Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Abilene District Curriculum
The Abilene schools use many different tools to help educate students in mathematics. Beginning in kindergarten they use unifix cubes, and socks to help teach patterns, sorting and classifying. The use of manipulatives continues as the students get older. By third grade they look for everyday life examples where mathematics is used. Even in middle and high school students are taught by using items and examples that are at hand to help them better grasp concepts taught in class.
The reading curriculum starts by introducing children to books that are either fiction or non-fiction. The students are then encouraged to find books, either in the classroom or at home, that follow the themes of the week. In first grade Accelerated Reader is introduced. This is used to help reach the reader at the level they are at and to help them progress at their own speed. Novels are introduced in third grade, then in the next few years students learn about character and plot development, different genres and the author's point of view in a book.

Abilene District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Abilene Independent School District uses, as a template, the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills. They then build upon this foundation with tools that enhance the education of each child like the use of hands-on class projects and technology in the classroom. This framework provides the series of learning objectives that should be taught at each grade level and the intended goals for learning. The objectives are tested through the statewide assessments in core subjects.
We currently cover the following Abilene-area school district: Abilene Independent School District.

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: Getting Involved In Your Child's School
One way to stay up on a child's activities at school is to volunteer. If this is a new world from a parent, they may be confused as to how to start. First of all, stay connected with the school. Many schools send out newsletters where they talk about upcoming events. When one is listed, call the school and see if there is an area that needs help. Talking with a teacher also can lead to volunteering times. Teachers become overwhelmed with the little things that need to be done to reach the students. They may need papers files, or perhaps a bulletin board assembled. They also may need an extra set of ears to help a child become a better reader. By staying in touch with the teacher the doorway to volunteering can be opened.
