Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Calumet Park District Curriculum
The Illinois Learning Standards provides detailed standards for the types of critical reading, analytic writing, mathematical problem-solving, and scientific inquiry that students should do each year. One recent update to the curriculum entails the reading curriculum which now places greater emphasis on reading non-fiction, informational texts than previously. The goal is to help students develop the different comprehension, analytic and interpretive skills they need to understand different texts.
The school districts strive to provide opportunities to all students and to meet students’ needs and encourage students to reach their full potential. The hope is that students will become self-directed learners and recognize where their personal and academic strengths lie. Students are also encouraged to get involved in their school and in their local community. The school also encourages behaviors that assist in the development of their character so that students learn not only how to learn but how to behave in order to achieve success in life.

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: Early Action
Many students want to reap the benefits of early applications without the drawbacks of a binding application. Early Action (EA) is a good middle ground for these students. EA are early, usually due in November, which means that applicants compete with fewer other students. Colleges favor EA applications and lump them in, somewhat, with Early Decision applicants, which leads to much higher acceptance rates. But EA applicants aren’t quite favored as much as Early Decision, so the acceptance rates aren’t as substantial. Still, students don’t face the same restrictions when they apply EA, either, and are free to attend whichever college they choose. So, EA is a good choice for many students.
