Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Peoria Heights District Curriculum
The Illinois Learning Standards curriculum is strong and provides learning objectives that prepare students for competitive college and career opportunities. Students are given clear expectations for what they should learn by the end of each school year, and teachers are given the flexibility to tailor their lessons to fit the specific needs of individual students, whether that means helping a student catch up to grade level or offering more advanced work to keep a high-performing student challenged.
The curriculum focuses on critical thinking skills, critical reading skills, analytical writing skills, and science and math literacy. Students learn about the process used by scientists to study a theory and how to formulate their findings. They also learn how to attend to precision in mathematical problem-solving. Students learn how to communicate effectively in both written and oral forms in a variety of formats. They learn to support their opinions using facts and evidence, which they learn to gather through research.

Peoria Heights District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Peoria Heights Community Unit School District follows the Illinois Learning Standards, a rigorous K-12 curriculum that uses a series of objectives to define what students should know and be able to do in each subject. The objectives call for students to learn a range of skills and concepts in each subject as well as the ability to think critically about what they are learning. They are also encouraged to find connections between different areas of learning to see how they connect. They are also assisted in developing a sense of independence in their learning so that they can self-direct their future learning experiences.
We currently cover the following Peoria Heights-area school district: Peoria Heights Community Unit School District 325.

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: Public University
There are many benefits to a public university that might not be obvious. Cost is the main one; because public universities are funded by the state, their tuition rates are much more affordable. In-state students get the largest discount, but even out-of-state students receive a much lower tuition rate than at most private colleges. Many public universities have very strong departments in fields that lead to higher-paying jobs, such as sciences, health care, and the like, so this can be a good option for students who have a clear plan for their futures. Because public universities tend to be larger, they also offer more options and opportunities, not just academically, but socially.
