Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Oak Park District Curriculum
The Language Arts curriculum is centered around a workshop-based program where students participate in different aspects of a balanced literacy system. During Reading Workshop students will first participate in a whole group lesson that focuses on a certain skill or strategy and involves demonstration from the teacher. Students then move on to Independent Reading where the teacher has a chance to conference with students one-on-one. There is also a Writer’s Workshop component to the curriculum that is ran in a similar manner.
The Math curriculum uses the Everyday Math program which is a spiraling system in which students are exposed to different standards in varying degrees. Teachers use a multitude of strategies with this program including games, real-world scenarios, and journal equations. In high school, Honors and Advanced Placement courses offer students a more rigorous curriculum with college-level work and the chance to earn credit that will transfer to a university.

Oak Park District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs

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.

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: Summer Field Trips
School may be out for the summer, but the learning doesn’t have to stop. Take the time to go on some family field trips that will double as fun and educational. Science museums are a great option because they have something for everyone and usually have hands-on activities. To make it even more educational, look up your student’s grade level Science standards and make sure you visit those areas of the museum. If you don’t have a Science museum close by, you can always turn your backyard into one. You can spend the day learning about the plants and insects you find, or even plant your own garden. Another good option is to visit local historic sites as a Social Studies field trip. If you happen to have several historical sites near you, make a tour out of it as you try to visit each one. Educational summer trips will not only keep your student’s brain active, but will make for great family memories as well.
