The Houston School System

Did you know the Houston Independent School District has nearly 300 public schools as well as many private schools? It is the largest school district in Texas and the seventh largest in the nation. As with any other city, there are some schools that offer students a more rigorous learning environment, and competition to gain entry into these schools can be steep. With about 210,000 students in the public schools alone, the Houston educational system can be intimidating.

One of the ways to help students who are struggling with academic studies, or those who simply want to become even more accomplished, is to engage the services of a private tutor. Professional Houston tutors can work with students from pre-K studies to collegiate classes to professional skills. A private tutor can also help with test prep for exams such as the STAAR, ACT, SAT, or ISEE.

Here's a breakdown of SAT test scores in the city. How does your student measure up?

Houston Test Scores

The STAAR, or the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness, are the annual assessments given to students in grades 3-8. Depending on grade level, the subjects students are tested on can include reading, mathematics, writing, science, and social studies. There are also end-of-course (EOC) assessments for specific courses, including English 1 & 2, Algebra 1, U.S. history, and biology.

An experienced Houston tutor can help students not only master exam content, but may also provide new test-taking strategies to help the student gain greater academic confidence, reduce test anxiety, and go after his or her goal score.

Recent Houston Tutoring Session Notes

Tutoring review by Rex in Houston, TX
In this session, the student and I studied for his test the following day. The math section he's currently covering involves functions, and some basic concepts and operations involving them. There was also significant emphasis on graphs, and the idea of transformations of basic parent functions.

Tutoring review by Travis in Houston, TX
The student is definitely bright, and we finished up right at an hour. Today, we worked on some quiz review regarding distributing polynomials and different ways to think about quadratic equations.  The student needed some review of the FOIL method of distribution, and we had to slow down a bit so he could focus on the steps, but otherwise he picked it up very well and was able to do most of the homework himself.

Tutoring review by Christine in Houston, TX
The student and I reviewed world history for her exam but primarily focused on math. She showed a strong understanding of inequalities and solving for the variables. The absolute values were more tricky, especially when involving dividing by negative numbers and switching the inequality sign but after a handful of problems, she seemed to understand the concept. It seems as though she has a strong understanding of math but can get confused by abnormal equations or more complex ones. A majority of her errors come from easily remedied mistakes.

Tutoring review by Rachel in Houston, TX
We continued our review of the renal system (and almost finished!). We continued our review of extrinsic and intrinsic control of glomerular filtration rate and began on renal clearance, how NA/K ATPase pumps help draw sodium ions out of the lumen and into the capillaries/interstitium. We discussed where secretion of K and H take place as well as how ADH, aldosterone, renin, and angiotensin I and II work. The student definitely understands the material and we made really good progress today.
