Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Balch Springs District Curriculum
Students learn about using different symbols to represent different functions from the first year at school when they begin to learn the plus and minus signs. As the years progress they begin to learn different methods, such as tables, graphs, equations, and verbal descriptions, to relate information to real-world situations. Student’s ability to perform operations with, create models with, and communicate about their math thought is an essential goal of the curriculum.
The Science curriculum at Balch Springs schools demonstrates different cycles and processes to the students when they begin to learn about water cycles, or life systems. When they enter high school they begin to learn about the structure and functions of viruses to cells. They also learn how to demonstrate science processes like diffusion, viruses and cells. Through each of these topics students are able to learn about living systems that are within living systems. This opens their eyes to looking beyond the surface of things and to become scientists in the world.

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: Types of Reading
When students tell parents about what they have done in reading class, parents may become confused as to what some of the different terms mean. Independent reading is the time that a child spends reading quietly by themselves. They do not have anyone guiding them as to the pace they are reading, however students need to read at a level that aids in their comprehension. Read Aloud is when the teacher shares books that are aimed at the students’ interest level. The books are also at a level that the students are able to read themselves. Guided reading helps students learn reading strategies while they are reading with other students that are at their reading level. Shared reading is when a book is read by the teacher while students follow along. With this vocabulary, parents are able to talk with the children about their reading class with ease.
