Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Dolton District Curriculum
The school follows the Illinois Common Core Learning standards. The mathematics curriculum focuses on covering topics in depth. At the elementary school level, the curriculum emphasizes basic concepts such as numbers and operations to make sure students master the foundations of mathematics before progressing onto more advanced concepts in middle and high school. The aim is for students to acquire the skills and knowledge necessary to become lifelong learners.
The humanities curriculum focuses on a comprehensive understanding of key concepts, which includes reading and comprehending complex texts and writing analytic essays. The focus is more on nonfiction texts than novels or poetry, again, with an emphasis on mastering basic concepts such as grammar rules and comprehension, early on, and progressing to focus on encouraging the development of students’ abilities to gather information from reading and use evidence to back their claims while writing, in high school, as well as expanding their vocabularies.

Dolton District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The schools aim to give all students the opportunity to learn in a safe and nurturing environment and creating a culture of excellence, respect, and pride for students, faculty, and staff. The faculty try to provide students the tools to learn, to think, to solve problems, and to make thoughtful decisions so that they are prepared for their post-secondary future in the community and the global society. Instructional teams review student learning data—academic, physical, emotional, and behavioral—to assess and make decisions about curriculum and instructional strategies, and the school culture supports teachers in practicing effective and responsive instruction to meet individual student needs.

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: SAT Subject Tests
The SAT Subject Test, or SATII, is exactly what it sounds like; a standardized test that focuses on one specific subject, such as math levels 1 or 2, US History, World History, Chemistry, Physics, various languages, etc. As such, they are much shorter than the regular SAT, but also delve much more in-depth in the particular subject. Not every college requires them, though most of the more selective do, and students planning to enter hard sciences or math probably need to take them. Even if they aren’t required, a good score will make a student more appealing to the college. Colleges that do require them tend to want two tests, though many will accept ACT scores instead. There are several different subject tests, and some are more meaningful than others to colleges. Of course, the tests most closely related to the student’s area of interest will be the most valuable.
