Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Elgin District Curriculum
The Math curriculum begins by introducing students to concepts in numeracy and operations, algebraic patterns and relationships, shapes and measurement, and proportions and ratios. In high school, the curriculum covers one and half-credit courses in Algebra, Geometry, Precalculus, Mathematical Modeling, Discrete Mathematics, Statistics, and Advanced Quantitative Reasoning. There are also Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate course in math topics as well as the opportunity to do an Independent Study.
The English Language Arts and Reading curriculum is designed to teach reading, writing, media literacy, communication skills, and research skills so that students can use these abilities effectively in all their classes. Reading instruction covers fiction and non-fiction so that students understand the different ways to analyze and interpret each. Writing instruction offers a number of ways for students to write including persuasively, creatively, and analytically. Research skills are also important and students learn how to use their library resources.

Each subject area has a framework that presents a logical progression of skills and knowledge for students to master in the subject, as well as the types of critical thinking activities they should be working on.

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: Good Homework Habits
To help children develop as successful students, parents need to assist them in setting good homework habits. Parents also need to realize that homework should not be a struggle. If the parent and child are not getting along in the moment, take a step away and when things have settled down again, ask the child if they would like any help. Finally, parents need to remember to be a role model for the child. If the parent has a project that needs to be done, set up a time table and work to meet this schedule until the project is done. This can be anything from preparing a meal to completing a presentation for work. Once these habits take hold, homework will be a happier time and a more productive time for parent and child.
