Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Cary District Curriculum
In the classroom, the district requires that teachers follow the Illinois Common Core curriculum for mathematics, science, and humanities classes. Teachers do have some flexibility in differentiating their lesson plans and are encouraged to meet the specific needs of individual students’ learning styles, the focus remains the teaching of key, foundational ideas, like numbers and operations, in math classes, which then progress onto more complex concepts once a basis has been established.
In humanities, students read complex, nonfiction texts to gather information, build arguments, and support their claims in analytical writing. They also study literature and have opportunities for creative and reflective writing as well. Students are expected to be able to discuss literature and present information using different media technologies. The hope is that when students graduate, they will be able to apply these concepts which they’ve mastered and then progress to their post-secondary education.

Cary District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The goal of the districts is to engage their students in problem-solving and critical thinking through the use of a rigorous curriculum while connecting these lessons to real-world contexts. The hope is that students will be prepared to transition successfully into post-secondary education and careers. Students are provided opportunities to take responsibility for their own learning and intervention strategies are in place to address significant achievement gaps regardless of learning style.

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.

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: College Resumes
College resumes should be one page long for ease of reading. Formatting can vary, but the applicant’s name, contact information, and GPA should appear at the top, usually centered. Information can be grouped in a variety of ways, but each section should be set apart with a title of the section either in bold or with a line extending all the way across the page, for example. Many students will use sections like Leadership Opportunities and Work Experiences. Many students will include sports and clubs, and these can be very important to include. A good rule of thumb is to include only items which demonstrate multiple qualities for students. For example, being a member of a club doesn’t necessarily mean that much, but being a leader of a club, or being a member of a club that does volunteer work or promotes diversity can be very helpful.
