Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Donna District Curriculum
Geometry is a part of the mathematics curriculum at Donna Schools. Students begin their education in this area by learning the characteristics of basic shapes, such as squares and circles, and then introduce them to more complex shapes like cubes, pyramids and others. Students use what they learn to find these shapes in their world around them. The students then learn how to find the size of a shape, both on the outside and the inside. This information they are able to use to measure the square footage of a room, or a yard.
Students learn the different aspects of government as a part of the social studies curriculum. When students begin school they are introduced to laws, in the form of rules, which are used in a classroom, school and at home. These examples are then explored to see how the rules came to be and the steps needed to change them. Comparisons are then made to the laws in a state and to run a country, how changing a law at this level differs from the earlier studied examples.

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: Encouraging Giftedness
When a parent hears that their child is gifted, their first response is pride. Quite often, the next one is how to encourage them. Some ways to help is to be aware that often these children wear their emotions on their sleeves, and are more sensitive, usually more than their classmates. Let them see that their emotions are normal for them, and then the parents can share times when they have felt intense emotions. Parents should remember when a child tests their limits, to discipline them normally. Many gifted children respond to verbal expectations and may need a reminder of the rules. If they are feeling in need of conversations with their parents, they should be allowed to talk with the knowledge that their parents will listen. Parents of gifted children need to remember that their child may be gifted but they are also a child and have the same needs as others.
