Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lansing District Curriculum
The curriculum encourages an atmosphere that stimulates self-awareness and an intrinsic motivation for self-improvement, a meaningful value system, a dedicated work ethic, a responsibility for their learning, a respect for themselves and for others, and a direction that assists them in becoming responsible members of society.
The curriculum follows the Illinois Common Core Standards, which are based on international standards in order to facilitate student’s entry into post-secondary education and the workforce while competing on a global level. The standards ensure equal opportunities for education regardless of location or learning style. The curriculum focuses on critical thinking and research skills as well as key concepts in mathematics and science. The curriculum attempts to apply these concepts to real-world situations as frequently as possible. Because of the ever-growing focus on global issues, students must be able to compete on a global level.

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: Bridge Programs
Different students come into their own at different times, and sometimes this doesn’t happen until after a student has had a rough year or two in high school. Sometimes, students may have a learning difference that isn’t recognized until farther along in the student’s academic career. Even though the student might then work hard for junior and senior year, those first two weaker years might really seem to hold the student back from even getting into college. Bridge Programs are a great way to help students overcome these challenges. Bridge Programs typically admit students on a probationary status in the summer. Students might take a summer class and then mainstream in the fall, or students may continue with the Bridge Program throughout the first term. Not every college offers a Bridge Program, but those that do report very strong graduation rates among participants—much higher than non-participants.
