Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Mercedes District Curriculum
Social Studies is the study of various aspects of the human life. In the social studies’ curriculum at Mercedes Schools, students are introduced to geographical, political, social, economic and historical events in the different regions of the world. The students begin by being introduced to the topic from areas they already familiar with. They may learn about how laws, or rules, are woven throughout their lives. As they continue, this foundation is added onto by learning the voice that a person, or population, has in the making of these rules.
Literacy is a part of the Language Arts curriculum at Mercedes ISD. They look at the elements that make up the stories they read and write, then they examine different types of writing. They look for symbolism or dramatic interpretation in works from American literature, including from the Civil War and the aftermath of it. They also look at the African American literature and literature from other countries.

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 With A Child’s Homework
Parents can become confused when it comes to helping with a child’s homework. They may be unsure what the best way might be to help. Here are some ways that can be helpful. First, help a child with providing a quiet and organized place for work. This location should be away from television noise and from the computer and telephone. Provide them with the tools they may need like a calculator, resource books, and writing utensils. Also help them get into a routine that works best for them. This may be before school, right after school, or after a small break, but save activities such as television or computer time for after homework. Parents also need to remember that what works for one child may not work for another. Provide them with what works best for them to help them succeed.
