Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Joliet District Curriculum
Joliet Schools follow the Common Core Curriculum standards, but they have some other unique curriculum programs. The 21st Century program helps students manage their homework time while building character through special courses in art, technology, and career education. Students in Joliet Public Schools also are included in a program called Children For Peace which helps students learn how to handle conflicts.
The Joliet High Schools use both a College Prep and Honors program. These programs are designed to prepare students for college, even if they choose to start a career right after completing high school. They also have dual enrollment opportunities for students who are interested in earning college credit during high school.

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: How to Know if a Book is "Just Right"
When you are growing readers, it is important to help them find books that are just right, rather than too easy or too difficult. When a book is too easy, children will not build reading skills and if a book is too hard, children will become frustrated and will not want to read. When a book is just right, a child will be able to read most of the words, but there will still be new words that will provide a challenge. The "Five Finger" rule is the best way for students to tell if it is too difficult. Students read a page in the book and each time they come to an unknown word, they count with their fingers. If they have counted five unknown words on one page, the book is too difficult. Having a few unknown words is a good choice, but when there are not any unknown words, the book is too easy.
