Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Lombard District Curriculum
The curriculum is intended to prepare students for a successful transition into post-secondary education and careers through consistent course/subject learning targets, assessments of common course standards and outcomes, and aligned staff development. The curriculum is also expected to provide students with opportunities to take responsibility for their own learning. To this end, reading, research, technology use, communication, writing and process-oriented problem solving skills are emphasized.
The curriculum is intended to foster a supportive, safe environment that inspires learning as well as encouraging engagement with the school and providing intervention strategies to address significant achievement gaps for whom they exist, regardless of social, economic, or any other situations the students might exhibit. This can entail creating personalized learning environments that address each student’s academic, social and emotional needs.

Lombard District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The curriculum is based on the Illinois Common Core Standards for Math and English Language Arts and the Next Generation Science Standards, which focus on the teaching of key concepts across the board to build a solid educational foundation. These standards were created in order to prepare students to be productive citizens equipped to challenge the future as knowledgeable people, critical thinkers, effective communicators, quality producers, collaborative workers, responsible individuals, and socially responsible citizens.
We currently cover the following Lombard-area school district: Glen Ellyn School District 41, Elementary School District 44, Elementary School District 45, Community Consolidated School District 89, Glenbard East District 87, and DuPage High School District 88.

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: The Importance of First Impressions in a College Interview
First impressions are hard to shake, and a bad first impression might require a lot of work to change. That’s why it’s so important to do everything possible to make a good first impression. Speaking well and clearly, appearing calm and relaxed, and appearing professional can help ensure that the first impression a college representative makes of you is the right one. You don’t have to wear a ball gown or a tuxedo, but dressing well can do a lot of work for you; it sends the message that you are a serious, responsible student, whereas wearing a tee-shirt and jeans or shorts sends the impression that you aren’t taking the situation very seriously. Similarly, be thoughtful with your answers to the representative’s questions. It’s okay to be funny, but don’t be flippant. Humor can be a great ice breaker and can help you feel less nervous, but be sure to try to include some depth to your answers as well.
