Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Byron Township District Curriculum
The elementary Mathematics curriculum uses Everyday Math as its main resource for teachers and students. The program is based on the spiraling theory in which students are exposed to different Mathematical concepts repeatedly until mastery is reached. A large part of the spiraling curriculum comes in the form of the student journal which is used daily in class. This journal contains Math Boxes which are a series of problems from key concepts.
The Language Arts curriculum has several components in place to help students who are having difficulties reading. One of the biggest components is the READ180 program, which uses technology to help students. READ180 is a program that measures Lexile Reading scores and works to improve those scores for low performing students. Students will go to the READ180 room where they will work with a teacher and other students on specific skills. Next, they will listen to pieces of literature on the computer and answer comprehension questions.

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: Remediation Options for Schools
It has long been known that not all students will learn at the same speed or master every objective equally. However, what are the options for those students that have fallen behind? Many school districts have several choices to remediate students. For students who are having trouble with a particular skill, it may help to offer individual tutoring with the teacher or resource personnel. Students who have fallen behind substantially in a subject will need more intense remediation. One option for these students is for them to be enrolled in one of the many remediation programs that school districts can purchase. One good example is the READ180 program which helps students raise their reading level until they are back on track. It is important for schools to evaluate each student and determine the best course of remediation in order for that student to be successful.
