Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Greatwood District Curriculum
One part of the curriculum at Lamar Consolidated Independent School District is history. The educators use a variety of resources to make history come to life for the students. Whether it is literature, newspapers, films or primary sources, the students become aware of the people and events that make up this subject. They also take the information from these sources to then research a person well enough to debate an issue from that historical person's viewpoint. When they enter their career of choice, these students will be aware of the difference one person can make in history.
The science curriculum at Lamar Consolidated Independent School District includes the subjects of biology, physics and chemistry. Each of these are taught from the general aspect of the subjects to more specifics. In the study of biology, the students begin by looking at the entire body, or plant. From here the students will look at the general parts that make up the whole. By the time they graduate, they will have discovered the molecules and atoms that are found in each and the purpose of these to help the item to live.

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: The Positive Side of Mistakes
Students are taught early that there are right and wrong answers. This can lead to stress or lessen a child's feelings of self-worth. Parents can help children by helping the child see that making a mistake is not a failure. Parents should be positive about the efforts that the child made, and correct them in a neutral tone so they don't feel embarrassed or upset. Many discoveries have been made by people making mistakes. If parents help a child see that the error helped the child learn something about a topic. Children need to be reminded of how much they have learned in their lives, many times by trying something again and again until they learned a better way of doing something. In order to learn something new, they may have to be open to exploring the options that are open to them.
