Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Oceola Township District Curriculum
Students are introduced to the world of literature through the English curriculum. From elementary through high school, students learn how to create plot diagrams, to find the themes, location and characters in stories. They also learn how to find information in their reading concerning writing and other objects. Through this subject students learn about rhetoric, argument and Socratic thinking. Through studying other authors, the students become better writers.
Both districts include the Social Studies curriculum into each student's life from their first year at school. Part of this curriculum includes the study of Geography. Students begin by becoming familiar with their own surroundings, including their community and state. After this they discover information about other states throughout the country, plus countries that border the U.S. Soon, they find out about other countries around the world, including their topography and the influence that it had in settlements and trade.

Oceola Township District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Both Hartland Consolidated Schools and Howell Public Schools use a curriculum based on the educational standards set by the Michigan Department of Education. The Michigan Merit Curriculum outlines the skills, concepts, and critical thinking goals and anticipated outcomes. Grade-specific expectations and outcomes focus on what students learn and not what is taught; they also have observable, measurable, and attainable standards and identify the key understandings; guide course, unit, and lesson planning. This helps to ensure all students are receiving college and career ready standards.

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: What to Do When Wait-Listed for College
After the debate over the right colleges, and the application process, the letters soon arrive with the news of acceptance, denial or wait-listed. The first two options are pretty clear, however, if a student is wait-listed there are some steps they can take to change this to an acceptance. First, the student should write a letter to the admissions office sharing the enthusiasm they feel about attending the school. Within this letter the teen should share how they see themselves fitting in an the courses they are interested in. Next, make sure that all the information the college has is up-to-date. Share any awards or any new test scores. Finally, remind the teen that each school has a different timeline as to when they draw from a wait list, some as late as July. Even if the student is not accepted help them to remember that there are other options to choose from if they do not gain admission to this school.
