Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lamesa District Curriculum
The goals for Social Studies include teaching the children to become responsible citizens, not only locally, but worldwide. They also become aware and understand contemporary issues as well as a healthy self-concept. Throughout their education, students discover how social scientists do their work and how our understanding of urban regions, economic development and cultural change. When they complete their education they also are expected to have a sense of their own heritage as well as cultures and ethnic groups.
A part of the Texas Essential Skills and Knowledge for Math is operations and algebraic thinking. Multiplication and division are the two operations that are focused on before students start middle school. Students will eventually move beyond multiplication problems involving the basic facts and multiply numbers with two digits. They will be asked to solve for the "product" and the "quotient"; these are the solutions when multiplying and dividing numbers, respectively. They will understand what factors—the numbers that are multiplied together--are and become familiar with division terms such as the dividend and divisor.

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 Kids Get the Most Out of Leisure Time
Children need time to relax, as do their parents. There are ways to combine this fun time with learning time. Parents, first of all, can replace the high tech devices that the child turns to with board or card games, or other activities that allow for face-to-face time. This applies to the parents also, so the family can enjoy the time without any distractions from technology. Next, parents can model the behavior desired. When with the child give they should give them their entire attention, parents should not text, or answer phone calls during this time. Even watching television can be a relaxing, but learning time. While watching a show, as a family, take time to talk about what was being watched. This helps to build a child’s memory and conversational skills. By thinking about the activities the parent enjoys doing when down, the child can benefit.
