Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Washington District Curriculum
The curricular program is designed so that students approach problems holistically, rather than working on tasks in isolation. For example, in mathematics, students are shown the principles behind a problem, rather than a rote way to solve an equation set up a certain way. Manipulatives (physical objects to count and move) are used in the early grades, and visual representations of problems are an important learning tool, as are word problems.
Students exposure to Mathematics is integrated throughout the curriculum, with the basic elements of geometry, algebra, and statistics introduced in elementary school; students begin working with variables in sixth grade, for instance, and algebra and geometry are taught simultaneously in order to build connections between the fields. For advanced students, there is the opportunity to take an accelerated mathematics sequence which will terminate in taking Advanced Placement Calculus or Statistics in twelfth grade.

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.

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: Choosing the Right Tutoring Program
When choosing a tutor, there are a lot of factors to think about. It’s important that a tutor understand the material that the student is working on—not just in the sense of being able to do the work, but being able to explain it to your child, in terms that match the way that the material is being covered in the classroom. Tutors need to understand your child’s learning style, so that they can match their lessons and speed to the way your student works. Finally, you need to be assured that you’ll be able to work with them over time, so that your student won’t have to start over from zero when they switch tutors or tutoring programs.
