Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Hereford District Curriculum
The English curriculum at Hereford ISD includes writing. Students begin by learning how to make letters, sentences and paragraphs so they can express their thoughts through words. They then begin to explore different types of writing, such as drama, informational, and short stories. Many of their skills are discovered by incorporating the book they read into their lessons. Through these works they can learn how to create and support a thesis statement and how to write for an audience.
Through the science curriculum at Hereford schools, students learn the skills needed to explore the world around them. They begin to learn the scientific method by wondering how and why certain things work. They then learn how to discover the answers by field and laboratory work, including finding things that can work as controls and variables. When the students discover their answers, or sometimes they do not, they can then see that they can research their surroundings to make many other discoveries.

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: Listening to a Child
There are times when a child will do whatever they can to ignore an adult when they are talking to them. This includes not telling the adult why they are being ignored. To help with this form of miscommunication here are some tips to try. Pay attention to the child’s body language. If they are slumped over, or answering with phrases like whatever, parents need to see that there is something that is troubling him. Another thing to try is to mirror them. By naming this emotion or bringing their attention to it the parent shows that the door to communication is open. If this doesn’t work, try some steps to active listening. While the child is talking, do not interrupt, this includes with things that can draw the attention away from the child. Then, before answering the child, confirm their feelings so they know that they are being listened to. With these steps, communication will more likely be an two-way conversation.
