Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lake Villa District Curriculum
The Math curriculum incorporates Common Core Standards in numeracy, algebraic operations, geometry and measurement, and data and quantitative analysis. Skills are taught in all these areas during elementary and middle school so that students are prepared for full-year courses in subjects like algebra, geometry, and statistics when they start high school. Advanced Placement options are also available and there are an increasing number of engineering courses that require students have a strong background in math.
The Science curriculum uses Next Generation Science Standards which emphasize that students have a strong foundation in scientific facts, concepts, and processes. The standards also place emphasis on areas where the sciences are integrated such as chemistry and physics, bio-chemistry, and other innovative topics that dovetail with high demand career areas. Engineering is another area of focus and students draw upon their understanding of both math and science in the engineering and robotics programs that are available.

Lake Villa District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The districts believe that all students can succeed, regardless of learning style, and that all students deserve opportunities to succeed, both academically and otherwise. The school’s curriculum follows the Illinois Learning Standards and is tested and rigorous, providing a fair, equal education to all students. All students need to be made aware of what’s expected of them as learners and citizens. Teachers are given the freedom to modify their lesson plans to support the learning needs of students, whether that be to provide a more rigorous, challenging course of study or to include remedial work to help catch a student up to grade level.
We currently cover the following Lake Villa-area school districts: Lake Villa District 41, Community High School District 117, Grant Community High School, and Grayslake Community High School District 127.

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: Rolling Applications
Rolling applications are college applications without a set due date, though there is an informal start and end date to the reading season. Most applications have a firm due date, and even if students apply before that date, their applications probably won’t even be read or considered until that date has passed. Then, they must wait often a long time—months—to hear a decision. Rolling applications are different in that students can submit any time after the “start” date, which is usually pretty early, maybe October or even September. Students then receive a decision usually within three weeks. This is significantly less stressful than waiting months. It doesn’t mean the college hasn’t spent less time considering the application; it just means they’ve processed it more efficiently.
