Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Orland Hills District Curriculum
The Math curriculum focuses on the topics of numeracy, algebra, geometry, and data analysis to give students a strong basis in problem-solving. The general curriculum outcomes include being able to understand the best way to solve different problems, strong mathematical literacy and quantitative reasoning skills, the ability to defend and explain mathematical reasoning, an understanding of computational tools, and the ability to create mathematical models to assist in problem-solving.
The Science curriculum emphasizes the integrated fields of science, technology, engineering and math, and there is a push toward STEM learning that teaches the skills of each in an integrated fashion. Students work on engineering design challenges and learn about topics in bio-technology. This study of science allows them to look at aspects of their careers, or education, after graduation in different ways. Students who go through the program may be interested in having careers such as engineers, statisticians, biochemists, and coders.

Orland Hills District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Both Kirby School District and the Consolidated High School District 230 follow the Illinois Learning Standards for core academics. The Illinois Learning Standards provide a comprehensive series of objectives which detail what students are expected to know and be able to do each year. They build along major topics or themes in a subject so that by the time students are in high school they have the background to do advanced work in each topic. Students are also expected to be able to integrate areas of knowledge and develop independence in their learning, and so have more options at the high school to prepare themselves for college and career.

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 Decision
One of the most popular application types for college has become Early Decision (ED). Early Decision is different from Regular Decision in a couple ways. One, it has an early deadline, usually November 1st, whereas Regular Decision might be December 1st or even later, with some colleges setting it as late as February. Second, Early Decision is binding, which means that upon applying, students sign a contract saying they agree to attend this college if accepted, regardless of whether they’re accepted to a different college or even get a better offer elsewhere. Some might see this as a drawback, but colleges tend to favor students who are willing to make this commitment, and Early Decision applications tend to have a higher acceptance rate than Regular Decision.
