Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Commerce Township District Curriculum
Education starts early in both school districts with community preschools housed in the public schools and taught by licensed teachers. Students gain an advantage with this important start to their school career. An introduction to Reading, Writing, and Math are taught through play, read- alouds, arts, and music. Mathematics standards focus on concentrating on a few larger concepts instead of touching briefly on every concept in the math world. Students will spend adequate time on grade level standards until mastery is reached. Some of these standards include number theory, operations, geometry, and measurement.
The Language Arts curriculum is guided by the Common Core Standards which ask students to delve deeper into more complex texts. Analyzing different types of literature and being able to link that analysis with evidence from the text is a crucial part of these new standards. Non-fiction texts are also being given a larger role in the Language Arts program.

Commerce Township District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Commerce Township is served by two school districts which include Walled Lake Consolidated School District and Huron Valley School District. Walled Lake schools follow the Common Core curriculum and have joined the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium. Their goal is to be a top school system in the United States by offering students a well-rounded academic and social education. Huron Valley School District has begun an initiative called GRAD100, in which they hope to have 100% of students graduate and be ready to join the workforce. Both school districts put an emphasis on high expectations to motivate students to reach their full potential.

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 Importance of Early Reading Interventions
Reading is the key that unlocks the world for students, but what do you do when a student has trouble reading? Early intervention is vital to the academic and future success of a child. It has been shown time and time again that students who go into the 3rd grade behind in reading will spend the rest of their academic career trying to catch up. Since reading is a prerequisite for all other subjects, this can lead to a student being behind across the board. However, students who receive interventions early on tend to stay on or exceed grade level expectations. These interventions can range from more individual reading time at home to a rigorous tutoring program. It is a team effort between teachers and families to recognize a student who is falling behind in reading early enough for these interventions to really have an impact.
