Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Kerrville District Curriculum
The reading curriculum at Kerrville Schools begins by introducing students to basic reading skills. During the first years of school students learn decoding skills and build their sight word toolbox. Soon they begin to find out about the different characteristics that make up different genre of books. They study literary devices like symbolism and foreshadowing, and understand how authors use these devices to help craft their message. They also learn about text features that help them navigate non-fiction texts.
The social studies curriculum at Kerrville Schools helps students learn about their surroundings a little at a time. In the first years of school students learn about their community and the people that help it to run the way it does. They also find out about Texas and the history behind its statehood. By the time they finish high school students learn about the United States government and economic system as well as the governments and economies in other cultures.

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: SAT Math
When it comes to the SAT tests, the math section can be overwhelming. With a little knowledge of how to prepare for it, a student can face it with a little more confidence. Algebra and Geometry are needed before taking this test. Then plan on taking time to prepare for the math section. One way to prepare is to complete the practice sections of one of the SAT preparation books that can be found in a library or bookstore. Make sure to find the most current edition to make sure that the problems will be more like those on the test. Each math test has three sections with most of the problems being in multiple choice format. The areas to study include computations, algebra, probability/statistics, functions and geometry. With these few guidelines, hopefully the student will be able to breathe a little easier and rest before the test.
