Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Paris District Curriculum
The framework for science has been devised to prepare students for college and careers in the 21st century. The science standards are now founded on three principles: increasing STEM learning, educating students in the topics that cut across different fields of science, and ensure that fundamentals of each scientific topic are well understood. The shift to STEM means an increase in engineering and technology courses that help students see how the concepts they are learning about work in the real world.
The Math curriculum is founded on Common Core concepts that lays out objectives in each mathematical topic, such as numeracy, operational sense, geometry, algebra, data analysis and statistics, and then introduces students to each of these fields in an in-depth manner in high school. Elementary instruction in data analysis includes ratios and proportions and students having the ability to make reasonable statements about quantities. Mathematic literacy, and the ability to understand word problems, is also emphasized.

Paris District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
Paris High School District, Brookfield LaGrange Park School District, and Champaign Unit #4 School District follow the Illinois Learning Standards as their curricular framework. The Standards detail grade-level learning expectations in each subject according to its major topics. For instance, teaching in English Language Arts focuses on reading, writing, speaking and listening, media literacy, and conducting research. Comprehension and analysis skills are taught in these areas using increasingly complex texts and writing assignments that hone students critical analysis abilities.

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 vs. Early Action
There are advantages and drawbacks to every college application type. Early Decision (ED) and Early Action (EA) are two of the most popular types of application. They are both early with deadlines in November, usually. ED is binding, which means that students who apply ED agree to attend that college if accepted. This can have advantages, since colleges tend to favor ED, which leads to higher acceptance rates. But there can be drawbacks because it is binding, so even if a student gets a better offer elsewhere, they must attend this college. EA doesn’t have this drawback, but it isn’t favored as much as ED. It is still early, which means there are fewer other applicants to compete against, and it is still favored and generally lumped in with the ED pool, but it isn’t favored as much.
