Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Highland Charter Township District Curriculum
The Huron Valley School District include the subjects of biology and chemistry in the science curriculum. Students begin by studying living systems and elements from the larger aspects, in elementary, to the smallest parts of each. Included in biology is the study of DNA, Darwin's Theory, evolution of populations and bacteria. In chemistry students study counting calories, calculating energy and solubility. Each of these subjects show students to look beyond the surface of things to find things of interest underneath.
One part of the curriculum at Huron Valley School District is history. Educators use a variety of resources, in creative ways, to make history come to life for the students. By combining the use of literature, newspapers, films and primary sources, the students become aware of the people and events that make up this subject. They also take the information from these sources to then research a person well enough to debate an issue from that historical person's viewpoint. When they enter their career, these students will be aware of the difference each person can make.

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: Test Terminology
Test results can be difficult to understand if there is confusion in the terminology. There may be a number of scores listed but it may be difficult to understand. A raw score tells the number of questions that had correct answers on the test and does not tell any true information. Standard scores take into consideration other students of the same age and grade. These are represented as a part of a normal curve. When test results talk about grade or age equivalent scores they look at the way a student answers the questions and then tell what level the student is at, according to this test. For these results a third grade student may be given a score of 6.3 in reading. This means that when the student reads, they are reading the material the way a sixth grade student would read it. The percentile rank compares this student with others that took the test while a stanine rates a student on a scale from 1 to 9, where 1,2,3 are below average and 7,8,9 are above. With the understanding of this terminology parents are better able to see how their child is doing and if there is need for concern.
