Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Midland District Curriculum
The Mathematics curriculum begins by introducing children to counting. From here students learn how to use sets of items to demonstrate adding and subtracting. With this as a foundation, students are able to learn how to learn to work with numbers of all kinds. When they reach high school and take algebra they will be able to use the website College Preparatory Mathematics, then in geometry they use videos and several websites to enrich their experience.
In the English curriculum, students begin by learning how to recognize when words rhyme and how to retell one or two events of a story. By fifth grade they learn how to share their experiences with a story with others in their class. This helps the students to examine the stories at a deeper level to help make them personal to them. These students have the opportunity to learn how to make each book they read a part of them by different means of reflecting on the text.

Midland District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Midland Independent School District bases their curriculum on the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills. With this foundation, students are able to access a curriculum that reaches each student and helps them to excel. The curriculum provides classroom teachers with a series of objectives and standards they can use to plan their instruction; it does not determine how a teacher should deliver the objectives, the goal is to ensure all students are taught to the same high quality standards.
We currently cover the following Midland-area school district: Midland Independent School District.

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 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: Creative Writing Activities
Children may be asked to create an original work of writing. To some this is easy to do, for others it is very difficult. If there is a child that struggles to come up with topics to write about, here are some ideas to give them boost. Ask the child to imagine how something happened, originally. For example, they could write about why clouds are in the sky, or how the giraffe got its neck. Another activity is to show the child a picture or postcard and ask them to create a story about it, or ask them to draw a cartoon. Any of these activities might cause a spark of creativity to light up within the child.
