Educating Our Parents: Understanding the South Houston District Curriculum
Students at Pasadena Independent School District learn the many different aspects of using numbers through the mathematics curriculum. From the first day of school, students are exposed to numbers in the calendar and as they learn to assign a number to items in a set. This foundation is built upon through each grade of school. Students learn about shapes, angles, capacity and perimeters in geometry. In algebra they solve for missing factors, and then they learn how to use this as the basis for many other practical applications.
Geography, a part of the social studies curriculum, helps students to learn how things in the world are held together. This could be the study of how things, or a culture are held together in one place, how the physical world works in sync, or how the human portion of the earth is connected. This is done by starting on the local level and then gradually expanding the study to include the county, state, country and then the entire world.

SchoolTutoring Academy Increased My SAT Score By 200 Points

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: How Parents Can Become Involved in Education
To help ensure that a child is receiving the best education, parents need to be a part of it. There are several ways to make this happen. First of all, make sure to read with the child each day. When a parent and child read together each day, it helps instill a sense of comfort and security in this time, as they learn while feeling loved and connected. Next, when having a conversation make sure to work in the topics learned in school, including questions to ask and answer, along with where this knowledge can be applied. Another way to assist in education is to keep the lines of communication open with the teachers, even if there is not a problem to be addressed. This connection shows the child that the parent cares about their education. Finally, look for resources to help this quest. The library has material that is aimed at parental assistance in a child’s education, or there are also materials for one specific area that may be a concern. Combining all of these ideas can help parents become a more interested and more involved advocate for their child and education.
