Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Troy District Curriculum
In math classes, teachers focus on depth rather than breadth, with fewer topics covered, but those topics explored deeply. Students are taught how to use the math, but also how and why the math works, so that they understand mathematical principles and can then build on that understanding in the future with more advanced math. They can also confidently take this expertise with them to college and beyond to succeed. Rote memorization of formulas is stressed less than this understanding, though, of course, students do still have to memorize formulas.
To meet all the learning standards, the district has devised learning opportunities that are challenging, relevant, and achievement focused. Grade level expectations for math knowledge and skills are articulated both vertically and horizontally, so students build on what they learn from year to year. Cross-curricular studies provide real-world connections between math and other subjects, such as science, technology, and the arts.

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: Tips for Applying to College
Early Action (EA) is an early, non-binding college application type. Not every college offers it. The deadline for EA applications is usually November 15th, though it can vary whereas a Regular Decision application might be due as late as mid-January, or even later. The benefit of EA applications is that, since they’re early, fewer other students have applied so competition is less fierce. Also, colleges favor early applications since they demonstrate dedication and commitment on the part of the student. Acceptance rates are higher for EA applications. Some colleges will waive application fees for early applications, and most will respond fairly quickly, providing decisions within a couple months. The benefits of EA applications outweigh the one real drawback, which is that they are early. In fact, being early just means the student is finished sooner, so this is really an advantage, also.
