Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Mesquite District Curriculum
The Reading curriculum at Mesquite Independent School District introduces students to many different types of writing, from a variety of authors. Educators also show students how to find and describe the settings, characters and other important ideas from a story by using many different texts, stories and novels. By the time these students have graduated, they will have a solid foundation in literature that will allow them to take these interpretative skills into the world and explore the world of literature.
Mesquite Independent School District approaches Mathematics with the idea of building a solid foundation and then they build on it brick-by-brick. Students begin by learning to apply one number to one item when counting a set. When mastered, students can then learn to use this skill to help visualize addition and subtraction. They continue to grow by learning how to compare and order numbers and to find when it is appropriate to use addition and subtraction.

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: Sixth Grade Mathematics
Grade by grade, students have added onto the knowledge gained. By sixth grade, these skills become more complex. By the end of the year students learn how to translate decimals into fractions and vice versa. This is also the year many teachers introduce negative numbers to the students. Statistics, Probability and Algebra are also introduced to sixth grade students. These generally are introduced by using coin tossing as examples. In addition, three-dimension figures are used in geometry and the cross-over into art is demonstrated to the students.
