Educating Our Parents: Understanding the North Aurora District Curriculum
Students are taught to read for comprehension and synthesis; collect, organize, and retain research; use critical and analytical thinking to solve problems, and back up their theses with strong, well-researched evidence. Writing and verbal communication are also emphasized. Students should be able to write effectively but also listen effectively and work within groups to achieve their goals. Students should treat themselves and others with manage and evaluate their own behaviors.
Responsibility is stressed, and students are expected to demonstrate ethical behavior at all times, whether it be accepting responsibility for their actions or demonstrating positive choices for physical and emotional health. Students are given many opportunities to participate in character education exercises and community service. Students are also taught to demonstrate respect for others who might seem different to them, which will help them be effective communicators and workers on a global level.

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: Which Is Better: An A in a Regular Class, or a B in an Honors Cass?
asked. The normal answer is to get an A in an Honors class, but that’s harder to do than it sounds. The simple truth is that there might be a great deal of difference between an Advanced Placement (AP) or Honors class and a regular section. The pace is often much faster, as is the workload. So getting a B in such a class can hold a lot of weight. Of course, if it’s an AP class, the student’s score on the AP exam is what will really matter. But don’t be discouraged; getting an A in a regular section is no laughing matter. It shows commitment and hard work, and colleges recognize that. But, if you can earn an A in a regular class than it may be advisable to be seeking more challenging learning opportunities.
