Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Minooka District Curriculum
The hope is that graduates will possess the determination, knowledge, skills, and values necessary to accept social responsibility, succeed in today’s world, and meet future expectations. The school encourages its students to become lifelong learners prepared for the ever-changing global economy. These students are able to operate on a global level because they respect and appreciate diversity, accept personal responsibility, and pursue a sense of personal fulfillment.
Minooka High School follows the Illinois Common Core curriculum, which promotes critical thinking skills and hands-on, real-world applications of lessons. Mathematics classes focus on key concepts, which are studied in depth to ensure students have a firm foundation on which to build, before progressing to more difficult concepts. Science classes also focus on key concepts and maintain a study of the physical world and engineering, so that students are prepared to compete on a global level.

Minooka District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The districts in Minooka believe in providing a safe environment in which all students benefit. Opportunities for achievement are extended to all students, regardless of background, race, gender, or learning style, and though the school maintains a rigorous curriculum, interventions are applied when necessary. The schools strive to inspire and motivate their students with an educational experience that leads to achievement and success. Through the implementation of Common Core, students are exposed to a greater level of rigor in their core academics.

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: Recommendations
Most colleges require 1-3 recommendations for applicants, written by teachers the student has had during either their junior or senior year. These recommendations give specific insight into the student’s work ethic, attitude, intelligence, and various other essential qualities. They allow college admissions officers to get a true feel for the student and the impression they make. The fact that they are written by teachers with first-hand experience with the applicant carries a lot of weight, because the admissions committee is looking to find out how the student behaves in class. These recommendations are private, which means students never see them. Colleges feel that this privacy gives the teachers the freedom to be honest. Of course, a recommendation that seems unbalanced, either glowingly positive when nothing else in the application packet indicates this, or fiercely negative in a way that could come off as unprofessional, are usually ignored.
