Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Beardstown District Curriculum
Beardstown Community Unit School District follows the Illinois Common Core Standards. It’s a competitive, rigorous curriculum intended to ensure that students receive a viable, strong education that will prepare them for life after high school, whether they pursue post-secondary education, enter the military, or directly enter the workforce. The learning objectives build in a progressive, scaffolded manner that allows students to use what they have previously learned to master new concepts.
In math classes, students memorize formulas but also study how and why the math works to ensure that they have a thorough understanding of mathematical principles on which to build. This means that they study fewer topics but study those topics in depth. In science classes, students study the world around them and advance to engineering problems. They use scientific processes to experiment in real-world situations and learn to evaluate their observations. In humanities classes, students read for understanding and to learn how to structure their opinions and thinking. They evaluate a variety of types of reading and learn to be effective communicators.

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: Updates to Textbooks
A recent change with textbooks is that they're not being used as frequently because learning has become more about exploring and being hands-on, not listening to the teacher lecture. Students still sit on the carpet together and work as groups, but they also collaborate on online Wikis and discussion boards from outside of school. Poster boards and dioramas have transformed into PowerPoint presentations, student-made videos, and digital stories. Libraries are not just about exploring books, but also discovering all the different digital media that exists and how to use it to locate information effectively. Chalkboards turned into white boards and then became SMART Boards. Today’s classrooms still have pencils, paper, physical textbooks, and lectures, but technology has added a completely new dynamic to education that has and will change it forever.
