Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Niles District Curriculum
The science curriculum at Niles Community Schools includes the study of Earth Science. Within this course, students learn how to research and process information that they obtain in class and with 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 natural resources. This, as well as other science classes, allows the student to see the world in a different way.
Mathematics begin with learning about simple numeration and how to combine numbers to find solutions to problems. Beginning with learning how to label each item in a set with a number, the students start their trek with mathematics. 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.

Niles District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Niles Community Schools follow academic standards set by the Michigan Department of Education. The district is focusing on elementary literacy development and ensuring that students are strong readers of non-fiction as well as fiction. In the middle schools, students have more opportunities to pursue STEM learning which integrates engineering concepts into the math and science students learn. The high school curriculum provides a wider range of options including Dual/Concurrent Enrollment programs with local colleges and Advanced Placement for those who wish to get a head start on college.

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.

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: Volunteering in the Classroom
By volunteering in the classroom, parents demonstrate to children that education is important. There are a variety of ways to volunteer. First, many teachers have wish lists for their classrooms. Check the list and purchase one or more of the items for the teacher. Another way to volunteer is to help the teacher with their web page. This is the way that many educators communicate with the families, however, finding the time to work on the site can be difficult for many teachers. If this is something that interests a parent, they should present their idea to the teacher. Another way to give is to share with the class a skill. Perhaps a parent likes working with plants, so they may help with a classroom garden or perhaps they can use a parent's skill will posting classwork or assembling a bulletin board. Any
