Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Holland Township District Curriculum
Students are exposed to the core subjects at an early age in order to foster a love of learning and an inquisitive mind. Alternative options to traditional classroom learning are available to students in the Holland Township school districts. ZQuest is a multi-age project based program for students in grades K-8 that offers a year round calendar. This program allows students to base their studies on their own interests through collaboration with both teachers and parents. Virtual classes are also an option for students that cannot attend school on a regular basis.
Older students are able to take a multitude of career and technical classes in order to explore future career options. Some of the courses available include mechanics, health sciences, and culinary arts. High school sports and extracurricular activities such as community service groups are also options for students who would like to expand their interests beyond academics.

Holland Township District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Holland Township is served by three school districts that include Holland Public Schools, West Ottawa Public Schools, and Zeeland Public Schools. The school districts follow the Michigan Department of Education’s framework and have recently aligned their objectives to match that of the national Common Core standards. Higher order thinking and 21st Century skills drive the strategies used to teach students these objectives. Preschool education is the cornerstone that Holland Township school districts use to build a successful academic career. Early Education Centers offer students a strong beginning with literacy based activities rooted in play.

Testimonials and Case Studies from Our Parents
SchoolTutoring Academy 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 very self-conscious about her difficulties with the math section of the SAT. SchoolTutoring Academy’s Academic Directors created an action plan that boosted my daughter’s score and confidence level.
SchoolTutoring Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades. Test Prep Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades.
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: The Importance of Functional Reading
Functional reading is the reading of everyday items that help us navigate our world. Some examples of functional reading include street signs, prices, restaurant logos, and menus. This type of reading is especially important because without the ability to read functionally, one may be hindered in many aspects of his or her life. There are steps you can take to help your student become a better functional reader and the number one tip is to start early! Take your student to the grocery store and restaurants as often as possible and read everything you can to them. This early exposure is invaluable. Another great idea is to take a drive or walk around town and read all the signs you come across. Be sure to explain what the signs and symbols mean as well. A few extra minutes a day spent on functional reading can make a huge difference in a student’s success.
