Educating Our Parents: Understanding the St. Clair District Curriculum
The curriculum in Math lays a foundation of knowledge in problem solving strategies, computational processes, and ways to interpret and understanding quantitative information. When students are in high school, the courses they take in Algebra, Geometry, or pre-Calculus designed to bring about these outcomes through advanced topics which are presented in both an Applied and an Academic approach. Students who want to be prepared for mathematical or scientific studies at the university level are encouraged to choose the Academic Path.
The curriculum in English has been organized around broad goals of literacy and communication development. Students are expected to read across the content areas and learn ways to decode and analyze texts. Media studies has become an increasing focus in the English curriculum and offers students a range of media texts that they can use to interpret and evaluate. Of significant importance is the development of writing and recognition of how to craft written expression.

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: Skills for High School Students
High school students will be more likely to succeed if they develop specific skills. Everyone enjoys free time, but it is important to be able to manage class time, homework, and free time. A daily planner can help to keep track of this schedule, and keep the student from over-scheduling their time. To go along with this, students need to make sure they are always prepared for class and attend regularly. Assignments need to be complete and on-time. During study time, the student should spend time, daily, reviewing notes so that it will not be too overbearing on test day. Finally, to help make sure that the student’s concentration level is the highest during class, help them to see the importance of a good night’s sleep.
