Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Downers Grove District Curriculum
In Mathematics, the Common Core encourages a greater depth of instruction on fewer topics within a school year. Beginning at the elementary school level, basic concepts like numbers and operations are emphasized so that students master the foundations of mathematics before moving onto more advanced topics in middle school and high school. The hope is that students will be able to apply their math skills to real world problems.
The Science curriculum is based on the Next Generation Science Standards. Beginning in elementary school, the focus is on foundational concepts to begin an observation and study of the world around us. Once these elements have been established, students advance to science and engineering studies in high school. In English Language Arts, the emphasis is on reading nonfiction, writing analytical essays, and studying more complex texts which develop students’ ability to gather information and use evidence to back their claims. view all Downers Grove tutors
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: Types of College Applications
There are four main types of college applications. Regular Decision is the most common. This is exactly what it sounds like; students apply normally. Often, the deadline is December 1st, but it can be later. The drawback for some applicants is that colleges won’t read the application until the deadline, so even if a student sends in an application much earlier, it won’t be read until that deadline. One of the most controversial types of application is the Early Decision (ED) application. With ED applications, students, parents, and college counselors all sign a contract saying that the student will attend this college if accepted. A third type is Early Action (EA). This is similar to ED but non-binding, so the student gets the benefit of an early application but without the binding contract. EA isn’t as helpful to borderline students as ED is because it doesn’t demonstrate interest as strongly as ED does. The fourth type is Rolling admissions. Rolling simply means that the college reads the application as soon as it is received, rather than waiting for the deadline to pass.
