Educating Our Parents: Understanding the La Grange District Curriculum
The curriculum follows the Illinois Common Core Standards, which attempt to offer all students an equal education, regardless of location. The main focus of the curriculum is on critical thinking skills. Students use critical and analytical thinking to solve problems, evaluating and refining strategies to do so. Students collect, organize, analyze, and retain information which they use to support and test theses. Students are also given opportunities to transfer acquired knowledge to relevant and practical life experiences through project and collaborative work whenever possible.
To accomplish this, students must be effective communicators who observe attentively, speak effectively, write clearly and expressively, and demonstrate good listening skills. They must also demonstrate a commitment to establish goals and then meet and exceed them. Students are also taught to use resources, technology, and time effectively and efficiently to conduct research and complete independent projects.

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: Standardized Test Scores
SAT and ACT tests are considered to be the second most important part of a college application, after the transcript, but why? The purpose of these standardized tests is that they are used to help determine how successful a student will be in college. A low-scoring student is considered less likely to succeed in college, and vice versa. Recent research has shown that this isn’t always the case, which has led some colleges to accept score-optional applications, or to no longer require standardized test scores. An interesting finding in this research is that the essay does tend to determine how well the student will do in college, so many test-optional schools require an essay in lieu of test scores, though some will take an interview. This might be a graded, written exam or essay from a high school class, or an essay responding to a prompt. The reality is that though this new trend of test-optional schools might seem like a Godsend, the majority of colleges still require test scores, and there is a lot of research to support them.
