Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Wasilla District Curriculum
Science education in the district frequently takes advantage of the area’s unique geography and natural resources. This place-based approach puts students in the field with scientists through the Sitka Sound Science Center mentor program. The MSBSD Science curriculum is inquiry-based and student-centered. From the early grades through high school, students are involved in developing questions and using scientific methods to find answers. For example, third graders learn about the salmon life cycle by visiting a local hatchery and examining water samples to find the macro invertebrates that salmon eat.
The MSBSD wants all students to become proficient readers who love books. In the early grades instruction focuses on foundational skill in reading, writing, speaking and listening. Middle and high school students read increasingly complex fiction and nonfiction works and learn how to write informational and persuasive, convincing essays. Students also develop listening and speaking skills that uses critical thinking.

Wasilla District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The goal of the MSBSD Math curriculum is to meet the needs of diverse learners and to develop students’ computational, reasoning, and analysis skills. Foundational content and skills learned in elementary school leads to geometry and algebra in middle school. For advanced middle-level students there are course options that can be counted for high school credit. The high school curriculum builds math skills that are essential for daily living. Advanced Placement options are available for students who want to pursue college-level mathematics.
We currently cover the following Wasilla-area school district: Matanuska-Susitna Borough School District.

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.
