Educating Our Parents: Understanding the DeSoto District Curriculum
Social Studies at DeSoto Schools introduce students to life around them. Students learn the history of their city, and state. Then, after they have learned this, the students learn about the United States and the history of the colonization and the cultures that have combined to create this nation. The curriculum also includes lessons on the other cultures around the world and the history behind each of them.
The science curriculum at DeSoto Schools teaches students to become fluent readers. This begins by teaching children how to read from left to right and from top to bottom. After this students begin to discover how to read by learning sight words. Soon, students are learning about different strategies to help them decode words. These include looking at the first and last letter of the word and breaking a larger word into segments. By the time they graduate, students learn about different genres, as well as how to recognize perspective and author’s view.

Testimonials and Case Studies from Our Parents
SchoolTutoring Academy 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.

SchoolTutoring Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades. Test Prep Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades.
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: Fifth Grade Language Arts
In the fifth grade, students are preparing to make the leap to middle school. This generally means that the students’ workload becomes a little more daunting. Curriculum may vary but usually students face book reports, spelling tests and reading lists. They are going to be faced with changes in their interpretation due to new information or their past. They will begin to recognize various genres, both in reading and writing. They will be able to use an author’s point to come to conclusions. In addition their spelling lists will become longer, with harder words and they will be expected to write legible, both in print and in cursive writing. By the end of the year, these students may be able to answer their parents’ questions in this subject area.
