Educating Our Parents: Understanding the O'Fallon District Curriculum
Curriculum in O’Fallon’s three districts promotes the long-term success of all of its students. In Communications Arts, early grades foster a love of reading and writing through a progression from letter recognition to context clues, journaling practice, and the keen development of listening skills. Middle to high school curricula build literary analysis skills and help students develop skills in thesis-based writing and argumentation.
Math curriculum builds early skills in number recognition, number sense skills, and problem solving. Geometry, algebra, statistics and calculus are offered in high school grades. At each level, the comprehensive math curriculum helps students build confidence in their math skills. Technology skills are honed throughout the grade strands, reinforcing critical college and career skills. Elective courses include art, computer exploration, music, and consumer sciences. French, German and Spanish are among the foreign language courses offered within the districts.

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: Medical Terminology – Learning How to Crack the Code
Doctors, nurses, medical technicians and other health science professionals know a secret code—the language of medicine. Deriving largely from Latin and Greek, the terms used in medicine and the health sciences can seem daunting. Long strings of letters can cause our brains to blip through them in a moment of pronunciation distress. Take the word 'pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis.' Touted by some as one of the longest words in English, its meaning can be deconstructed using the basics of medical terminology, as terms in medicine are constructed from root words. In this case, the root pneumo- relates to the lungs. Suffixes, which are modifiers found at the end of the word, describe the fundamental nature of the term. The suffix –osis means a condition or disease. So, we are dealing with a lung disease of some sort. Other modifying terms can be found within the word. One familiar term is “microscopic,” which means precisely what we might expect. Ultra adds another order of smallness magnitude. Finally, silico- and volcano- translate to a fine dust produced by volcanoes. The entire word translates to a lung disease caused known as black lung, and is common in mining communities.
