Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Alvin District Curriculum
Geography is a part of the social studies curriculum at Alvin Schools. Through their years at school, students learn that there are different ways to learn a topic. They are presented these different ways in their class work. Students learn to take notes during lectures. They also learn how to brainstorm, read texts, watch videos and listen to speakers. Through these and many other methods, students learn to find the method that they can use to learn the best and then apply it to their life after graduation.
The mathematics curriculum at Alvin Schools shows students that they can use formulas to help them in many different ways. Students learn how to break equations down to see how a problem can be solved from different views. They continue to learn different properties through graduation. While in high school they learn Fibonacci’s sequence, Pythagorean Theorem and Pascal’s Triangle. Each of these is used to aid students and to show them that if they work through each problem step-by-step, they can solve almost anything they confront.

Alvin District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Alvin Schools helps to create citizens that are ready for the ever-changing global environment by basing their curriculum on the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills then integrating the knowledge of their educators. The curriculum details the skills and knowledge which students should develop, but the learning objectives are written broadly so that teachers can determine the best way to teach their lessons to the students in their class.
We currently cover the following Alvin-area school district: Alvin Independent 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.

Chalk Talk: Kindergarten Readiness
It is useful, when preparing a child for kindergarten, to know what skills will be useful for them to succeed. The kindergarten age child needs practice writing their name with uppercase and lowercase letters. This can be made fun by practicing with sand, shaving cream or more. While doing this, the child can also begin learning the letters of the alphabets and the sounds that go with each letter. Help the child learn how to count by counting throughout the day. Have them count the number of grapes they are going to eat or the number of items in the clean laundry. Also help them to recognize numbers. Other skills that are needed are shape and color recognitions and development of fine motor skills by writing and cutting. While reading to a child follow along with the finger to prepare them for reading and ask them questions about the reading. Finally give the child chances to play with other children.
