Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Carol Stream District Curriculum
The schools believe in providing all students with opportunities to take responsibility for their own learning by providing intervention strategies to address significant achievement gaps as well as creating personalized learning environments that address each student’s academic, social, and emotional needs. In the classroom, this means that teachers follow the Illinois Common Core curriculum for Mathematics and Language Arts. Though they have some flexibility in differentiating their lesson plans to suit the specific needs of students, the focus is on establishing a base of knowledge and growing it.
In English Language Arts, the focus is on analytical reading of nonfiction, complex texts for the purpose of gathering information, building arguments, and supporting these claims in both written work and in group discussions. The science curriculum is based on the Next Generation curriculum which emphasizes key concepts and real-world problem solving, starting with foundational concepts and then progressing to more complex skills and ideas.

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: Resume Do's and Don'ts
When it comes to a resume, many students are in uncharted territory. It can seem like a daunting task to distill ones activities and experience down to one page, but it’s not as difficult as it seems. Here are a few key ideas to remember about resumes: 1) It should be one page only, 2) The student’s name, contact information, and GPA should be at the top, usually centered, 3) Activities should be grouped under various themes such as “Community Service” and “Leadership” 4) Think about the content of each section you add. What will each item tell the admissions committee about you as a person and student? Students will often add activities that don’t serve much of a purpose. If an activity can demonstrate multiple qualities you have, then it’s probably much more useful to add, 5) Don’t pad it. Adding every club or sport you’ve ever been a part of might seem impressive, but awards, etc. in those clubs or athletics might be more useful.
