Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Plano District Curriculum
Students at Plano schools take small steps when they first learn how to write. The writing curriculum is set up so that the students become familiar with the letters that make up their names. They continue on by learning all the letters of the alphabet and how to form each one. As they go through middle and high school, they learn about types of writing like persuasive and narrative. They also learn how to research, create rough drafts and edit papers before coming up with a final draft.
The geography curriculum at Plano schools begins with students learning the characteristics of basic shapes. They then observe the world around them to look for examples of these shapes. Within the next few years the students discover more complex shapes, such as pentagons, plus they learn how to find the perimeter of the simple and complex shapes. Next they learn how to find the volume of a shape by using examples that they are familiar with, like a swimming pool.

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: How to Encourage Class Participation
Many parents remember the feeling of trepidation when a teacher would ask them for an answer. Most children go through this same feeling, but it can cause some of them to avoid class participation. Here are a few ideas that parents can use at home to help their children. The first idea is to encourage the child in asking questions while out on errands with a parent. Allow them to ask the mailman, or the bank teller about things that make them curious. This will help them see that it is all right to talk to grown-ups. Next, when asking a child what they did at school that day, listen to their response and then encourage then to switch roles with you and allow them to ask you what you did that day. Finally, when a child asks a question that a grown-up is unsure how to answer, look the answer up together. This allows them to see that there is not anyone who has all of the answers, but there are ways to find them. With these activities, and others that parents can devise, the child will begin to become more comfortable with the knowledge that they have and will be willing to share it in class.
