Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Hondo District Curriculum
In the English language arts curriculum the focus in reading equally covers fiction and informational texts and the writing curriculum requires that students be able to write for a variety of purposes. These foundational skills are used throughout all subject areas which is why there is such a heavy emphasis on these abilities. Language use, grammar, and the development of voice and tone are also worked on so that students become strong communicators who can effectively write and engage in discussion.
In the mathematics curriculum at Hondo Independent School District, students learn how to work with numbers to find the solutions needed. They begin by learning how to assign a numerical value to items in a set. They then learn how to combine or take away items to come up with a new value. After they have mastered these basic items, they then learn how to add, subtract, multiply and divide numbers and how to combine each of these in formulas to find complex solutions. The skills learned in this subject are used each day of the students' lives, as is demonstrated throughout the math classes.

SchoolTutoring Academy Increased My SAT Score By 200 Points

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: Preparing for Middle School
Preparing for Middle School Middle School can be a scary time for children. It is a stressful time as they are going through so many changes in just a few years. There a few ways that parents can make preparations for their children at this time. First, help take away some uncertainty by scheduling a visit to the school. If a copy of their schedule is available, parent and child can walk from room to room, to help find the classes, lunchroom, gym and locker. When preparing school supplies it is tempting to buy one of the largest backpacks available. Parents need to remember that the students just need it large enough to carry the materials needed, not extra, unnecessary things. Plus a smaller pack will help the child’s back. Another way for parents to prepare for this time is to stay up to date on the changes that the child will be going through, including emotionally, physically and intellectually.
