Educating Our Parents: Understanding the South Lyon District Curriculum
South Lyon Community Schools allow students to become proficient in the English curriculum by allowing practice and examples for them to learn. At first, writing takes place in the form of drawing pictures. They then add simple words, then words to add details and description. These words help the reader to see the image that the student began with. In high school, they learn how to create essays and research papers which are aimed at the audience but maintain the author’s voice.
The history of the United States is included in South Lyons Community Schools curriculum. This study includes the political diplomatic, cultural and economic history and more. The time period stretches from the first explorations of the continent through current events. The students learn through typical discussions and through primary and secondary resources and technological resources. Through United States history the students learn how one event or the actions of one can affect the country.

South Lyon District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
South Lyons Community Schools curriculum is based on the educational standards set by the Michigan Department of Education. The focus of the curriculum is on critical thinking skills, analytical writing and effective communication skills, science literacy and problem solving skills, and mathematics. Students read complex texts in a variety of classes for comprehension and author intent. They write thoughtfully about their reading, using evidence they’ve gathered from the text to support their claims. In mathematics classes, students focus on a greater depth of learning, so that they understand how mathematical concepts work.
We currently cover the following South Lyon-area school district: South Lyons Community Schools.

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.
