Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Garfield Charter Township District Curriculum
The English curriculum at Traverse City Area Public Schools helps students learn how to create written and oral presentations based on texts they have been studying. To begin, students learn to define what topics to share with the audience, generally topics that have a special meaning to them. They then discover the different sources they can use to find information to support their view. After summarizing the material they place it in the form that is needed and one that will appeal to the audience.
One part of the curriculum at Traverse City Area Public Schools is history. Many different resources are used to help make history personal for each student. The students use literature, newspapers, films, technology and special speakers to help students become aware of the connection of one person or one event in the history of the world. They also learn how to locate and evaluate information. Students also learn to take the information they have gathered and present the information in a personal style.

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: Volunteering in the Classroom
By volunteering in the classroom, parents demonstrate to children that education is important. There are a variety of ways to volunteer. First, many teachers have wish lists for their classrooms. Check the list and purchase one or more of the items for the teacher. Another way to volunteer is to help the teacher with their web page. This is the way that many educators communicate with the families, however, finding the time to work on the site can be difficult for many teachers. If this is something that interests a parent, they should present their idea to the teacher. Another way to give is to share with the class a skill. Perhaps a parent likes working with plants, so they may help with a classroom garden or perhaps they can use a parent's skill will posting classwork or assembling a bulletin board. Any of these areas, and more, are ways that a parent can help the teacher with a skill, or time, while showing a child that the parent see education as important.
