Educating Our Parents: Understanding the San Marcos District Curriculum
The Science curriculum at San Marcos Schools includes the study of the water cycle. In the first years of school, students learn the basics of this cycle. They learn that water evaporates, gathers in clouds and then it falls to the earth. This is gone into more detail as the student progresses through school. When they enter high school, these students can learn even more as they take classes in Earth Science or if they take classes in Ecology.
Students begin to learn the elements reading, in San Marcos Schools, by combining it with other subjects. When they are learning about famous Americans in Social Studies, they tie it in with non-fiction and biographical reading. By second grade, the students will have become fluent enough to read three chapter books within six weeks. Each book is connected by a theme. In middle school, they take the characters in a baseball book and create baseball cards for the main characters. These students are learning to connect reading with their everyday interests,

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: Kindergarten Expectations
For many children, kindergarten is their first time with a structured learning experience. This can be scary for many, but it helps if the children and the parents know what expectations are desired. Each teacher may expect different things but in general they have similar ideas. First they want to know that the child will respect and follow the lead of the teacher and other authority figures. They also want a child to treat people and materials with respect and to understand and follow rules. The child should also understand that they should not hurt someone, either physically or emotionally. These are a few things to work on. It is also a good idea to talk with the teacher to see what expectations there are that are special to that teacher. This also opens the important door to parent-teacher communication.
