Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Troy District Curriculum
In English and Language Arts, the essentials of Common Core are that all students learn to read, write, listen and speak in a way that demonstrates a command of the English language. The program is progressive so that students begin the process of learning about literature, understanding key features in a story, and answering questions about what was read. This ability to analyze reading material and relate it to other writings and to themselves and the greater world is part of the ELA program throughout the rest of schooling.
In Math, students are taught using the basics of the Common Core Curriculum which is to provide training in mathematical problem solving, understanding of mathematical concepts, and using mathematical procedures. Students learn to apply the mathematical skills they learn to real world experiences. The goal is to have students that are mathematically literate and who know what type of mathematical skill to use when confronted with an everyday problem.

Testimonials and Case Studies from Our Parents
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.
My daughter was very self-conscious about her difficulties with the math section of the SAT. SchoolTutoring Academy’s Academic Directors created an action plan that boosted my daughter’s score and confidence level.
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.
