Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Homer Glen District Curriculum
The curriculum is based on the Illinois Common Core standards which are intended to ensure that students receive a quality, rigorous, competitive education regardless of where they live. The curriculum establishes a clear set of expectations for what students should know and master by the end of each grade level in English language arts and humanities classes as well as mathematics and science classes so that all students meet similarly high standards.
The curriculum emphasizes skills that students need to succeed in college and the professional world with a focus on real-world applications. The curriculum is benchmarked with internationals standards so that students will be well-equipped to compete in today’s increasingly global economy and ultimately prepared for post-secondary education and the workforce. The mission is to assist all students in developing the competencies to live and to work effectively in a changing world by maintaining rigorous academic expectations.

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: Test Optional Applications
Standardized test scores might seem like the bane of some students’ existence, but the reality is that for many colleges, these test scores are not only required, but tend to be the second most important part of the application packet, after the transcript. Standardized test scores are intended to demonstrate how well a student will fare in college, but more and more research is showing that this isn’t always the case. Some students just don’t test well, but in real-world situations, they are very successful. Test Optional Applications have become fairly popular because of this. Some schools will allow students to apply without sending test scores; instead, they usually will be required to submit a graded written exam or an essay. This is because the same research that shows that test scores don’t necessarily reflect a student’s success in college also shows that the essay portion of standardized tests DOES tend to reflect a student’s future success.
