Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Big Spring District Curriculum
The Language Arts curriculum uses different workshops throughout the students' education. In elementary and middle schools these consist of reading or writing workshops that have different stations to help students learn specific concepts. When they enter high school, these workshops become task oriented. One class may work in groups to create brochures, where each student creates a paragraph separate from the others. They then can either edit it themselves, or they can allow another group member to help them.
From the introduction of Science to the students, they discover that using their senses to explore an item reveals more than just reading the words from a book. When they enter high school, they use lab time to discover the vascular system of a plant or explore cells with microscopes. They learn how to use computers and technology to share discoveries with other students. So when they are exploring, each student may discover more about an item than they expected and have the ability to communicate their findings.

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: Math Classes Needed For College Success
As a student enters high school parents, and students, begin to plan ahead to prepare for college. One area for them to consider is the classes in mathematics that may be needed to prepare for the next big step. Most colleges today encourage students to take classes in algebra, geometry and algebra II. However, if a student would like to make a better impression with an admission office or they desire to go to a more selective school, they should also consider taking classes in pre-calculus and AP calculus. By taking these additional classes students are showing that they are willing to take classes that are above the minimum. If a student desires to major in math or engineering, they may want to take, in their senior year, classes such as AP statistics, AP computer science or multi-variable calculus.
