Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Mission District Curriculum
The science curriculum at Mission schools teaches students to use the tools around them to explore science. Students are exposed to various aquariums to discover about plant and animal life and the difference between freshwater and salt water. As they enter high school, they take the lessons learned to study biology, chemistry, or earth science. Another option is forensic science where they discover tools that are used at crime scenes, such as the appearance of different fabrics or fingerprints under the microscope.
Geometry is a part of the mathematics curriculum. At Mission schools, students learn about the basic shapes first. They learn the characteristics of each shape and they learn to create artwork from these shapes. In the next years, they learn how to recognize more complex shapes, such at cubes, how to measure the perimeter and the volume of these shapes. They also learn how to measure triangles and circles and how to create each of these on their own.

Mission District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Mission Consolidated Independent School District helps lead each student to success by implementing the Texas Essential Skills and Knowledge Resource System with their educators’ knowledge to create a curriculum that reaches each student. The curriculum lays out the key learning objectives that teachers should cover, although does not delineate the instructional methods best suited and allow teachers leeway in lesson planning. The standards which determine lesson plans are ultimately aligned with statewide assessments in the core subjects to ensure that all students are achieving proficiency in the subject.
We currently cover the following Mission-area school district: Mission Consolidated Independent School District.

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: How to Boost Early Literacy
Books can introduce children to a world of adventure and fantasy. To come into this world, some children need a little parental boost. Here are some ideas to consider. To help children understand the basics of reading, follow the words, while reading, with the finger. This shows children how to hold a book and in what direction the reader’s eye should go to make sense of the words. As you are reading, if there is a word that the child has a question about, answer the questions to encourage them to continue to be curious about things in a book. To help an early reader become familiar with letters, have a letter hunt on a page of a book. They will become comfortable with the alphabet, one letter at a time. Finally, ask the child if they can predict what is going to happen on the next page, or even by the end of the story. When finished with the book, go over the book with the child, and see if their prediction was what happened. If it differs, ask them how they think the story should have gone to reach the conclusion. With these few steps a new early reader will be on the way.
