Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Dumas District Curriculum
Students at Dumas Independent School District discover literature through the English curriculum. From elementary through high school, students learn how to create plot diagrams, to find the themes, location and characters in a story. Plus they find the author's voice and what kind of audience the story was written for. In high school they learn how to combine various subjects through stories such as Anne Bradstreet poetry or “How the World was Made." The skills they develop enable the students to break down any reading they face to find the answers they need.
The science curriculum includes the subjects of biology, chemistry, physics, ecology and the environment. Each of the students spend time learning from first-hand experiences in the field and in laboratory hours. They are taught how to observe, write scientific observations and thoughts, design and conduct experiments, and present their scientific findings.

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.
My daughter was very self-conscious about her difficulties with the math section of the SAT. SchoolTutoring Academy’s Academic Directors created an action plan that boosted my daughter’s score and confidence level.
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: Helping a Child with Textbook Homework
Many times a child will come home with an assignment to read from the textbook. This may seem straight forward, but many children will become overwhelmed with this type of assignments. To help them with this assignment first have them spend five minutes looking at the headings, maps, captions, pictures and graphs in the reading. Then ask them to share what the main idea was and how it relates to previous learning. If there are review questions, now is the time to look them over and see if the child can see where the answers may be. Next, ask them to read the pages carefully and see how they fit together. They can also place notes on the pages where they may have questions. Finally, have the child review for five minutes asking what they learned and what questions they have. With these steps, parents are helping children become more independent in the future with studying from a textbook.
