Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lake Bluff District Curriculum
Throughout their school years, the focus on core learning is emphasized and students are expected to develop strong problem-solving, communication, and inquiry skills. The elementary curriculum instills fundamental knowledge and skill sets in students, and then allows greater independence during the secondary years so that students can make decisions about the courses they will take that will best prepare them for post-secondary life. The district offers many learning experiences and activities, so that students can find and fulfill their goals.
The hope is that students will feel supported by faculty and parents and be inspired to follow their interests. The school focuses on concepts like learning by doing, applying students’ particular skillsets to improve the community, world, and each other. The school strives to create a place that prepares students for a successful future, but also one that is rich in the here and now. Students participate in a rigorous academic experience that also balances the importance of emotional wellness by incorporating the arts, clubs, activities, and community service.

The curriculum provides a series of learning objectives that scaffold student learning and prepare them to study subjects in greater depth as they progress.

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: Multiple Intelligences
Howard Gardner’s Multiple Intelligence Theory rests on the premise that people are intelligent in different areas and there is not necessarily just one way to measure this idea of intelligence. People high in verbal/linguistic intelligence may enjoy reading and writing, and often have the ability to explain things well. Logically inclined people thinking more abstractly and conceptually rather than concretely. Mathematically inclined learners like experiments, solving puzzles, working with numbers, and math formulas. Auditory learners are good at oral exams and like to learn through lectures, discussion, and reading aloud. People with musical intelligence love music and are often gifted with musical talents as well. Spiritual and naturalist intelligences were later added to the theory.
