Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Mokena District Curriculum
Students are expected to be collaborative workers who treat themselves and others with respect, work within a variety of groups to achieve their goals, and accept constructive criticism within the group while managing and evaluating their own behavior as a group member. Students take responsibility for themselves and their own learning. They are expected to demonstrate ethical behavior in all situations and accept responsibility for their actions. Students should make positive choices for their own physical and emotional health as well as being respectful of others.
Just as students act responsibly towards themselves and others, they should also exercise the rights and responsibilities of citizenship and participate in community service. By participating in community-centered outreach efforts, students not only learn how to be active in their community, but also develop some of the project planning and pre-professional skills, thereby giving them the chance to recognize their unique talents.

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: Choosing a College
Choosing a college can be a confusing and arduous process. Colleges bombard high school students with emails, letters, flyers, and information, but it’s important to remember that this information is presented with an agenda. Colleges are, after all, trying to entice “customers” to “purchase their products,” or, to put it another way, they are trying to attract students. Without an understanding of the marketing tactics colleges use, students might be overwhelmed. Think about the messages colleges are trying to send; when looking at a poster created by a college admissions office, think about what it truly says about the college: this is how they’re marketing themselves. Of course they’re going to “put their best foot forward.” This isn’t necessarily a bad thing because it can give students insight into the programs the college promotes, and ones it doesn’t promote. With the rising costs of college, prospective students have to be conscientious consumers. They are investing in their futures, after all.
