Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Hamtramck District Curriculum
Students start each unit with a read aloud book that illustrates the strategy being taught. The teacher uses a script to read the book that contains stopping points for discussion and reflection. A major part of the program involves students partnering up to discuss questions or make predictions for the rest of the story. There is also a workbook for students to use in which they write responses to different parts of a story as well as summaries of what they have read.
The middle school Language Arts curriculum takes what students learned in elementary school and applies it to more complex literature selections. Students will read whole novels that often are chosen because they illustrate a common literary theme. Some of the themes students will learn about include man vs. nature, man vs. himself, and man vs. man. While reading the novels, students will have discussions in class and usually have questions to answer after each chapter.

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: English as a Second Language
English as a Second Language, or ESL, is a program found in most schools across the country. The goal of an ESL program is to help students from other countries become proficient enough in the English language to succeed in school. The students who receive ESL services are from varied backgrounds and come to American schools with differing levels of the English language. Some may be able to speak English quite well, while others may not know a single word of our language. The services for ESL students will vary as well based on their abilities. Students can be in a self-contained ESL classroom where they receive intensive instruction with other students who have no experience with the language. Other students may be in the general education classroom most of the day and only receive moderate instruction for a half hour each day. As our country continues to become diverse, ESL services will become an important part of school systems.
