are required to take Biology. After passing both Physical Science and Biology, students can choose from Chemistry or Physics to complete their science requirements. The district also offers AP courses in Biology, Chemistry, and Physics.

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: Deciding if a Tutor Is Needed
Parents have to decide at times if their child is unmotivated in their studies or if they are truly struggling. Before deciding that a child needs a tutor, parents need to look at the amount of time and money that is needed for a tutor. Next, parents should look over the child’s assignments to see if they are having difficulties that the parent cannot help with. Another issue may be if the child has a learning disability in which case a tutor will need to be found that has worked with children with the same issues. If a child seems to be able to understand materials but they go blank or become stressed at test, tutors may be able to help the child. Every child can find a benefit from some help with their school work at times and at time there are after-school programs which are free and are manned by either a teacher or teacher guided group.
