Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Spring Lake Township District Curriculum
Spring Lake Public Schools includes history in its Social Studies curriculum. Many resources are used to help make history come to life for the students. Included in their resources are literature, newspapers, films and primary sources. Each of these items help the students become aware of the people and the events that have come before them and how they shaped modern events. The students also learn how to use the information from these resources to see history from other viewpoints.
The Spring Lake Public Schools mathematics curriculum includes developing student understanding about the use of formulas. This can include simple addition, and subtraction which is learned in the early years as well as those used in algebra when studying graphs to find the direction, rate and slope of a person who is walking. The students also are asked to create an original story problem to reflect what is learned each day. The study of formulas can help the students become better problem-solvers throughout their lives.

Spring Lake Township District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Spring Lake Public Schools use the Michigan Merit Curriculum as the basis for student learning. The curriculum gives educators details about the scope and sequence of learning, thereby ensuring that all students across the state are receiving the same quality academic standards. Each subject is organized according to the major topics of the subject, such as biology, chemistry and physical science in the Science curriculum, and students are introduced to grade-level appropriate content in each of these areas throughout elementary and middle school. In high school, the specific topics become full year courses allowing in-depth study.
We currently cover the following Spring Lake Township-area school district: Spring Lake Public Schools.

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 has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades. Test Prep Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades.
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: Overcoming Test Anxiety
Test anxiety can strike students of all ages and abilities. Many are familiar with the feeling of fear that can come when facing tests, from increased heart rate, perspiration and the feeling of going blank. To help overcome this anxiety, parents can support their child by helping them attend school regularly and creating a restful place at home the weeks of testing. It’s also important for students with test anxiety to take their time. They should not feel rushed, but feel like they have had adequate time to read and understand all the questions, as well as review their answers. Parents also need to keep track of a child's progress over time, not just on one test. Communication with the child while giving encouragement will also help. Finally, talk with school officials if there are any questions or concerns about a test result.
