Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Bethalto District Curriculum
Bethalto Community Unit School District strives to develop critical thinkers, readers, and writers. Through the institution of a viable curriculum, the district provides instruction in the essential foundational skills for the young elementary students. As students progress through the grade levels, they are exposed to a wide range of texts that vary in genre, cultures, and time period, and they read both literary and nonfiction selections. In math, the district aims for students to develop fluency in math procedures.
Bethalto Community Unit School District follows curriculum guides for each academic department in the high school: art, business, English, math, science, social studies, health and physical education, music, the family and consumer sciences, foreign languages, and special education. Each of these curriculum guides includes a description of the content areas. At this level, students are encouraged to choose a pathway and pursue it so that they are prepared to meet the challenges of post-secondary life.

Bethalto District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Bethalto Community Unit School District follows Illinois Learning Standards to guide instruction for all its students. The curriculum establishes the expectations for each year in each subject and is designed to progress students through a logical series of new skills and concepts as they go along. Students are expected to achieve proficiency in these standards so they are prepared for the next level and there are appropriate supports and enhancements in place to ensure all students can meet or exceed the standards. Students are also encouraged to pursue their own interests through the electives and extracurricular activities offered.
We currently cover the following Bethalto-area school district: Bethalto Community Unit School District 8.

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: Demonstrated Interest
There is some debate as to how much influence demonstrated interest holds over a selection committee at a college. The fact is, it depends on the college, but demonstrated interest holds so many positive elements, that it really doesn’t matter if it’s something the college tracks or not. For example, the most basic and common form of demonstrated interest is a college visit. If a student intends to apply, visiting is essential, regardless. They can get a feel for the campus and learn information and get perspectives they can’t find on a website. Some colleges offer interviews when visiting, and these are also very useful. They humanize the applicant and give the applicant a chance to match a face with the college. This can come in handy down the line by providing a point of contact for the applicant.
