Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Richardson District Curriculum
The reading program at Richardson schools begins by demonstrating to children the basics of reading a book. The students are shown how to hold it and how to read from left to right. As the children continue in this subject, they learn different strategies to decipher words, such as looking at the picture. After the basics, children begin to read for learning, as they apply all the tools they have acquired to help them in other subjects.
Geometry is a part of the mathematics curriculum at Richardson schools. At first students learn the characteristics that make up simple shapes like a circle, square or a triangle. They then learn how to take these two-dimensional shapes to identify three-dimensional representations of the shapes. As they go on students learn how to find the measurements of a shape like the angles of the sides, the perimeter, or the volume of a shape. The equations that they learn through geometry help students become better problem-solvers after graduation.

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: The Role of School Counselors
School counselors, whether at the high, middle or elementary level, are jacks of all trades. However, many people do not know what these professionals purpose is. In addition to helping students with bullying or peer issues they can help to direct a student’s educational choices, plus help with study skills or college applications. They are there to help with emotional, social or academics issues that students may have. Often times, they are looked at as a buffer between the student and/or parent and the principal. Especially if they present themselves as unbiased when dealing with students.
