Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Flint District Curriculum
The English and Language Arts program begins with foundational concepts such as phonics and print awareness. Students learn basics of reading and writing and ways to understand and develop meaning through each. Early on, students are also exposed to a variety of genres, including poetry and nonfiction. As they transition to high school, the focus moves to unlocking deeper meanings in literature, informational texts, and media.
The Mathematics curriculum breaks up math into different components like Geometry and Measurement and Data. Students study different aspects of each component as they advance in their academic careers. Learning about algebra begins early, as well, when students are introduced to concepts of patterning and mathematic relationships. In high school, the focus in on algebra, geometry, and calculus taking into account both their practical and conceptual uses.

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: Planetariums
Planetariums are a great educational resource for learning about science and astronomy outside of school. Traditional technology makes use of a ‘star ball’, a globe lit from the inside and pricked with holes, to project images of stars onto the planetarium’s dome. Each hole is precisely positioned to accurately represent the night sky. However, planetariums are increasingly switching to digital technology which allows greater flexibility when designing programs. Many communities operate planetariums and often they are associated with a city museum.
