Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Defiance District Curriculum
The English language arts curriculum helps students acquire the skills they need to be effective communicators. After developing basic language skills in elementary school, middle school students explore advanced studies in the language arts. Students learn how to identify key ideas and details of a text, including central themes and character development. Learners work on the craft and structure of their writings as well, with an analysis of how word choice and sentence structure can positively or negatively impact the meaning of a passage.
Students in Defiance take part in a social studies curriculum that includes an examination of modern world history. Beginning with a study of the Enlightenment and the Age of Reason, students examine how European populations challenged religious views of the world using new scientific ideas. From there, students analyze how the industrial revolution promoted sweeping changes in governments in the western world, including the spread of democracy as the middle class rose to prominence.

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: Importance of Music Education
Although music class is viewed as an elective course, it’s benefits for students make the case that music should be an integrated component of all K-12 programs. Studying music helps children improve reasoning and language skills. In fact, studies show that music education helps language centers in the brain develop at a more rapid pace. Music improves spatial intelligence as well, with children demonstrating an improved ability to form mental pictures. Problem solving skills are also enhanced through the study of music. Students that study music tend to perform better on standardized tests, including the SAT and ACT. Music also gives students a glimpse into other cultures and societies, thus promoting respect for others and an appreciation of multiculturalism.
