Educating Our Parents: Understanding the LaSalle District Curriculum
The core subjects of Math and Science are designed to teach students inquiry, research, and problem-solving abilities. The elementary and middle school classes provide the foundational understanding of measurement, probability, manipulations, and creating mathematic models. This is applied to the more focused classes that require a full suite of geometry or algebra skills to be developed by students. The aim of the Curriculum is to provide students with opportunities to learn these skills for advanced classes in trigonometry, physics, engineering and technology.
Science, which has been infused with technology, offers students many chances to explore scientific concepts and to gain a sense of the process of scientific learning. Students are expected to develop an understanding of the major concepts and factual knowledge within their science courses, and by doing so they develop a framework for understanding the biological sciences, earth and environmental sciences, chemistry and physics.

LaSalle District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The districts in LaSalle prepare students for the paths which they want to be on through the design of the curriculum and the course offerings in core subjects required for graduation. The subjects are detailed as to the expectations for student learning at each grade level and the goals for students by learning the lessons, skills, and concepts essential to each subject. Students coursework in English is designed to lay the foundation for cross-curricular literacy and communication skills, while also emphasizing the enjoyment of reading and discussion. Writing is a major factor in this subject, and students learn how to write for different purposes such as reflection, story-telling, analysis, persuasive or expository writing. Another area where students develop critical reading and interpretation skills is in their media studies courses which not only ask students to participate in textual analysis but also to create work using media and new technology.

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: Holiday-Themed Educational Ideas
Easter egg hunts are a fun activity, but teachers can incorporate them in the classroom in order to create activities that have an educational twist. There are a wide array of matching activities that teachers can integrate in math and reading. For example, teachers can write problems (any operation) on one half of a plastic Easter egg and solutions in the other half; teachers shouldn't worry about matching egg colors or else students will choose matches based on color instead of trying to actually solve problems. Another idea is to match fractions and decimals. In English language arts, matches can include synonyms, antonyms, definitions with vocabulary words, parts of speech with words, and so on.
