Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Chesterton District Curriculum
The language arts curriculum utilizes active listening skills and hands-on practice to increase students’ knowledge of the English language. Students study increasingly complex literature with the goal of enhancing comprehension and the ability to interpret and evaluate a variety of works. Foreign languages can also be mastered alongside the English language curriculum, if so desired. The skills mentioned are also focused on in these courses, while cultural knowledge is also gained.
Mandatory courses in mathematics teach students about numerical relationships, as well as how to evaluate a variety of expressions. Science and social studies classes introduce students to the world around them, starting with their immediate environment and progressing to world affairs. For students who wish to challenge themselves, AP courses are available in language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, foreign languages, and several other areas. Honors courses may be taken as well.

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: How To Complete A Math Assignment
Math is a subject that is difficult for many people. Completing homework assignments in this area gives students the opportunity to review and work out problems at their own pace. There are a few tips that students can follow to make sure that they learn from the assignments. Before you start your homework, review the textbook and any class notes. This way, if you get stuck on a problem, you’ll have an idea of where to find the explanation. Next, read each problem and make sure you understand it. This may require reading a problem more than once. Math problems are sometimes written so that they can be interpreted in several ways, so knowing what is expected of you is important. Showing your work is also very important when it comes to completing math assignments. If you get stuck, you or someone else can go back and find where you went wrong. Being able to look at every step of your homework can help with the learning process, so it is also very important to do your homework as neatly as possible. Finally, check your answers when you’re done.
