Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Grand Rapids Charter Township District Curriculum
The Language Arts curriculum includes the study of reading and writing and teaches students how to communicate their ideas in group discussions and formal presentations. Students learn many different reading and writing styles and they learn how to analyze these styles. They are taught about literary techniques and the craft of literature. This study helps the students gain confidence as they need to examine and select the best choices for reading and writing. They learn how to connect these experiences with choices in their future.

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: Transitions in High School
Each age challenges children, by being aware ahead of time parents can help the child through these times. In high school, many teens need to face moving to a larger school, new teachers, expectations and discipline. They also are learning how to develop independence at home, yet still stay connected. Socially, new connections are being made and at time they need to find a balance between work and social life. Finally, these young people are expected to have good study skills and the expectations are they can shoulder the responsibility of deciding classes to take and what type of future they want. Parents can help by talking with their child about the changes that are going to be faced. Also contact should be maintained between the parents and the teachers.
