Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Laredo District Curriculum
The reading curriculum at Laredo schools begin by using books that may be familiar to children, such as the Berenstain Bears or Curious George. In this way, students learn that different authors may present information in different ways. As the students become older, they look at literature as a source of information and adventure. They also learn the elements that make up a story and how the author places their view in books.
Laredo Schools teach their students about social studies by beginning with introducing students to the people of their community that they see everyday, like the principal, or a police officer. The students continue to learn about the government and the documents that are behind the laws of the state and country. By the time they graduate, students will have become familiar with the people of their own state and country, but also those of other countries. They learn that each person impacts their country, or even the world.

SchoolTutoring Academy 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.

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: Balanced Brain Activities
There have been theories presented about one side of the brain being more dominant or being responsible for different aspects of a person's life. Now there are ways to help a child strengthen both sides of the brain. This is thought to help digestion, the immune system and intelligence. One way to help balance the brain's strength is to have the child perform activities that cross the body. They can march in place while placing the right hand on the left knee, etc., or they can learn how to juggle. Another way to strengthen both sides of the brain at the same time is to ask the child to list as many words as they can beginning with the same letter. Repeat this activity every so often to see if they can think of more words. Finally a way to increase the amount of oxygen to the brain, thus improving brain function, is to enroll in a parent-child yoga class. Each of these activities are fun for the child and will help to balance the child's, and parents, brain-power.
