Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Leander District Curriculum
The science curriculum at Leander Schools looks at different systems. This includes water cycles, plants, rocks and so on. When looking at organisms they look at the two systems that are used to move materials through it. They also look at erosion and weathering and look at how it changes a larger system, the environment. By beginning their studies looking at an item and seeing what systems are included in it, students begin to see the broader pictures throughout the world.
Language Arts, at Leander Schools, encourages students to ask questions about anything that they are reading. Beginning in kindergarten teachers ask students questions about stories, plus they answer questions from students. By the time they are in high school students approach material with question like "What is the author doing?" And "How does the context influence the meaning?" They are asked to write analytic essays guided by the overarching themes of each work of literature.

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: Teen Finances
The teen years are often a time when they begin to earn money and show a desire to learn how to budget. These are the years when parents need to share their knowledge of budgeting. When paying bills, ask the teen to sit down and see how the finances are handled, including budgeting for future expenditures. This exercise can help teens learn about what to do to with their money and how to save. Of course, for a teen to get a job helps them to truly understand the value of their finances and helps them to develop the habits of financial planning. This is an area of personal responsibility that most teens do well in exploring and from which a great many life lessons can be gained.
