Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Cicero District Curriculum
Cicero’s English language arts students are expected to develop and demonstrate literacy in a wide rage of subject areas, genres, and mediums. Though the English Language Arts curriculum is concerned with reading and writing, those are not its only focus. Students also work to develop and demonstrate speaking, listening, and language skills that allow them to build knowledge, understand other points of view, and expand their ideas and worldviews.
Cicero’s math students are expected to develop a deep understanding of core mathematics concepts. From the earliest grades students reason abstractly, seek to understand what makes mathematical statements true of false, and analyze and solve mathematics problems. Students are expected to take these skills out of the classroom and apply them to real world applications such as statistics and in matters of economics and finance.

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: Media Savvy
It is good for students to be well read, but literacy does not begin and end with words on a page or screen. Today’s kids are constantly bombarded with messages from films, online videos, songs, and advertisements. As such, it is important that students develop media literacy, in particular the ability to distinguish quality information and to recognize the amount of time spent on different genres of online media. Students who are capable of interpreting, critiquing, and discussing the texts they read are also capable of interpreting, critiquing, and discussing the messages they get from audio and visual sources. However, they are often reluctant to do this because they do not think of it as a normal part of consuming media. It is important for teachers and parents to encourage students to treat audio and visual media in they same way they treat texts. After all, they get most of their information these forms of media.
