Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Highland Park District Curriculum
The mathematics curriculum begins by introducing students to fundamentals in numerical operations, algebraic relationships, geometry and measurement, and data analysis. In high school, each of these areas become full year courses giving students the chance to work on more complex problem-solving methods. In algebra, students learn about linear functions, equations, and inequalities and students become able to write linear equations and determine the slope of a line.
The geometry portion of the high school math curriculum helps students develop many skills used in various aspects of life. Students learn how to work with coordinate and transformational geometry and become able to use the distance, slope, and midpoint formulas to verify geometric relationship. They also learn how to work with logical arguments and constructions to understand geometric relationships. These abilities help them develop deductive reasoning skills which can be applied to many problem-solving situations.

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: Preparing for College as a High School Freshman
From the time that a teen enters high school, they should already be thinking about what they need to do to be considered by colleges. The admission process can be very competitive and students need to do what they can to stand out in a positive way. As a freshman, students should begin looking at their schoolwork and see what they can do to help their work shine. Parents need to make sure that the child is taking classes that are needed to enter their college of choice, and use this time to talk with the child about their strengths and interests and how to use these to guide their future. Many colleges like to see that a students has set demanding goals throughout their education, so it is necessary to set this in action in the freshman year.
