Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Murphy District Curriculum
The students at Plano Independent School District are exposed to the ways that mathematics is relevant to their lives from the first days of school. They learn how to use numbers to count objects, or to find out how much money is in front of them. They then learn to take this skill further as they learn how to use math to find how much of a discount a sale saves them on an item or how much they can earn from a job by knowing how much they can earn per hour.
Geography is part of the Social Studies curriculum at Plano Independent School District. Through this subject the students learn how each country is similar and different. Students learn the different land and water forms throughout the world, along with how each of these may have formed. Students also find how each culture is different and how they are similar. They discover the different types of government and the role that the people have, or do not have, in the running of the country. They also learn about the different roles people play in a functioning society.

Murphy District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Plano Independent School District empowers students to live successful lives while attending school and after graduation. This is possible by the creative curriculum developed by the staff and built around The Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills. The subjects are broken down along major topics and students’ knowledge is deepened each year through established grade level expectations. These students are shown how to use their math, science, literacy, and communication skills in everyday situations so they can become life-long problem solvers.
We currently cover the following Murphy-area school district: Plano 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: Kids and Nature
If a child prefers to spend time in front of the television instead of spending time outdoors, here are some ideas to help them become closer with nature. To begin, try to take a walk with the child. While walking, observe natural items. On future walks look at how these items change. A natural environment can also be created by adopting a pet, or tending a flower, vegetable or herb garden. Some kids may have aversions to getting dirty, but for them visiting an Arboretum or other type of activity may bridge the divide. By connecting the child to nature, they may become calmer, helping them to succeed in homework or academic areas. Parents and children can also go to the yard and build caves, make mud pies, or even splash in water. By doing this with the child, it will give the child permission to explore and have fun in nature.
