Educating Our Parents: Understanding the North Riverside District Curriculum
The Illinois Learning Standards guide learning from elementary through high school based on major strands in each subject. For instance, in Language Arts, students develop reading comprehension skills, writing abilities, and verbal communication skills each year so that as they move on they are able to do each at a more analytic level. In Math, students are introduced to numerical operations, pattern relations, shapes and measurement, and ratios so that they are prepared for advanced study in algebra, geometry, and statistics.
The school believes all students should be given opportunities to succeed, regardless of their learning needs. Students are given clear expectations for what they should learn by the end of each year in each class, and they are also given clear expectations for behavior. They are expected to develop independence in their learning. Students are expected to make healthy choices regarding themselves and their interaction with others. The school strives to educate students not only academically but holistically, so that they are healthy and wise.

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: Community College
Community, or junior, colleges are two-year, public colleges with open enrollment, which means that anyone who has a high school transcript or GED can enroll. Community colleges tend to only offer general education classes typically offered during the freshman and sophomore year at more 4-year colleges, though some have expanded to offer more advanced classes. There are a few public universities that work in tandem with community colleges to offer these advanced classes from the junior and senior year, and some even offer a few graduate classes, though this is rare. Community colleges are appealing because they tend to cost a tenth, or less, what even public universities cost. They also offer smaller class sizes and flexible schedules, and most have reciprocity set up so that transferring to a 4-year college to complete a degree is easy.
