Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Thomas Township District Curriculum
History includes the study of the world. In the local schools, the students study events, or time periods, that have led countries to the place they are today. Teachers use a variety of material to help keep the study of history alive for the students. For example, the students may make a video of life in a medieval manor, they may create a song to teach others about the Bill of Rights. These activities help the students to look at life around them with an eye for the history that has brought it to where it is today.
Geometry is a central part of the mathematics curriculum at Thomas Township schools. This subject connects math to the real world and helps students develop their spatial awareness. The students study topics such as coordinates, transformations, measurement formulas and two- and three-dimensional figures. They also learn how to express geometric properties with equations, which calls upon them to have a strong understanding of algebraic relations.

Thomas Township District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The school districts in Thomas Township all share a common set of curricular standards which were established by the Michigan Department of Education and incorporate the goals of the Common Core in Math and Language Arts. Elementary students are instructed according to the Early Literacy Initiative which aims to ensure all students are proficient readers by the third grade. The focus on literacy is meant to scaffold the transition to middle school where they will be expected to do more analytic work and be able to master new material in social studies and science texts.

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: Raising Honest Kids
Older children may tell lies for many reasons, however, parents can try to stop this action in gentle ways while helping them to tell the truth. Before anything else, take a deep, calming breath and open up a conversation with the child to find out why they felt they had to lie. If they do not confess to the lie, then gently confront them. The idea is to help them, not embarrass them. When they do confess to truth, parents should try to praise this, not punish for the action behind the lie. Parents should let the child know that if they tell the truth, the parent may be able to help them. For example, if the child lies about their grade, the parent does not know and so cannot help the child bring the grade up. Finally, parents are a child first role-model, so they need to make sure that they can keep from telling lies themselves.
