Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Tualatin District Curriculum
Children at Tigard-Tualatin School District begin to learn about science through unit studies. In kindergarten students learn about the changes in caterpillars by watching them change in their classroom. Speakers also help students learn about topics such as trees. When studying weather, students create their own anemometers and then watch them work outside. When they reach high school, these students have had their curiosity about topics raised, so they are more than ready to face more in-depth learning.
Social Studies is also taught through activities and units. In elementary school, one class creates a competition to see which team can successfully take their team across the ocean, as Pilgrims, and then create their own community. The students also travel to Philip Foster Farm to see the home of one of Oregon’s earliest pioneers. Students also participate in a timeline project where they research and present an event from Oregon’s history.

Testimonials and Case Studies from Our Parents
SchoolTutoring Academy 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 very self-conscious about her difficulties with the math section of the SAT. SchoolTutoring Academy’s Academic Directors created an action plan that boosted my daughter’s score and confidence level.
SchoolTutoring Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades. Test Prep Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades.
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: Third Grade Thought Processes
Each child is a little different, yet there is so much that is the same. In the third grade, most students think in certain ways. Third graders understand many parts of a problem, while they are in the midst of solving it. They also can relate symbols to objects, so if shown an addition sign, they know to add two numbers together. They are also logical but they still can come up with wild conclusions. Even though these students are very creative and imaginative, they are understandable. Little by little, these students become a little bit less egocentric. They know that other people’s views may differ from their own. At times they may still want to be the center of the universe but they will leave this stage soon. As these children grow and change, it is interesting to see how they grow and mature.
