Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Palos Hills District Curriculum
It is hoped that students will become life-long learners who are easily capable of using critical and analytical thinking to solve problems. In humanities classes, students read for comprehension and synthesis and gather evidence to support their claims. Students also become communicators capable of careful observation, effective communication, both written and spoken, aware of their audience, and able to demonstrate good listening skills.
Students are expected to become invested in their own education and demonstrate a commitment to establish, meet, and exceed goals and monitor their own progress through self-evaluation. In order to help prepare them for the future, students should also be able to use resources and technology effectively. To this end, career-oriented courses are available for students at the high school level so that they may specialize in areas they plan to pursue.

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: How Important Are Essays and Recommendations?
A student’s college application is a big pile of paper. Usually, there isn’t even a picture of the student to go along with it. It’s just paper and numbers and data. That means it’s really easy to get lost in the shuffle, which means it’s vitally important for applicants to differentiate themselves from other applicants. The transcript and test scores might make a student stand out, data-wise, but they don’t really humanize the student. That’s where essays come in. A college essay shouldn’t be a listing of accomplishments; rather, it should be an opportunity for the student to share his/her personality with the admissions staff. Humor, passion, maturity, and so many other positive qualities can be communicated through the college essay. Recommendation, likewise, give insight on the student that the student might not be able to share him/herself. Teachers will write about class performance but will also share personal qualities of the student which can help transform an applicant from a pile or paper to a human being.
