Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Kankakee District Curriculum
The English Language Arts curriculum focuses on reading complex texts as well as building vocabulary. Students write analytical essays, using strong research skills to gather and evaluate information and use evidence to support their claims. Many students will also have opportunities to use journals for writing and to develop self-reflective skills. Students focus on reading nonfiction, rather than novels or poetry, and write analytically rather than creatively. The development of vocabulary, from the earliest grades through high school, is also emphasized in Language Arts classes.
In Mathematics, the curriculum focuses on a greater depth of instruction on fewer topics, so that students are able to master key topics before moving on. At the elementary level, students learn basic concepts like numbers and operations before moving onto more advanced topics in middle and high school once they have a firm foundation. The intent is for students to apply their math skills to real-world problems.

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: To Call or Not To Call
Parents want to be involved in the college application and search process, which is fine, but over-involvement can jeopardize an applicant’s chances of being accepted at a college by making the student appear incapable of doing things for him/herself. Some parents will call colleges to talk about applications, for example; communicating with admissions representatives might be necessary, but this communication should always be from the applicant him/herself. Likewise, emails should come from the applicant. Some parents will go so far as to help the student fill out his/her application, but it’s imperative that the student do this him/herself. The student should also take a key role in selecting which schools to apply to; guidelines for this, such as cost ranges, are fine, but when it comes to researching and applying to schools, the onus should be on the student. This way, the student is genuinely invested in the college and is more likely to thrive there.
