Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Commerce District Curriculum
The Math curriculum was developed to introduce students to numbers and operations, proportionality, expressions, equations, and relationships, measurement and data, and personal financial literacy. In financial literacy, students explore the importance of establishing credit and maintaining good credit in order to make financial goals more attainable. Basic investment terminology is introduced as well, including stocks, bonds, CDs, money market accounts, and the like. There is an analysis of credit and debt issues as well.
The Science curriculum calls upon students to understand scientific investigations and reasoning and be able to work through the processes of testing and proving hypotheses. During middle school, topics studied include matter and energy, force, motion, and energy, earth and space, and organisms and environments. They learn about interdependence and how these systems work together. In high school, full year courses in these topics as well as engineering, integrated physics and chemistry, and other advanced options are available.

Commerce District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Commerce Independent School District use the TEKS, Texas Essential Skills and Knowledge, curriculum in all of their schools. The curriculum is standards-based and uses the same topics to deepen students understanding of the subject each year. The topics include numbers and operations, algebraic relationships, shapes and measurements, and probabilities and data in Math and the grade-level expectations represent what students should master each year. This framework helps students build upon prior knowledge which they can also use as a basis for critical reflection, which supports the goal of teaching students to think critically.
We currently cover the following Commerce-area school district: Commerce Independent School District.

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: Reading Fluency
When it comes to becoming a good reader, children need to be able to do more than sound out words and read a sentence. A fluent reader is someone that can read with comprehension, confidence and timing. Parents can help their child by demonstrating fluent reading by reading out loud, with an expressive voice, to the child. Parents also need to allow the child enough time to practice this skill. The more they practice the sooner this will become a natural part of a child’s reading. While the child reads, parents can see how the child does with accuracy, tone, emphasis and emotion. This will give them a benchmark from which to grow. Along with this parents can make reading fun by working fun activities in with the reading. Perhaps the child would like to direct a production of the story, or they could create a news story from the book.
