Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Berkley District Curriculum
Geometry is one part of the mathematics curriculum covered at Berkley School District. This mathematics subject includes the study of shapes and angles. It also includes all of the formulas that surround these items. Students learn what makes shapes specific and what kind of angles make up these shapes. They also find the perimeter and area of items, plus how to find the diameter and radius of circles.
At Berkley School District, students explore history. The teachers help to bring history to life by exposing the students to a variety of materials, including primary sources, such as interviews. By using these different resources the students become aware of the events and people that have led to the historic events. They also discover how to research a specific topic and place it in a form that can help others learn from the presentation. When the students have graduated, they will have discovered how one person or one event can affect all of history, including theirs.

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: Talking So A Teen-Ager Will Listen
When talking with a teen-ager, parents cannot always be sure that they are being heard. When the teen ignores a parent it is one way that they can have power in their lives. So when talking parents will benefit by remembering what the goal is for the conversation, then state it in a way that the teen understands. It also helps if a parent does not take the ignoring or yelling personally. Remember this is their way of obtaining power in this area. Do not become irate. Instead, keep calm and ate the facts again. If the temptation is there to yell, leave the room. Finally, when discussing rules, do not get involved talking about fairness. The teen can then try to turn the rules to their advantage. Just stick with the rules and let them know it is their job to follow them.
