Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Dickinson District Curriculum
The study of government is included in the Social Studies curriculum. The students begin by learning who is considered to be leaders, like their teachers, principals and community helpers. The students continue on to look into the people that are included in the running of levels of government and how the citizens, and leaders, choose the rules that the members of the community live by. Included in this study is the study of other governments and the history behind their developments.
Dickinson schools show students that the study of science can not only be interesting but fun. The students at first are introduced to science in their surroundings. This may include field trips, or hands-on exploration. Then through the use of special tools, such as magnifying glasses, and tweezers, students begin to take things apart or to examine them more closely. When they enter high school, they learn about the importance of following rules by looking at lab safety. They can then take these rules and apply them to ecology, molecules, cells, heredity and so much more.

Dickinson District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Dickinson Independent School District connects their curriculum, which is based on the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills, with their community. By including family and community members, this school shows students that their education is a community effort. Through community partnerships, students are often able to extend their learning beyond the classroom and take on internships or receive job shadowing opportunities. There are also extracurricular organizations for students to join so they can personalize aspects of their educational experience and pursue areas of interest.
We currently cover the following Dickinson-area school district: Dickinson 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: The Sensitive Child
The sensitive child is more prone to cry at the smallest of things. These children can be seen as being overly-dramatic, but there may be more to it than that. These children were born this way, they do not lack confidence, or social skills, and they do have a gift. This is that they experience more from the world than others do. With the realization that this trait is a part of the child, parents should realize that trying to change the child should not be done. Instead show him that they are loved, no matter what. Show them that they have strengths, their imagination, their view of experiences and their focus. Also this child should not be pushed into things, which leads to distress. Instead nudge them gently. With these hints, the child will begin to realize that they are special in their own way.
