Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Metropolis District Curriculum
In science classes, students study the natural world, how things are made, both organically and through engineering. They learn to evaluate things scientifically, to ask questions and do research to answer them in a controlled, scientific manner. They also learn how to communicate their scientific observations both verbally and through representations in graphs and charts. They eventually progress to more complex engineering questions and use the skills and knowledge they learned in real-world situations and applications.
In history and humanities classes, students study the decisions and actions of the past and how these have shaped the present, and in so doing, they become able to study the decisions and actions of the present in order to consider the future. Students read a variety of kinds of texts and learn to evaluate them in different ways. In conjunction with their reading assignments, they learn to write in a variety of formats. Overall, students graduate as competitive, capable individuals who are ready to face the challenges of the future.

SchoolTutoring Academy’s tutoring programs for Metropolis students start with a free academic assessment with an Academic Director.

Metropolis District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The schools attended by Metropolis students use the Illinois Learning Standards which provide detailed, grade-level objectives for all academic subjects. This means that students are held to high expectations for success, and faculty strive to make sure those expectations are met. In math classes, students study how and why the mathematical formulas work, so that students gain a stronger understanding of mathematics, rather than just memorizing formulas. Of course, they still have to memorize formulas, but now they also gain an understanding of how the formulas work in real world applications.
We currently cover the following Metropolis-area school district: Massac Unit #1.

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: Community College
Community colleges have gotten a bad rap in the past, but they are becoming more mainstream every day. One reason for the bad rap is that community colleges have an open enrollment policy, which means that anyone with a high school diploma, or equivalent, is eligible to attend. Part of the mystique of 4-year colleges and universities, in the past, has been their exclusivity, but with skyrocketing costs and less funding, the affordability of community colleges and public universities has changed many people’s minds. Also, community colleges are convenient. They offer flexible scheduling, with night and weekend classes, and even online classes, so not only can people actually afford to attend, they can find the time to attend while working.
