Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Robstown District Curriculum
Geography is a part of the Social Studies curriculum. At Robstown Independent School District, students begin this study by learning words that have to do with directions. Many of the words are familiar, such as near, or far, but some they need to learn what they mean like north, or west. After they have mastered these words, they begin to become familiar with the world around them beginning with the state of Texas. They discover the landmarks, events and settlement patterns that led to people settling here. They then learn the same about the United States and other nations.
Geometry is a part of the mathematics curriculum at Robstown Independent School District. This course concentrates on the math that is involved with shapes. The students begin by learning the basic characteristics of simple shapes like triangles, squares and circles. As the students progress, the shapes become more complex, as does the math surrounding them. The students discover how to find the perimeter, and area of shapes and how to find the diameter and radius of circles. They also study angles and how to use this to solve other equations that require them to use spatial reasoning.

Robstown District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The curriculum at Robstown Independent School District provides a standards-based approach to teaching and learning. Each subject is framed by a curriculum guide that explains the goals within each major topic of the subject that students should master. These begin with fundamentals in elementary school and progress in complexity through middle and high school. Students have a number of hands-on, project-based opportunities to fully explore the subject matter as well. Students also collaborate with each other in classroom and community projects. Becoming effective communicators and collaborators who are respectful of diverse people and are technologically savvy is a primary goal

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: Understanding Test Terminology
Test results can be difficult to understand if there is confusion in the terminology. There may be a number of scores listed but it may be difficult to understand. A raw score tells the number of questions that had correct answers on the test and does not tell any true information. Standard scores take into consideration other students of the same age and grade. These are represented as a part of a normal curve. When test results talk about grade or age equivalent scores they look at the way a student answers the questions and then tell what level the student is at, according to this test. For these results a third grade student may be given a score of 6.3 in reading. This means that when the student reads, they are reading the material the way a sixth grade student would read it. The percentile rank compares this student with others that took the test while a stanine rates a student on a scale from 1 to 9, where 1,2,3 are below average and 7,8,9 are above.
