Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Markham District Curriculum
The curriculum of draws from the Illinois Common Core Standards in English, humanities, and math. Science classes follow the Next Generation Science Standards. The purpose of these internationally referred and researched standards is to ensure that all students receive a strong, competitive education with many opportunities to succeed. In all high school subjects, the content vocabulary in the classes will be more numerous and difficult compared to that of elementary school and middle school. Students will also have to perform various assessments including more lengthy essays and project-based assessments.
Emphasis is placed on critical thinking skills, analytical writing, and real-world applications of lessons. It is hoped that students will take an interest in their own learning and will become life-long learners who are self-guided and engaged in the world around them.

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: Financial Aid Tips
The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the first step in applying for financial aid. Even if a student doesn’t want loans, most colleges base their aid packages on the information they receive from the FAFSA. But this is just the beginning of the process. The most important thing is to be in contact with the financial aid department at the college of interest for several reasons. One, they may have information or insight into other financial aid options. Two, if there’s a problem such as a gap between the amount offered and the amount needed, it’s important to have an established relationship to try to work this out. Maybe there’s an aspect of the situation that the FAFSA didn’t deal with, like a change in income, for example. At very least, the financial aid department can help work out payment plans to ensure that the student’s education isn’t interrupted.
