Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Novi District Curriculum
Core curriculum standards are diverse; for example, in the third grade Science curriculum students are expected to understand the structures of living things, changes in light and motion, earth materials and a bevy of other scientific basics. By the time they reach fifth grade, the students are expected to be able to understand scientific measurements and apply them to motions, they should be able to understand basic evolution of animals and organisms and other scientific ideas.
Math students in fifth grade will have to be able to demonstrate their knowledge of multiplication of fractions, with unlike denominators and divide, add and subtract the same, and a slew of other mathematical knowledge. In English, reading, writing and structure is also all taught so that students understand the craft of literature and how to put together a well-written essay of their own analytic thoughts. Outlining is a skill that is taught and students are expected to use during their education.

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: Tutors and Teachers
Teachers are some of the most influential people in a child's life. They affect much of the learning that a child demonstrates. The ratio's in public schools averages about 1 teacher per 25 students. It can be very difficult for a child that is struggling with a subject to get the individual attention that they need to overcome the struggle with those ratios. A tutor can work hand and hand with the teacher to help the child gain a better understanding of the subject matter. It truly does take a village to raise a child both inside and outside the school system.
