Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Detroit District Curriculum
Two goals of Detroit's English and Language Arts curriculum are to improve overall and literacy and increase the number of students taking Advanced Placement tests in English. Kindergarten through sixth grade uses the Open Court reading series which focuses on the alphabetic principle and explicitly teaches phonics to beginning readers. Older students use research-based reading programs that build comprehension and vocabulary skills by providing a rich literature experience.
With a strong focus on problem solving and the quantitative nature of our modern world, mathematics instruction seeks to prepare students for the real world. Based on Common Core Standards, students get exposed early on to algebraic thinking while high school students have the opportunity to take advanced calculus and statistics classes. Additionally, extracurriculars like the Academic Games and the Chess League let students put the knowledge they have gained to the test.

Testimonials and Case Studies from Our Parents
SchoolTutoring Academy 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 very self-conscious about her difficulties with the math section of the SAT. SchoolTutoring Academy’s Academic Directors created an action plan that boosted my daughter’s score and confidence level.
SchoolTutoring Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades. Test Prep Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades.
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: Technology in the Classroom
Touch-screen technology is making its way into today's classrooms more than ever and one of the best examples is the interactive whiteboard. These devices are mounted onto walls like regular whiteboards and they have an impressive list of capabilities. They can display computer desktop screens- making web surfing and Internet research a whole class activity. They can also be manipulated with electronic pens and, for the teacher, the opportunities for lessons, games, and activities are limitless. In Detroit Public Schools, many schools have SmartBoards, one of the most recognized brands of interactive whiteboard used in today's classrooms.
