Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Southgate District Curriculum
The Southgate Community School District teaches the Language Arts Common Core standards which detail the skills and strategies students are to learn. A main focus of these standards is the ability of students to cite information in the text as evidence for their opinion or answer. Students are first introduced to this skill in Kindergarten when teachers ask them why they think an event occurred in a story. As they enter the upper elementary grades, they will usually begin highlighting the text evidence during tests and group reading.
This strategy is beneficial because it forces students to go back and check their answers. Once students begin middle school they should be adept at using this strategy for reading, however they will then start to use it in other subjects. The Common Core has shifted the reading curriculum to include more non-fiction, which will be integrated into Science and Social Studies.

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: Why Taking a Foreign Language Is Important
Graduation requirements for most high schools around the country include a foreign language component. This requirement usually includes languages such as Spanish, French, German, Chinese, and Latin. Recently, other options such as Arabic and Korean have become available to students. Studying a foreign language is an important part of every student’s education for many reasons. Students who take a foreign language have increased cognitive skills that benefit other subject areas. Learning about another culture also makes students more globally aware and empathetic towards other people. Being able to speak another language opens many doors in the career world for students. Companies now have offices all over the world and look for employees to be well versed in more than one language. Students who choose to learn a foreign language are more culturally aware and benefit from more opportunities in life.
