Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Hitchcock District Curriculum
Students learn about numbers and equations through the Hitchcock and Santa Fe Independent School District's mathematics curriculum. The Mathematics curriculum is focused on the four essential concepts of operations with fractions, math facts, estimation, and math vocabulary. Students are expected to participate in challenges themed to reinforce these four principles. Students are also given activities to complete in short timed sections to enhance their memorization of key math facts.
The English Language Arts and Reading curriculum has implemented the Reading First program which focuses on early reading instruction for fostering advanced long term literacy. Students are expected to reach an accelerated level of reading comprehension preparing them for more advanced writing and research tasks. Students reading abilities are accessed by participating in Dynamic Indicators of Basic Literacy Skills (DIBLES) testing, which is geared toward successful participation in the Reading First program.

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.

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: Tips for College and Professional Applications
The Honors and Memberships section of an application or resume should be reserved for organizations that are professional, focused on academics or education, and related to specific skills that are helpful to becoming an educator. For example, one might list their acceptance into the National Honor Society, which recognizes academic excellence in students who achieve high marks throughout their education. Of course, extracurricular activities should only be listed if they are professional or academic, or if it demonstrates a credible leadership role. Candidates may list clubs that were related to writing or technology—for example—both essential skills for teaching. Individuals should note any leadership roles they had in these clubs and describe the education-related organizations in more detail. Candidates should typically avoid discussing non-high school activities here.
