Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Leon Valley District Curriculum
Leon Independent School District has a mathematics curriculum that shows students how to look for, and use, math throughout their learning. When they are in science there are many times when formulas are used, as there are in geography, students need to be familiar with how to work equations to solve these problems. Students are also shown how math can be found in poetry, literature and almost everywhere in music. By looking for math, students discover why this subject is so important throughout their lives.
Part of the curriculum at Leon Independent School District includes the study of Government. By learning about the formation of the United States Government students learn how to think critically about how the different branches of government should work and the role of state governments in the lives of its citizens. They also gain an understanding of the workings of social and economic policies and the political systems throughout the United States. They also study foreign countries to learn about different systems of government.

Testimonials and Case Studies from Our Parents
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.
My daughter was very self-conscious about her difficulties with the math section of the SAT. SchoolTutoring Academy’s Academic Directors created an action plan that boosted my daughter’s score and confidence level.
SchoolTutoring Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades. Test Prep Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades.
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: Different Learning Styles
There are several different ways that students learn in school. One of these is tactally, or by touching and feeling. Generally, this is one of the ways that young children learn but it can continue for some through high school and throughout their lives. These are the students that like to design and build things, quite often by moving or build with manipulatives. By knowing if a child is a tactual learner, parents and teachers can help make sure that material is presented in a way that they can relate to. Some learn by writing, listening, watching, or touching. The kinesthetic learner learns by moving things, or themselves as they experience education. These kids enjoy using manipulative and physically moving things. They also do very well when included in real-life action. By knowing how these students learn the best, educators, and parents, can help to excel in school.
