Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Chillicothe District Curriculum
The Illinois Learning Standards is a competitive, rigorous program that ensures students receive a strong education that will prepare them for life after high school, whether they pursue post-secondary education, enter the military, or directly enter the workforce. In math classes, students study how and why the math works to ensure that they have a thorough understanding of mathematical principles. They learn how to reason quantitatively and to create models that allow them to make predictions about outcomes.
Science classes study the world around them and use scientific processes to experiment in real-world situations and learn to evaluate their observations. In humanities classes, students learn how to structure their opinions and thinking. They encounter a variety of types of reading and learn to be effective communicators. Community service is also stressed so that students can learn to consider the situations of others. Students who are involved in their community are more likely to become engaged, active citizens later 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: Public vs. Private Colleges
The fundamental difference between public and private colleges is how they’re funded. Public schools are funded by the state, which means that they have certain mandates to follow, including being required to accept a certain percentage of in-state students and offering in-state tuition. Private colleges are funded by tuition, mostly, and tend to have significantly higher tuition costs. The two types of schools are organized differently, also. Public schools tend to be organized into universities, which means that similar departments are grouped together, usually sharing a building, whereas private schools might be universities or might be colleges, which are organized differently. This is mostly due to since, since public schools tend to be larger than private schools, though this isn’t always the case.
