Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lackland District Curriculum
In the elementary Language Arts curriculum, students are introduced to the basics of reading while also starting the rudimentary skills of analyzing stories and characters. The intermediate grade levels focus on phonics, vocabulary, spelling, grammar, and handwriting. By the secondary grades, writing is focused on more, and students are reading and responding to more complex novels, poetry, and literature. Students are expected to have a firm grasp of grammar and spelling (although, many do not) and are not separately assessed on these things.
IIn Math, students develop problem-solving skills in numerical operations, algebra, geometry, and data analysis. Skills are broken down and often taught using a workshop model. These workshops begin with a focused lesson during which the teacher explicitly models specific skills; after that, students work on the skill(s)—problem solving—independently. Students will engage in math games, centers, and small-group and one-on-one instruction. Math workshops conclude with a group share to discuss students’ thinking and make sure they understand the “big ideas.”

Lackland District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The curriculum at Lackland Independent School District is based on the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills. The district’s curriculum was designed with rigor in mind and seeks to prepare students for college and career. Likewise, students at each school take part in courses and activities that promote understanding of technology and other important 21st century skills. These skills and knowledge are acquired in and out of the classroom, with various extracurricular programs providing students additional opportunities for learning and growth. The district also offers a multitude of resources for students to achieve their highest potential.

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: Helping to Build a Child’s Self-Esteem
When a child has a sense of self-esteem they are open of feelings of love, acceptance, safety and well-being. By having a parent that is committed to them in a responsive, responsible way, they are shown how to trust and succeed in their endeavors. Communication is also important between parents and children. Through back and forth exchanges the child grows in intellect and develops strong emotional bonds with the parent. Reasonable and consistent boundaries are also needed to build self-esteem at they help the child feel safe and loved. Finally, showing an appreciation, more than praise, for a child’s efforts and interest will help them grow. By modeling the actions of a person with good self-esteem, the parents provide guidance in ways that they may never be aware of.
