Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Grosse Pointe Woods District Curriculum
Students at Grosse Pointe Woods Public Schools are exposed to the world of literature through the English curriculum. In the early years of their education, students learn to decide what comes first, next and last. This can lead to discovering how to create plot diagrams, find themes, location and characters in a story. They also can study a story to look at the world and to combine different subjects. They also learn how to break down any reading and put together an analytic understanding to find answers.
Students learn about numbers and equations through the Grosse Pointe Woods Public School's mathematics curriculum. At first this study involves learning to assign numbers to items in a set. They then discover how to manipulate the items to discover equations such as addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. This paves the way for understanding different number systems and mathematical relationships. This introduction to using tools to help in math is used throughout their education and can help students become first-class problem-solvers.

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: Teaching Children How to Self-Monitor Their Reading
To help build children's confidence in reading, parents need to help children develop a type of automatic inner dialogue while reading. This can be demonstrated by asking some of these questions when the children are reading, either alone or together. Parents can ask about their thoughts on the story and why things happened in the plot. Also, asking about what parts the child liked best can give a sense of reading taste. Soon, the children will begin to ask themselves the questions automatically. They should ask themselves why they are reading a selection and what they expect to learn. Also how the material is is organized and what they already know about it. Finally, they need to determine if they need to vary their speed by their understanding of any new material.
