Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Ann Arbor District Curriculum
The district's English and Language Arts curriculum gives students a rich literature and language experience. There is a strong focus on vocabulary and word study at all grade levels and upper elementary students take a reader's workshop approach which includes small group instruction and discussion. The curriculum also ensures students are reading authentic texts from a variety of genres at the middle school and high school level. Special emphasis is also given to writing and students ability to create written works for a variety of purposes.
The district uses a well-respected program called Everyday Mathematics to teach numeracy skills and problem solving in the elementary grades. At the middle school level, students learn through lessons but also participate in guided investigations that teach mathematics through discovery. High school students are required to take four years of mathematics and are given a range of options, such as algebra, geometry, and pre-calculus, from which to choose.

Ann Arbor District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Ann Arbor Public Schools make use of the resources available to them- including the University of Michigan. The two organizations have teamed up to create the World Languages Program which delivers Spanish language instruction to all elementary students and provides even more language options at the secondary level. Ann Arbor Public Schools are also working hard to close the achievement gap so all students graduate ready for college or the workplace. With many joining National Honor Society each year and a high percentage continuing on to college, AAPS helps students achieve the high expectations the district sets out for them.
We currently cover the following Ann Arbor-area school district: Ann Arbor Public Schools.
Keeping Informed: Recent Ann Arbor Educational News
- Music Education Programs Honored - Ann Arbor's Huron High School was recognized in 2012 as a semifinalist by the Grammy Foundation for excellence in the area of music and performing arts. Students have a wide range of band, orchestra and choral opportunities and are encouraged to explore music through technology.
- Greening of the Schools - Over a dozen Ann Arbor schools received recognition from the U.S. Green Building Council for their efforts in increasing recycling and reducing waste in their buildings. These improvements certainly mean that the district is harnessing their energy budget, but also provides for countless learning experiences for the students.
- Digital Dialogue - Students at one of the area elementary schools had an opportunity to develop their writing skills through a program called "Digital Dialogue." Students are linked to students in another country over the internet to have conversations, form new bonds, and learn about different parts of the world. The upside is that all this is done while the students are writing in an authentic context.
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: The Benefits of Small Group Instruction
Teachers use flexible small group instruction to work with different reading levels within a classroom. However, this doesn't mean students receive different sets of expectations. Instead, all students receive instruction on the same reading skills, things like finding the main idea or identifying main characters, but since texts are selected to match reading levels, everyone will be able to read and practice those skills. These groups can also be used so that students work together at similar levels or are grouped for proximal, peer-to-peer learning.
