Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Eastpointe District Curriculum
The Common Core Language Arts curriculum is the main focus throughout both school districts. While students traditionally read a multitude of fiction in school, this new curriculum concentrates more on non-fiction texts. This allows content subjects such as Science and History to be integrated into the Language Arts lessons for a richer educational lesson. Reading stamina and fluency are another focus of this curriculum. Students must be able to read for long periods of time and do so fluently.
The Common Core Mathematics curriculum is a system that builds upon the previous year’s work. This benefits students and teachers by assuring that the students have the background knowledge necessary for the skills being introduces. Another focus of the curriculum is the ability to perform basic functions, such as adding and subtracting, with great speed. Students in the younger grades spend a lot of time practicing these operations until they are fluent enough to perform them quickly from memory.

Eastpointe District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Education in Eastpointe is administered by two school districts including East Detroit Public Schools and South Lake Schools. East Detroit Public Schools contain four elementary schools, one middle school, one alternative high school, and one traditional high school. South Lake Schools are comprised of three elementary schools, one middle school, and one high school. Learning standards for the districts are based off of the national Common Core curriculum as well as the Michigan Department of Education’s Grade Level Expectations. Smaller class sizes and a personalized approach offer students a save environment for learning.

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.

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 Importance of Afterschool Clubs
We’ve all heard that joining afterschool clubs look great on college applications, but there are some other important benefits to these extracurricular activities. Students spend about 7.5 hours a day in school attending classes and completing work. These hours are generally used to cover required material and do not take into account each student’s personal interests. This is where the afterschool clubs come into play by letting students explore any and all of their interests. Some clubs focus on career topics, while others are simply to have fun. These clubs can also be an important social activity for students who may not have many friends in the classroom, but can bond with other students over mutual interests. Another benefit of afterschool activities is that it keeps students busy. Students who do not participate in any extracurricular activities are more likely to get in trouble. No matter what reason a student has for joining an afterschool club, they will benefit in many ways from these educational and social groups.
