Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Austin District Curriculum
In Mathematics, children are taught with a hands-on approach. Relevant software is used in order to conceptualize and integrate students with the necessary skills they may be using in the future, including but not limited to: Geometer's Sketchpad Software, Fathom Software, Understanding Math Software, and FastMath Software. The curriculum is based on solving real world problems for students to gain an actual understanding of the problems ahead. They are asked to explain their solutions, and be able to apply their knowledge to various different settings. From the elementary years, basic arithmetic is taught, advancing slowly to algebra and geometry in more senior years. Minimum grade requirements are slightly elevated in order to ensure that no student graduates without clearly understanding the subject.
English Language Arts is taught in a way which considers all students thinkers, innovators, writers, and thinkers. Students are guided through the necessary steps in order to make sense of words and understand their significance, and furthermore construct their own literary works.

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.
