Educating Our Parents: Understanding the West Odessa District Curriculum
The science curriculum shows students how science can be found throughout the world, and beyond the world’s bounds. Students learn to look up at the sky when they begin to study clouds and their part in the weather they experience and in the water cycle. They then look beyond the clouds to study the planets, stars, comets and even more of space. They learn how to combine the history of explorers and the stars, plus how modern space exploration helps the world today.
Students at West Odessa Schools learn to read from the first years at school. By the time they enter middle school, they move beyond these basics to find out about different genres, an author’s point of view and voice, setting and more. In high school they then analyze different works of literature to compare what they say about a topic or a point in history. They also learn how to write in various creative and analytic styles and are able to use their reading as models of the craft of writing.

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: Overview of the Elementary Reading Curriculum
Through first grade, students learn some of the basics of sounding out words and learning how to read. In second grade this is built upon as students go from sounding out, or decoding, to finding out the mechanics behind reading. While they do this they also focus on comprehension skills. By the time they finish second grade, they will become much more fluent in reading and their sight vocabulary will grow. They also will be able to retell stories with more accuracy and enjoy reading independently. States may vary in their standards, but overall these are the skills that students become more comfortable with by the time they finish second grade. Once in third grade, students will have a wider variety of choices for independent reading and will begin to be able to recognize areas of interest in reading. They will also learn about informational texts and how it’s different from fiction. By fourth grade, reading assessments will become an important factor in the students educational progress and provide information regarding their progress.
