Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Traverse City District Curriculum
The Science curriculum introduces students to topics in earth science, biology, chemistry, physics, environmental science, and engineering. Students learn about how scientists conduct their work through processes of discovery or by trying to find a solution to a challenge. Students learn how to conduct lab experiments, learn by trial and error, and report their observations and findings. They also are required to read scientific texts and develop their scientific literacy so they can apply it in real world situations.
The mathematics curriculum at Traverse City Schools help students become proficient in using numbers and equations. The students begin by using manipulatives to help understand counting. They then move on to simple addition and subtraction and learn about more complex numbers like fractions. By the middle grades the students have progressed to solving equations with missing factors. In high school, the students have the opportunity to master advanced algebra, geometry and calculus which will help them in science and engineering courses.

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: Early Preparation for College
When thinking about college, it is difficult to know where to begin. Even if a student is not interested in the traditional four-year post-graduation education, it would be helpful for them to consider a two-year course so they can have a better chance of succeeding in the job market. Some high schools offer programs called tech-prep, school-to-career, or similar names which are worthwhile to look into. If a four-year education is the choice, students need to consider taking as many science and mathematics courses that they can. Quite often this is the area that admission offices look at when making decisions. They also consider extracurricular activities, including any volunteering or awards. It is never too early to begin to help a child prepare for success in entering the college of their choice.
