Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Southfield Township District Curriculum
Biology is a part of the science curriculum which is introduced during elementary school and which introduces increasingly complex topics during middle and high school. In biology the students gain experience in field and lab investigations. They also use scientific methods to carry on these investigations, including creating hypotheses and experiments. This enables them to gain critical thinking and problem solving skills. In this class, students learn about cells and viruses, tissues, taxonomy, and many other topics.
In World Geography, at Birmingham City School District, the students look at the people, places and environments locally and then compare them to regional, national and international areas. They also see how geography had a determination on events in the past and in the present. They also learn about the interaction of people and their physical surroundings. While in this class the students learn about the physical processes that are a part of geography as well as the political, economic, cultural and social processes of different places.

The MMC aligns with the Michigan Academic Standards that provide the scope, sequence, and grade-level expectations for students. In core subjects, these expectations are also aligned to the statewide standardized testing and used to ensure that students have mastered each topic and are prepared for the coming years. In high school, there is a greater variety of options, such as dual enrollment, International Baccalaureate, and Career Technical Education, so that students can tailor their learning experience to fit their 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: Helping Children with Spelling
Some children struggle with spelling but there are ways that parents can help them at home. First of all, when they come across a written word, have them tell what it says. This can apply to toothpaste, brand names or labels with their names. Another help is when the parent writes a note or a letter, they can talk to themselves as they write to help the child see the thinking process when writing. It is also a good idea to have the child dictate a letter for the parent to write and then the child reads it back to the parent when it is finished. Reading is another way to help the speller. By pointing out words while the parent and child read a book together, parents can help to show the sounds that each letter makes within the words. These ideas are good starting points for parents, and if the parent feels they would like more suggestions, they can talk with the teacher.
