Columbia District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Columbia Community Unit District #4 believes that all students should be afforded opportunities to succeed in achieving the curricular expectations, regardless of background or learning style. Teachers are given the opportunity to individualize their lesson plans to fit the needs of their students, whether that be to provide more challenging course work for an advanced student or to help a struggling student catch up to grade level. Interventions are available for students who need them. Diversity is also stressed in the school district, and all students are taught to respect and celebrate diversity in others.
We currently cover the following Columbia-area school district: Columbia Community Unit District #4.

Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Columbia District Curriculum
The Illinois Learning Standards (ILS) provide the criteria for grade-level learning in each academic subject. The English Language Arts frameworks provide standards for critical reading, writing, communication, media literacy and research skills. There is also an emphasis on language (grammar and mechanics) including vocabulary development. Written and spoken communication is also emphasized, and along with their literacy skills, students are expected to use all these abilities in their other academic subjects.
The district prides itself on focusing on students' academic, athletic, and performing arts achievements as well. There is a focus on community service and outreach, and students are expected to develop beyond the classroom skills through these experiences. Extracurricular activities serve as a way to connect students to their interests and allows them to hone their craft in the arts, work on robotics challenges in small groups, compete in academic competitions against other schools, and work with their peers on community service projects.

Chalk Talk: College Interviews
The first thing to consider with a college interview is appearance. This isn’t to say you need to wear a tuxedo, but look your best. Secondly, consider how you present yourself. Be engaging and engaged. That means look the interviewer in the eye, participate in the conversation, and try to be friendly. Being funny can help, though irreverence is probably too much. Have some questions prepared, but make them good questions. Don’t ask things that you could find out by reading the college’s website. Rather, ask questions about your specific interests at the college. The most important thing is to engage the interviewer in a conversation. Demonstrate intelligence and intellectual curiosity; try your best to have something worthwhile to say.
