Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Pearsall District Curriculum
The English curriculum at Pearsall Independent School District helps build reading skills while the students study literary works, both fiction and non-fiction. While studying, the students learn how different authors use different approaches to help make their purpose clear and to reach the audiences. They also learn about how literary tools are used, such as connotations, structure and word origins. Students also develop the skills to distinguish the connotations of words with similar denotations.
To help build students confidence in reading, they need to learn a type of automatic inner dialogue while reading. They do this by asking questions about the story, the words, the characters intentions and so on. As they develop, students will begin to ask themselves the questions automatically. They should ask themselves why they are reading a selection and what they expect to learn, how the material is organized and what they already know about it. Finally, they need to determine if they need to vary their speed to understand new material.

Pearsall District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The curriculum at Pearsall Independent School District is based on the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills. The TEKS explains the learning expectations for each subject in elementary, middle and high school in a manner that builds upon what students have learned about in previous years. The standards include critical thinking skills and awareness of concepts that students will use in college and post-secondary life and calls for educators to provide opportunities to students to develop their interpersonal skills as well. Students are expected to be able to collaborate with others and communicate effectively, and to see how the value of their individual contributions to group projects.

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: Basic Questions for Teachers
At times, it feels like when a child goes to school parents become shy about asking questions concerning the child and their education. Here are some basic questions which every parent should know the answers to. First, every parent has the right to know what the child is learning in class. Every parent has access to the standards that are adopted for their state. This is a list of what a child should know and be able to do at the end of the school year. Each school can decide how it will cover the topics and the methods used. Another issue for parents is how their child is doing. This is evident from grades and comments received by the child but it is also a good idea to ask the teacher to inform the parents if there are special issues. Plus it is also useful to inform the teacher of any special concerns the parent may have, even if it occurs away from school.
