Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Cicero District Curriculum
In the Cicero Public School District, Language Arts and Reading curriculum is designed to help students read at the appropriate level to help them succeed. They use the framework supported by the Common Core Curriculum Standards and other curricular tools for support. One tool used is the PEP program which helps prepare parents as educational partners to help their children at school and home with their reading.
In the early grades, Cicero Public Schools uses the Zaner Bloser Handwriting program to help students build the necessary handwriting skills for writing development. This program involves self-evaluation and practice to help students become more confident writers. At the high school level, the Morton High School District uses the Common Core Standards and College Readiness Standards to guide their curriculum development and instruction. They use the Reading in the Content Area program to encourage more rigorous reading and problem solving in the non-language arts classes. They also use a "Problem of the Day" program in all of their schools to truly address problem solving at the high school level.

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: Considerations for Choosing a College
High school seniors have the daunting task of choosing a college and most of them have no idea how to do it. There are a few considerations that high school students and their parents should take when the task. One of the first things that students should consider is the cost of the school. They should also look at the programs that the school offers. For some families, the location is also important. Many students think they want to attend a big university, but once they begin taking classes, they miss the personal attention they received in high school; the size of the college should also be a consideration. Once students and families have narrowed down their selections, they will have an easier time choosing the best college for their financial and educational needs.
