Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Socorro District Curriculum
Students learn about writing throughout elementary so when they enter middle and high school they learn how to apply these skills for many applications. Students learn how to fill out applications, including the use of correct grammar and complete sentences. They also learn how to write a paragraph so they are able to fill out college or job applications with ease. In addition, student can take their writing skills and use them in journalism classes. By learning how to apply their writing skills throughout life students develop the skills necessary to address different audiences persuasively.
The science curriculum at Socorro Schools includes the study of the solar system. Throughout their time at this schools students learn about the characteristics of the planets of this solar system. They then continue with this education by learning about the other items that are found in the sky. When they get into high school they watch video shot by probes that have traveled through space, plus they study star cycles and requirements for traveling in space.

Socorro District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The curriculum of Socorro Independent School District consists of a combination of the knowledge of its staff and the standards set forth in the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills. The objectives describe the types of knowledge and skills students should develop, but provide leeway for teachers to determine the best way to teach the material. The schools not only have a wide range of support services and enrichment programs, but they also work on developing programs that speak to students current interests and future goals.
We currently cover the following Socorro-area school district: Socorro 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: Communication with High School Children
A common problem that faces parents is a wall that makes communication with their child very difficult. With a few suggestions, the wall may come down a little at a time. High school children need to receive positive affirmation. This means that when a parent says no, it can change the way a child feels about himself and his world. Try to find ways to change situations around so that the teenager won’t feel a negative connotation. Criticism can have the same effect as saying no. Once again, try to turn the phrases that are used into options or positive phrases. Family meeting can also help with two-way communication. Guidelines and agenda items need to be agreed upon up front and meetings should always end in a positive manner. With these couple of suggestions parents and teens may find that communication with each other a joy.
