Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Wasco District Curriculum
In Math, students are introduced to the main topics of numerical and algebraic operations, geometric functions, data analysis, and measurement. Through these topics students become able to problem-solve using appropriate tools and strategies, choose computational methods and use models, and understand mathematical relationships which supports advanced reasoning skills.
This framework has been applied to all the subjects and each core academic subject teaches thinking skills that students will use throughout their life. With the advanced and specialized courses that are available to students, the goals for learning will be clearly laid out and the expected learning experiences are outlined.
Contact our Academic Directors Today at 1-877-545-7737 to Discuss your Child's Strengths and Areas for Improvement.
SchoolTutoring Academy’s tutoring programs for Wasco students start with a free academic assessment with an Academic Director. Our flagship tutoring programs are available for $199.99/month which include regular one-on-one tutoring, academic mentorship, bi-monthly progress reports, learning profiles, and parental conference calls.
Wasco District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The curriculum that is used in the local schools follows the national model of standards-based education which has shown to be successful because of the detailed expectations it sets out. The role of the curriculum is to align teaching, learning, and assessment so that a clear picture of student and school achievement can be seen.
The curriculum sets out the major goals for student learning in each subject while also developing the series of skills, knowledge, and thinking strategies that students will develop. In Language Arts, the expectations are that students will be able to read a variety of text genres and be able to decode, comprehend, analyze, and evaluate information. Writing is a critical component of the curriculum and students are taught about the craft of writing, the purposes for writing, and the structure of language.

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.
