Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Odessa District Curriculum
The Science Curriculum at Odessa Schools begins the students on their journey by showing them their world through the eyes of a scientist. Students in first grade are asked to look and draw the moon every night for two weeks. They learn how the moon has cycles, like so many other things in the world. Students take this knowledge and then discover the history of space travel and information on various celestial items. They also learn about the makeup of nature, from molecules and cells, to the parts of items.
Odessa schools take a balanced approach to their literary curriculum. This begins in the first years by introducing children to a variety of books which pertain to the topics they may be learning in other areas. Through their educational years, students are exposed to many different reading experiences. They read aloud, share reading with others, and experience guided reading as well as reading conferences and independent reading.

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: A Little Goes a Long Way
Students that have parents that take the extra step to ensure a full childhood strive harder and usually are more successful. Some things that parents can do to help their child include reading to the child, at least three times a week. Let the child pick out the book and use this time to enjoy your time together. Parents also need to communicate with the teachers. This can include going to open houses, or conferences. Parents can also become a part of the PTA or help with plays or talent shows or other school events. This involvement shows care and concern for the child's life. One other thing that parents can do for their children is to encourage them to build friends away from school. Perhaps host a playdate or let the friends join an activity together.
