Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Waco District Curriculum
The social studies curriculum reaches out to students by introducing them to community leaders that they are most familiar with. This includes the teacher, principal and parents. Soon, students learn about the leaders of their community and state, as well as the path that was taken to place these leaders in their roles. They also learn about the laws of the area and the state, in addition they learn about the leaders that make up the United States.
The mathematics curriculum includes a strand on geometry. Students learn how to recognize a variety of shapes, like squares, circles and triangles, by looking for these shapes throughout their world, the desk may be square, the clock a circle. Then they learn how to use these shapes to create artwork of their own. This knowledge is built upon by learning additional shapes throughout their education. Students also learn how to measure shapes, both the exterior and interior measurements and how to create shapes with certain measurements.

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: Seventh-Grade Social Studies
By seventh grade, students have one year of middle school under their belt, but this does not mean that these students will have smooth sailing. In seventh grade, in Texas, social studies focuses on the history of Texas beginning with the first Native Americans through the leaders found in today's history. Students learn about major milestones and people who have brought about the changes seen in this state's past. Parents can help students by keeping communication open and helping the student stay on top of their homework and independent projects.
