Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Jacinto City District Curriculum
One part of the curriculum at Jacinto City school 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 in both districts includes the subjects of earth and space science, environmental science, biology, physics and chemistry. Students are taught to use evidence to construct verifiable explanations to natural phenomenon and how to communicate their scientific discoveries. They learn how to distinguish between hypotheses and theories and how to evaluate and construct models, make inferences, and predict trends from scientific data. They learn the proper methods to perform calculations and use scientific notation in their work.

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: Culture and Education
Culture has a bit impact on how children learn. There are some cultures that believe that working with other students is cheating while others see it as a way to give or receive assistance. There are places where it is believed that children should be quiet during the school day and eye contact should be avoided. Another cultural belief is that all material should be considered communal while others believe that items belong to the individual. The differences in cultural history and ideologies need to be considered in the classroom and if children get together to study at home so they can obtain knowledge in a way that is suitable to them. Understanding these differences, and bringing them into the classroom, can help expose children to the different ways that societies function around the world.
