Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lockport District Curriculum
The curriculum is based on the Illinois Common Core Standards for math and English language arts and the Next Generation Science Standards. In English language, history, and humanities classes, students learn research and analytical skills while reading complex, nonfiction texts. Students also develop grammatical and vocabulary skills. These skills are also drawn upon in the writing curriculum which calls upon students to write in a variety of formats.
In mathematics and science classes, students work on fundamental concepts, covering them thoroughly to ensure that students have mastered the material they need before moving on to more challenging topics in high school. The curriculum focuses on real-world applications whenever possible. Students are also encouraged to become involved in extra-curricular activities such as sports and community service in order to broaden their experiences.

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: Thank-You Notes
It might seem old fashioned, but Thank-You Notes can be a real help for applicants. Thank-You Notes are thoughtful and conscientious, and they also show that the student is interested in a particular college. They give a college representative a positive impression of an applicant. Whenever a student visits a college campus or meets with a representative, s/he should send a Thank-You Note. It doesn’t have to say much; it can be an email simply saying thank you. Actually, it shouldn’t be very long. Remember that college representatives have a lot of mail and emails to read, and you don’t want to turn something that’s supposed to be simple and positive into a hassle. Thank-You Notes are also a good way to establish a relationship, or further a relationship, with a specific representative. If the applicant has questions about a college, s/he can now easily and confidently email the representative, having established a good relationship with them.
