Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Plainfield District Curriculum
In Mathematics, the curriculum emphasizes a focus on key concepts in depth, so that students delve deeply into select important, fundamental concepts, rather than broadly covering many. Beginning at the elementary level, the curriculum covers basic concepts such as numeric operations, shape recognition, algebraic patterning, and probability, so that students master the foundations of mathematics before moving onto more advanced topics in middle and high school.
In English Language Arts, the curriculum places emphasis on reading nonfiction and complex texts, as opposed to novels and poetry, and writing analytic essays as opposed to creative writing. Students develop their abilities to gather information from reading, build arguments based on that information, and use evidence to back their claims while also expanding their vocabularies. By emphasizing these elements, students become critical readers and strong writers.

Plainfield District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The curriculum followed has a clear set of expectations for what students should know at the end of each grade level and requires that all students meet similarly high standards. The focus is on skills that students need to succeed in college and the professional world, and because the Common Core is comprised of learning objectives consisting of the skills, concepts, and critical thinking processes students need in their future, the hope is that students will be well equipped to compete in a global economy.
We currently cover the following Plainfield-area school district: Plainfield Community Consolidated School District.

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: SAT vs. ACT
The SAT and ACT are standardized tests which are used to determine how prepared a student is for college-level work. The SAT is the older test, mostly used on the east coast; the ACT was developed to counteract certain regional biases back in the 50’s and is mostly used by southern and Midwestern schools, but colleges will take either. There are several differences between the two, some subtle and some more profound. The ACT includes a science section, for example, and the math tends to be a little more challenging for students. The SAT begins with an essay, whereas the ACT ends with it. Actually, the essay on the ACT is optional, but colleges want the version with the essay, so there’s no real reason not to do the essay. In terms of the approach, the ACT is an achievement test which measures what students have learned, whereas the SAT is more of an aptitude test, though it should be noted that students with different learning styles traditionally fare better on the ACT. Finally, the SAT counts off for wrong answers, whereas the ACT does not.
