Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Oak Brook District Curriculum
The Common Core Standards in English Language Arts require that when students start high school they are able to analytically read and comprehend literary and informational texts. They are expected to cite textual evidence, determine central ideas and themes, and analyze how an author builds upon supporting evidence to make their point. They also need to recognize the role of language and vocabulary, and how certain word choices point to an author's intent. In addition, they should be able to recognize how ideas connect across texts.
The Common Core Standards in Math use the elementary and middle school years to introduce students to a wide range of concepts in numerical operations, algebraic relationships, geometry and measurement, and proportions and statistics. In high school, major expectations are broken down by Number Systems, Algebra, Functions, Modeling, Geometry, and Statistics and Probability. Quantitative reasoning, an understanding of computational tools, and the ability to determine the best way to solve a problem are overarching goals of the Math standards.

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: Early Action
Early Action (EA) is a type of college application. It’s early, with a due date in November, usually. It’s not binding, which means that students apply without any restrictions or obligations; they’re free to attend whatever college they wish. Because it’s early, EA has a higher acceptance rate, and students are competing against fewer other applicants. Acceptance rates aren’t as high as Early Decision, but they are higher than Regular Decision. The only real difference between EA and Regular Decision is the due date, and the fact that EA applicants will probably have received their decision before Regular Decision applications have even been finished. Still, without the restrictions and obligations of some other application types, EA is a great choice for many applicants.
