Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Montgomery District Curriculum
Students are taught to utilize various techniques, sources, and technology to gather research and to support their arguments effectively. Students use critical and analytical thinking to find solutions to problems and apply their learning to real-world, life experiences. Students are taught to be effective communicators, since communication is the key to future success. Students are taught to speak and write effectively as well as demonstrating good listening skills. Students learn to be versatile when using resources and technology and to manage their time effectively.
The West Aurora High School fosters an environment of safety, rigor, and support in which students are challenged individually according to their own strengths but also supported through intervention techniques intended to give each student the opportunity to succeed regardless of learning style, or any other differences. To that end, programs that support and enhance the general curriculum are available, as well as the opportunity to focus in on areas such as the arts and technology through elective courses.

Montgomery District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The curriculum strives to produce students who comprehend and utilize a core body of learning and skills across several curricula, whether it be humanities, mathematics, or science classes. Though the curriculum follows the Illinois Common Core Curriculum, teachers are given the freedom to differentiate their classes to meet each student’s needs. The overall goal is to encourage students to become lifelong learners who evaluate and guide their own learning beyond high school, whether they pursue post-secondary education or immediately enter the workforce.

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: The Benefits of a Good Night’s Sleep
Oftentimes, the night before a final, students will stay up late cramming. In the morning, when the student takes the test, s/he is a zombie and barely functions in other classes. The reality is that the students probably didn’t do as well on the final, either. Research has shown that a good night’s sleep benefits a student more than cramming. Taking a test while fresh, rested, and after a good breakfast ensures success much more than taking the test in a zombie state. This same research also shows that students don’t retain information as well when struggling with a sleep deficit. Studying over a longer period of time in increments and getting a good night’s sleep ensures that the brain processes information better. The simple fact is that the student will forget most of the information s/he “crams” into his/her brain, usually before even taking the test.
