Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Murillo District Curriculum
Geometry is a part of the mathematics curriculum at Hidalgo Independent School District. Students learn about coordinate and transformational geometry and how to derive and use the distance, slope, and midpoint formulas to verify geometric relationships. They also work with logical argument and constructions so they can distinguish between undefined terms and verify that a conjecture is false using a counterexample. Another topic is proof and congruence, and students learn how to verify theorems about angles.
Hidalgo Independent School District includes the subjects of biology and chemistry in the science curriculum. In biology, students learn about cells and how to investigate and explain cellular processes, including homeostasis and energy conversions. They also come to understand the stages of the cell cycle, and describe the roles of DNA and RNA. In chemistry, students learn about characteristics of matter and how to analyze the relationships between chemical and physical changes and use the Periodic Table to identify and explain the properties of chemical families.

Murillo District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Hidalgo Independent School District curriculum is based on the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS). College and career readiness standards have been adopted into the TEKS so to ensure students are receiving a rigorous education that will prepare them for post-secondary life. Some of the programs also used in the high schools include Advanced Placement, the International Baccalaureate program, dual credit, and Early College High School. Each of these offers an advanced, more globally focused approach to learn and in many cases offers students the chance to earn college credit in high school.
We currently cover the following Murillo-area school district: Hidalgo 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: Volunteering
Volunteering is an ideal way for students to learn responsibility as well as to give them a leg-up to be accepted in the college of their choice. An ideal volunteering position would also give the teen the opportunity to get a taste of a career. To begin, find the area that the teen is interested in. If a teen is interested in medicine, see if the local hospital or doctor’s office offers opportunities for volunteering. In addition, see if the volunteering position is available for long-term as colleges like seeing that a student is possible of committing. Before the interview, help the teen come up with some questions to ask. Then if they are not comfortable with the position allow them to continue looking. It is important that they are sincere in the interview and with themselves about if the job is a good fit. Then make sure that when applying for colleges the teen places the volunteering position on the application, along with skills used and time spent volunteering.
