Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Westland District Curriculum
In English and Language Arts, students are not just expected to learn phonics and vocabulary. They are also taught to ask questions about what they are reading and encouraged to monitor their own attitudes about literature in their lives. At an early age, students are exposed to both fiction and non-fiction texts and taught that each needs to be approached with different modes of thinking.
The Mathematics curriculum in Westland begins with Everyday Math, a comprehensive and hands-on math program that supports Michigan's Grade Level Content Expectations. This program exposes students to a variety of mathematics topics and builds on them year after year so students enter high school with a deep understanding of mathematical processes. Once in high school, a variety of mathematics classes are offered, including many Advanced Placement classes, that will prepare students for next steps into college and careers.

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.

Chalk Talk: The Scientific Method
Scientists and students both use the scientific method to discover and explain the natural world around them. The first step is to make an educated guess about how something would react in an experimental setting. This statement is called the hypothesis. Then, an experiment tests the hypothesis to determine if it was correct or not. After reflection, the last step is to draw conclusions about what was observed and create new information. But, what's amazing is that elementary students all the way up to professional scientists use this same basic method for conducting experiments and doing research.
