Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Mattoon District Curriculum
Students should be able to read for comprehension and synthesize different readings. Students should be able to utilize various research techniques to collect, organize, analyze, and retain information. Students should also be able to use critical and analytical thinking to solve problems across the curriculum and transfer their acquired knowledge to real-life experiences. Students should have an understanding of technology and be able to use that and various other resources effectively and efficiently.
The hope is that students will take responsibility for their own learning in order to develop a lifelong love of learning which will help them become globally competitive. Students should demonstrate a commitment to make and exceed learning goals and evaluate their own progress. Furthermore, Mattoon High School believes in collaboration and diversity and strives to produce students who treat themselves and others respectfully. Students should be able to achieve their goals in a group setting while acting respectfully.

Mattoon District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The curriculum used in the district is based on the belief that all students should develop certain basic facilities and skills by the time the leave high school. Students should be able to use key skills and knowledge throughout the curriculum, whether it be in math or English language arts classes. History and science are also taught by providing students with fundamentals in the subject-area learning process and then following along key strands, or themes, that are central to the subject.
We currently cover the following Mattoon-area school district: Mattoon Community Unit School District 2.

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: College vs. University
There are several differences between a college and a university, but mostly they are superficial. The major difference is the way each is organized. Universities are organized into “colleges,” sometimes called schools, which tend to have a specific educational focus. A university might have a College of Business or Science, which tend to even have their own buildings. Colleges, on the other hand, don’t have this organization, and classes for different majors might exist in the same building more frequently. Universities tend to be larger, which is why they need the increased organization, though some are quite small. State schools tend to be universities. Either can be public of private. Either can offer any number of majors. Colleges are perceived as being more prestigious, but this isn’t always the case, either; consider that the University of Pennsylvania is an Ivy League school and one of the oldest in the country.
