Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Pana District Curriculum
The Illinois Learning Standards curriculum is rigorous and competitive. In math classes, students learn how the math works and take on projects that help them understand its application, rather than just memorizing formulas. They take the time to understand the math so that they have a firm foundation in mathematics on which to build. In history classes, they read a variety of documents in varying forms. They study the decisions of the past and try to understand how these lead to the present.
The literacy curriculum has been developed to support all areas of student learning. Students read both fiction and non-fiction in their language arts courses so that they can interpret the meaning or author's intent in a text. They also learn how to write, conduct academic research, and communicate their ideas in each subject of the curriculum. Teachers must be highly-trained and committed to work on this level, the Pana Community Unit School District believes in supporting its teachers to ensure this.

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: Private Universities
The name of the game for private universities is customer service and making sure that each student have access to everything they need to be a successful student. As tuition costs skyrocket, these schools have had to put more work into individualizing student experience in order to justify that price tag. They might accomplish this through having state-of-the-art facilities, both for education and for student life, and they might accomplish this by having strong, hands-on support services. Often, it’s a combination of the two. Private universities are always building new buildings, expanding old buildings, overhauling student centers and dining halls, and trying to find innovative ways to help students learn.
