Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Boerne District Curriculum
The elementary math curriculum in Boerne Independent School District includes an introduction to concepts in geometry. Students sketch, describe, and classify triangles based on their features. The same skills are used with regard to quadrilaterals. Using a protractor, learners develop the ability to measure angles as well as describe them as right, obtuse, or acute. Area is a concept students learn to understand as well. Students find the area of various geometric and real-world figures. The concepts of translation, reflection, and rotation are also studied.
Part of the curriculum at Boerne Independent School District includes the study of Government. By learning about the formation of the United States Government students learn how to think critically about politics and civic life. They also gain an understanding of the working of the government and the political systems throughout the United States. They learn about the Constitution and Bill of Rights, and how the founding fathers arrived at these documents. Through the study of the amendments, students also learn about immigration and states' rights.

Boerne District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Boerne Independent School District follows the Texas Essential Skills and Knowledge (TEKS) curricular guidelines. The TEKS lays out a progression by which students develop knowledge in each core subject year by year. Critical thinking skills are built in at all levels so that students are engaged in thinking about what they are learning. The district schools provide kids with a safe, secure place in which to learn, develop, and achieve their highest potential. A wide variety of extracurricular programming, including clubs and sports, supplement the strong academic programs offered in both districts and provide students with further opportunities to learn and grow.

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: Helping the Dyslexic Child
When a child has dyslexia they may need some assistance in understanding what they read. Parents can them build tools that they can try in various situations. There may not be one best method, but there are many that can be tried. First, parents can model for the child how to substitute a word when they come to one they are not familiar with, or cannot comprehend. Parents can show how to picture the idea with the new word and see if it makes sense. If it does not work, they can try another. Graphic organizers can also be used to help a child organize what they are learning. There are many to choose from and by talking to a teacher, the parent can help find one that works the best. For other ideas, keep communications open with the school to see what other assistance they can suggest.
