Advanced math opportunities at the high school level include Pre-Calculus, Advanced Quantitative Reasoning, Discrete Mathematics, Algebraic Reasoning, and Statistics.
The science curriculum at Del Valle Independent School District include the subjects of biology, chemistry, physics, ecology, and earth and space science. There is also a focus on STEM and on teaching the skills and knowledge of science, technology engineering, and math in an integrated manner. In some programs, the arts is also integrated (STEAM) to give students an additional chance to develop their creative thinking. Each of the students spend time learning from first-hand experiences in the field and in laboratory hours.

Hornsby Bend District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Del Valle Independent School District follows the Texas Essential Skills and Knowledge (TEKS) as the curricular guidelines for core academics, electives, and college and career readiness initiatives. The curriculum is scaffolded so that student learning continually builds on what students have already learned, and they are able to use prior knowledge to understand new content. In high school, students have a number of college and career readiness initiatives that can connect them with their future goals. Students may take International Baccalaureate courses that offer a rigorous, internationally-focused learning experience or enroll in a dual credit program with a local college.
We currently cover the following Hornsby Bend-area school district: Del Valle Independent School District.

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: Applying for College
Applying to college is a long-process and one that students need to be prepared for. This is the student’s opportunity to rise to the top of the pile of applications, so they need to make sure they present themselves in the best light. Whether by joining an existing club or starting one of their own, students who put time into participating in activities outside the classroom often have an edge. Students should be aware, however, that some colleges require additional steps, such as meeting with recruitment officials for interviews. With so many applicants and only so many spots that can be filled, admission officers want to know that an applicant is sincere in their desire to attend their school.
