Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Umatilla District Curriculum
In elementary school, students gain decoding skills and build up their reading speed (fluency) in ELA. With that knowledge, they frequently retell stories they read and hear. Teachers check their comprehension of what they read by having them answer questions that ask What, When, Where, How, Why, and Who. Students practice writing stories using proper grammar at the beginning of sentences, the proper end punctuation marks, and with a clear main idea. They later learn how to organize main ideas and supporting details in analytic writing.
In elementary math, skills include the review of multiplication and division facts. Students learn what a decimal is and the relationship between them, fractions, and whole numbers. Students also learn how to find the area of shapes. Later, students analyze how fractions are divided, learn to explain fractions that contain variables and recognize that variability explains how different sets of data have the same mean and median.

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: Writing Workshops for Students
A common approach to teaching writing is by using the workshop model. There are many reasons for this approach, not least the process-oriented approach to writing that students are presented with. They learn how to take an idea and turn it into a full length essay or story within a class publication. The publishing of students’ writing gives them a greater motivation to perfect their work, as they know their friends, family, and maybe even the world will be reading it. It also gives them a sense of accomplishment and the ability to reflect on their past pieces. Lastly, students often use authors’ writing styles as inspirations for their own writing. How great would it be for children to use themselves as such inspiration by referring to previous stories they have written?
