Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Taylor District Curriculum
Writing, a part of the language arts curriculum, is demonstrated in various ways as the students learn the skills needed to be successful writers. Teachers show students what is expected, as students discover the various genres in writing, through classroom instruction, demonstration and through small group interactions. Textbooks and novels are additional sources for these skills. Students find out how to apply the tools acquired in language arts in their future lives.
The science curriculum includes the study of physics. In the early years, students learn the basics of physics through physical examples, such as pushing a ball with their hands, or stopping one. As they progress through school they discover Newton’s Laws of Motion and how they apply to the actions around them. In high school they observe the movement of a bowling ball down a bowling lane and they look at how these laws apply to a doll attached to a moving bungee cord.

Taylor District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Taylor Independent School District provides each student an excellent education by encouraging teachers to show their creativity in employing the standards provided in the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills. The framework for each subject lays out the skills and knowledge that students should develop and follows along major strands of the subject. This helps students use what they have already learned to develop deeper knowledge and awareness in each subject area. Project-based learning is also emphasized so that students can develop both collaborative and independent learning skills.
We currently cover the following Taylor-area school district: Taylor Independent School District.

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 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: Positive Discipline
Most people learn better from encouragement than they do from criticism. This includes children. To help parents with this kind of discipline, here are three ideas. First of all parents need to realize that it is the behavior that is bad, not the child. Instead of telling a child they are bad, realize that it was the action that was bad. This allows them to see that he is in control of how he behaves. Next, parents can help a child express feelings through words. These words can include angry, frustrated or disappointed as well as other. This way they can reflect on and identify their feelings. Finally, a parent can help a child see how he can act if the issue comes up again. This can be done through role-playing or by asking the child what they can to the next time this issue comes up, and then work through it together. For other ideas parents can talk with school counselors, or teachers.
