Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Fredericksburg District Curriculum
The Science curriculum requires that by 7th grade students are scientifically literate in a number of areas. They are expected to understand scientific investigation and reasoning, matter and energy focusing on the role of the Sun in other biological and environmental processes, and force, motion, and energy as seen in the human body, plant life, and through weather patterns. During middle school, students are also expected to make observations and record information using the International System of Units.
Geography is a part of the Social Studies curriculum. At Fredricksburg Independent School District geography helps the students become aware of the different cultures, lifestyles, countries and maps throughout the world. They discover how to use each of these and how to find similarities and differences. Migration patterns of humans are examined as well and students learn about the movements of various world cultures in history. By studying how various groups of people live throughout the world, they also discover how similar we all are.

Fredericksburg District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The curriculum at Fredricksburg Independent School District is based on the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills. This allows the school to create materials that will allow the students to be prepared for the ever-changing global community while obtaining an excellent education. The curriculum lists a series of standards that students should meet in each subject. The subject area topics remain the same throughout a students education but the standards increase in complexity.

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: Family-Paired Reading
One way that a parent can help a child to increase their fluency in reading is to take part in family-paired reading. This method calls for the child to choose a book that they are comfortable reading. They then sit down with the parent and begins reading until they make a mistake. At this point the parent joins in reading until the child signals that they are ready take over again. This continues for about 15 minutes. After they finish reading, the parent and the child talk about what they read, then the parent needs to praise the child for any improvements that have been made or for letting the parent know when he wanted to take over again. By doing this nightly, the child will improve in fluency and comprehension skills.
