Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Gonzales District Curriculum
The Science curriculum is designed to introduce students to the world from a different perspective. Students begin by looking at the physical characteristics of item. They then build onto this by looking at the cycles that help to create the item being examined. From here the study of science continues on to look at the molecules and atoms that are included in every item on earth and in the environment. This includes how elements react with other elements. Through learning how to look at the world as scientists do, students also learn to look at other things in their lives closely.
The English Language Arts and Reading curriculum introduces students to a variety of types of texts and helps them develop analytic and critical reading skills for both fiction and non-fiction. Language study is an important component of the curriculum and grammar, vocabulary and conventions of the language are all taught. In conjunction with reading, students learn how to write in a variety of styles and begin to develop their voice. In high school, writing courses include Creative Writing, Journalism, and Research and Technical Writing.

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: Helping Students with Disabilities with Homework
Homework that is assigned by teachers serve different purposes such as to give additional learning time, build study and organizational skills and to help keep parents informed. Students that have disabilities may see it as a waste of time. Parents can help overcome this. First lines of communication need to be open between the parent and the teacher to make sure that assignments are clear and not too lengthy. Next, ask what the policies are for late, or missing work and if there are any adaptations available. At home parents can set up a homework area that is separated from distractions and is set up with the materials that may be needed. Finally, check a homework journal to make sure that all assignments have been completed and that the child knows where it is so they can make sure to turn it in. Helping a child with their work only takes a little bit of time, but can prove to be helpful to all involved.
