Educating Our Parents: Understanding the San Juan District Curriculum
The Science curriculum at San Juan Schools begins by allowing the students to explore their world around them. They look at the seasons, the weather, and even the rocks to build a foundation that they will use through the rest of their education. They then begin to look at each one a little closer. They begin to see the clouds and see how they vary from type to type. Students also learn about the rocks and are able to pick out various characteristics that depict geological concepts.
Social Studies looks at the community to see who creates the laws that make their town run smoothly. Once that the students understand this, they can then see how this concept is used for their entire state, then their country. They learn about the process that bills must go through before becoming laws and the people required to make this possible. They then learn that other countries have different forms of governments but they also find out that it still requires people, such as themselves, to make their voices heard to influence change within their society.

San Juan District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The San Juan schools base their curriculum on the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills while using the skills that their educators have gained through teaching. The teachers use the TEKS as the guide to classroom objectives which need to be covered but are able to deliver these objectives in ways most suitable for the learning styles of the students in their classroom. The curriculum is therefore both student centered and standards-based, and as students move towards graduation they are increasingly presented with options of interest and relevance to their future.
We currently cover the following San Juan-area school district: Pharr-San Juan-Alamo Independent School District.

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: Preparing Children for Middle School
For many children, middle school is a complete change. The teachers, classrooms, and schedules are all different things than the child may be used to. To help them with this transition, parents need to step in. First of all, arrange a visit to the school. During this visit, the child can become accustom to the building’s layout. They can see where they would need to go to for gym class, locker rooms, lunch room and their classes. They can also visit with their teachers, if they are available. This is also an opportunity to ask any questions that the child or the parents may have. In addition, parents need to talk with the child about the changes. This is a chance to help put their mind at ease. Finally, take the child shopping for what they may need for the first day. This way, they will have everything that they need to feel more comfortable about the changes that they will be facing.
