Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lemont District Curriculum
Students read nonfiction texts for comprehension and analytic understanding. They use a variety of techniques, resources, and technology to gather information, and collect, organize, and analyze information. Students are taught to be critical thinkers who use analytical thinking to solve problems while evaluating their own work and contribution to group work. Both independent and collaborative work and learning skills are emphasized.
Students are expected to treat themselves and others with respect and are capable of working within a variety of groups to achieve their goals. Students should be able to accept constructive criticism and manage and evaluate their own behavior. An important element of Lemont High School’s mission is that students become responsible individuals who demonstrate ethical behaviors and accept responsibility for their own actions. Students should also be socially responsible citizens who demonstrate respect for differing points of view.

Lemont District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The districts mission is for its students to become life-long, independent learners and productive citizens in a rapidly changing world. The faculty tries to accomplish this by teaching students to be knowledgeable people who understand and apply a core body of knowledge and skills across the curriculum and take responsibility for their own learning. Another goal in integrating knowledge is to have students pursue elective courses in areas that are of particular interest to them, and have their core learning lend to their overall development.

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: State vs. Private Colleges
There are several subtle differences between state and private colleges, but the main difference has to do with how they’re funded. State colleges are funded by the state, so they are required to accept a certain percentage of in-state applicants. Also, tuition tends to be less expensive at state schools, though a competitive student might easily receive enough aid from a private college to make it affordable. Private colleges are tuition driven, which means they tend to have higher tuitions. The curriculum of state colleges tends to be mandated or overseen by the state, so there’s less freedom than at private colleges. Also, because private colleges are tuition funded, they tend to be more focused on the needs of the “customer.” Private colleges tend to offer more individualized services, such as learning support. State schools also tend to be organized into universities, whereas private schools might be universities or colleges.
