Educating Our Parents: Understanding the LaSalle District Curriculum
The Illinois Learning Standards provide clear expectations for what students are supposed to learn by the end of each school year in each class. Teachers are afforded the opportunity to tailor their lesson plans to match the individual needs of students, though, to ensure that students are challenged at their own levels. The hope is that students will take personal responsibility for their own learning and develop a lifelong love of learning that will lead them to greater success academically and after graduation in their own lives.
The Illinois Learning Standards adopted Common Core Standards in Math and Language Arts so that students were receiving the same high quality learning objectives as students across the country. Each subject details the major topics and provide grade-appropriate targets for learning skills, knowledge and concepts, and critical thinking strategies related to the subject. The Science curriculum has expanded to include technology and engineering concepts, and to be integrated with math so that students receive a fully-integrated STEM learning experience.

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: College Interviews
Many students will prepare for a college interview by memorizing a bunch of facts about the college, which they will then recite to the interviewer. I can’t imagine anything more boring to have to listen to. A college interview is about making a human connection. The interviewer is trying to get to know the prospective student, to get a feel for his personality, how he handles himself, whether he seems serious about college, and any other insights he can gather. Be personable. Have a conversation. Be funny, even, though don’t go overboard with that. Passion is a great indicator of intellectual engagement, even if that passion is a little off-center, but try to connect it to something more useful. So, if you’re really passionate about a hobby, try to highlight things like commitment, engagement, work ethic, and the like. They want to see that you’ve got the potential to be a good student, so help them see that.
