Educating Our Parents: Understanding the White Lake Township District Curriculum
As the nation pushes for students to take part in more STEM classes, Mathematics has become a huge focal point in these districts’ curriculums. Even at the Kindergarten level, students are already solving addition and subtraction word problems. As students move up in grade level, they will work on standards that include place value, fractions, multiplication, and division. Teachers use several different teaching strategies and approaches in order to help students reach mastery of these standards including games and technology.
When students enter middle school they should be fluent in the fundamentals of Mathematics. In middle school, students will dig deeper into the fundamentals with topics such as negative numbers, linear equations, and writing equations. High school mathematics is more complex in that students take courses on certain strands instead of inclusive classes.

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: What Technology Is Used in the Classroom?
During the last twenty years there has been a dramatic change in the technology available in classrooms. Gone are the days of the overhead projector, slide reel, and chalkboard. As the world has seen giant leaps in technological advances, so have schools. An interactive white board is one of these advances that are being installed in most classrooms around the country. These boards take the place of televisions and overhead projectors. Teachers can use the boards to show videos, write notes, play games, and display textbooks. Another change in school technology is the use of computers. Where classrooms used to have one desktop computer, now classrooms are equipped with enough laptops for each student. A lot of schools have even enacted Bring Your Own Device policies that allow students to bring their own laptops or tablets to school. As technology advances, schools are striving to keep up so that students are exposed to the most up-to-date equipment and strategies.
