Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Waxahachie District Curriculum
Students learn about geography at Waxahachie Schools by exploring the world in their immediate surroundings and then including broader areas. By the time they are through middle school, children will have found out the basics of geography around the world. When they are in high school they go more in-depth by learning about Human Geography as well as the resources that are found throughout the world and how they influence trade, migration, the growth of communities, and cultural interactions.
The Reading curriculum helps students learn the basics of reading so that they can use these skills in other subjects to help them succeed. Students become familiar, with Readers’ Workshop, with reading in groups. This continues in high school as students use literature circles to combine reading with other subjects. The students learn about immigration through books like “The Joy Luck Club” or they learn about darkness through studying the works of Edgar Allan Poe.

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: Learning Styles
Teachers talk about how different students have different styles of learning. With the knowledge of what the different styles are, parents can help their children succeed in school. There are perceptual learners that learn by visual stimulation, auditory learners learn through listening, or kinesthetic students who learn through movement. In addition there are four perceptual learning styles. Those student that learn though the written word, those that learn through verbalization, haptic learners who learn through touch or grasp or those that use the sense of smell and taste or olfactory learner. Any child can be a mixture of a few of these; however, there may be one that is stronger than the other. If there are questions about which type of learner a child is, talk with a teacher or counselor for more information about how determine learning styles.
