Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Richmond District Curriculum
The Lamar Consolidated Independent School District focuses on Math and Language Arts as the building blocks for other subject area learning. Students learn how to communicate their thoughts and read for meaning, and develop the abilities to write and speak from a critical perspective. In Math, the operational skills developed in the numeracy strand are capitalized on in the measurement and data analysis and algebra strands. The ability to work through problems precisely and be able to communicate mathematical thinking are goals of the math curriculum.
Science is a part of the curriculum at Lamar Consolidated Independent School District. Students begin by looking at subjects from a general viewpoint, then as they mature they look at each topic closer. While studying clouds, they begin to learn the different types of clouds and what kind of weather they may predict. During the study of chemistry, students learn how substances can be combined or separated to form different substances. They continue in this way while studying life, ecology, and more. This study shows students how to look beyond the surface of things to see things from different viewpoints.

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: Building a Child's Interest in Astronomy
Astronomy is a part of each child's science curriculum. Some children take to the subject easily, while other do not. To help a child create an interest in, and succeed, in this area, parents can take an active part in his area of education. This does not mean parents need to be experts, but when outside at night they can look up at the stars and begin a conversation with the child. By seeing what areas of astronomy excite the child, the parent can help direct the conversation. They can ask if the child can point out the Northern Star, of if they can share what phase the moon is in and what phase happens next. Parents can also talk about how the light from the stars that are being seen traveled light years. By opening up these areas of interest, a parent may be opening a new enthusiasm for the child.
