Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lincoln Charter Township District Curriculum
The Math curriculum focuses on the areas of numeracy and operational sense, algebra, geometry, and data analysis. Students learn to perform basic operations, recognize patterns, recognize shape and learn how to measure, and learn about proportions and ratios during their elementary years, preparing them for more complex work in middle and high school. To the greatest extent possible, these topics are related to their real world applications and increasingly integrated into science, technology and engineering courses.
The English curriculum includes skills in reading, writing, listening and sharing orally. At times these sections work together so the students and teachers can see how they have progressed. While studying classic works, the students may be asked to read a book alone or in a small group, then create a poster or a presentation on one specific section of the book. This presentation can be made in the form of a speech or even a debate where others will need to listen to important points. There will be times when these skills will be needed to give formal presentations.

The standards are written broadly, allowing teachers to use their judgement as to how best to instruct their students in the goals.

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 terminology can be difficult to understand. There may be a number of scores listed but it may be difficult to understand the differences. 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.
