Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Niles District Curriculum
Students read and evaluate nonfiction and complex texts for comprehension and synthesis, and write essays using a variety of techniques, resources, and technology to gather information. They are expected to collect, organize, analyze, and retain information. Students are encouraged to use critical and analytic thinking to solve problems, and apply acquired knowledge to life experiences. Students are expected to become effective communicators who write clearly and expressively, and speak effectively.
In Mathematics and Science classes, students focus on understanding and applying key concepts to real-world problems and situations. Students use critical thinking skills to observe and understand the world around them. Students are also expected to become responsible individuals who demonstrate ethical behavior, accept responsibility for their actions, and act according to the principles of socially responsible citizens who demonstrate respect for all.

Niles District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The schools follow the Illinois Common Core curriculum which is intended to instill a lifetime appreciation of learning in students and prepare them for post-secondary education and the work force in an increasingly global economy by encouraging them to take responsibility for their own learning. Students are expected to comprehend and utilize a core body of knowledge and skills throughout the curriculum. The curriculum also recognizes the importance of students interests and establishes objectives in popular subjects like the arts and technology that can help a student prepare for college work in those subjects.

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 Application Deadlines
Colleges usually have more than one deadline for applicants, and each deadline has a different use. Early deadlines, such as Early Action and Early Decision, are for very interested students who want to get their applications finished. These are highly competitive applications, but there are advantages to getting them done early; aside from the peace of mind of being finished, early applicants are competing against fewer other applicants. Most colleges will stagger these application dates through November and December. The Regular Decision deadline used to be December 1st for many colleges, but because of all of these early options, many colleges and universities have moved this dead line back to January, even February. The one hard and fast rule to remember about deadlines is that even though there are options for different ones, they do matter. Colleges will not consider your application if it isn’t submitted on time.
