Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Pecos District Curriculum
The Science curriculum at Pecos-Barstow-Toyah Independent School District include the study of space. From the beginning, students learn the characteristics of the planets, history of space travel, and the science behind it. They also look at astronomy and determine how it was used by ancient civilizations. This shows the constancy of space as far as travel and determining important events throughout the year. In high school, students can explore this further through topics in astrophysics.
The Mathematics curriculum includes the use of formulas. This can include simple addition, and subtraction which is learned in the early years as well as those used in algebra when studying graphs to find the direction, rate and slope of a person who is walking. The students also are asked to create an original story problem to reflect what is they learned each day. Learners also utilize coordinates to determine the midpoint, slope, and length of lines as well. The study of formulas and coordinates help the students become better problem-solvers.

Pecos District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Pecos-Barstow-Toyah Independent School District follows the guidelines set forth in the Texas Essential Skills and Knowledge curriculum. This is a comprehensive curriculum that provides high quality standards of learning in all academic subjects, electives, and career-related programs. The standards include many expectations for students to think critically about what they are learning and progress so that students are doing increasingly independent and complex work in high school. At the high school level, students are also offered a range of programs that connect with their personal and professional interests and are designed to prepare them for their college and career goals.
We currently cover the following Pecos-area school district: Pecos-Barstow-Toyah Independent School District.

SchoolTutoring Academy 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.

SchoolTutoring Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades. Test Prep Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades.
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: Types of Reading
Teachers often send home a list of the types of reading that a child may experience in a day, however, without an explanation of these types they are just terms on a page. Throughout a day a student may be exposed to independent reading when they are encouraged to read books of their own choosing. They may then be asked to share a report on the book or not. Students also spend time in guided reading moments. This is when they read in small groups with students at about the same reading level. There is also shared reading when a teacher may guide the classroom through a story. This is often done with big books. There may be other methods used, and may be clarified by discussing them with the teacher.
