Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Grand Prairie District Curriculum
Students at Grand Prairie Independent School District begin their math education by understanding that counting is placing a number to each item in a set. This sets them up to learn to add more to or to take away objects of the set to represent addition and subtraction. From this foundation, students are shown how to take this same concept and expand into multiplication and division. Before long, they are shown how to add to these ideas in algebra, statistics, and calculus.
Science at Grand Prairie Independent School District begins with the things that students are most familiar like plants and the seasons. These students learn that the flowers they see outside are made up of various parts, like roots, stems, and leaves. However, as they move into higher grades, these same students begin to see that there is much more to plants. They see that plants need photosynthesis to survive, and they learn what is needed for this process to happen. They then learn about the cells that make up a plant and the life cycles within this item.

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: Questions to Ask At Parent-Teacher Conferences
Whether it is an expected conference with a teacher, or one that has been scheduled for specific reasons, parents need to come away with a sense of what their child's life is like in the classroom, and how, as a parent, you can help. Some questions to consider asking at these times should concern the educational goals for the child and what the child's strengths and weakness are. These give the parent a sense of where assistance may be needed. In addition, questions concerning the child's behavior, if they are working up to their ability and how they are doing socially may also be addressed. No matter what the questions, though, make sure to find out how the teacher thinks the parent can help. These questions can help the student to have a successful school year.
