Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lyon Charter Township District Curriculum
The science curriculum at South Lyon Community Schools includes the study of Earth Science. Within this course students learn how to research and process information that they obtain from class and outside reading. They also learn to see the connections between humans and Earth including the composition of the earth, oceanography, meteorology, space, the living earth and its resources. Students also develop their observation skills and learn how to take detailed, scientific notes about their observations.
Mathematics begins with learning about simple numeration and how to combine numbers to find solutions to problems. Each grade level increases the difficulty of the math that the student faces, while building on what they already know. When they are in high school they can take classes such as calculus which prepare them for college level math. In this class students learn about trigonometric and inverse trigonometric functions; basic identities and the laws of tines and cosines and more. All of which helps the students become better problem-solvers.

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: Safety for the New College Student
Parents and students want to feel safe at their new college. No matter how hard a college tries, there will always be some chance of crime. However, all colleges are concerned and do work to provide students with a safe environment. At orientation, students should pay attention to the security information and the phone numbers which are given to them. They will also be told how to be safe at gatherings, when on the campus and in their rooms. There are certain things which parents need to make sure that their young adult knows before they head off to college. As far as their personal property, students should always make sure that their things are locked up or they may be taken. Finally, it is always a good idea for the student to place campus security’s phone number in their phone. Despite all of these concerns, students need to be aware that their new world is a reasonably safe environment where they can make mistakes, learn and move forward.
