Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Spring Grove District Curriculum
The Illinois Learning Standards curriculum gives detailed objectives for what students need to know and should be able to do at each grade level so they are ready to succeed in college and careers. Each year, students need to be able to draw on lessons from the past to understand more complex topics. The curriculum stresses more participatory and engaged learning in the classroom with less emphasis on scripted instruction and multiple choice tests. Students are also asked to apply and demonstrate their knowledge.
The math curriculum focuses on how each type of math is used in real world applications. For example, students practice applying mathematical ways of thinking to real world issues and challenges which prepares students to think and reason mathematically. They learn how to analyze quantitative data and construct mathematical models to predict outcomes. When students have the skills and knowledge needed in today’s job market, the hope is that our communities will be strong and competitive in the global economy.

Spring Grove District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The curriculum used in both the elementary and secondary districts follows the Illinois Learning Standards, which establish what students need to learn, but do not tell teachers how to teach. Teachers have the freedom to create lesson plans and tailor instruction to the unique needs of the students in their classroom. Teachers and school leaders determine how the standards are to be taught and establish the curriculum, allowing for flexibility and creativity in the classroom. There is an emphasis on Math and Language Arts, especially during the early years, and they are taught in a manner that the lessons relate to all other subject that students are taking.
We currently cover the following Spring Grove-area school districts: Nippersink School District 2 and Richmond Burton Community High School District 157.

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: Course List
Students should work closely with their guidance counselors in planning their course of study as their transcripts will be a part of their college application portfolio. Demonstrating the interest and ability in advanced courses helps a transcript to stand out. The transcript contains two key items: the earned grade point average (GPA) and the course list. This is a list of the classes the student took in high school. It’s important to consider these two items together. A student with a high GPA in relatively easy classes might appear misleadingly strong, whereas a student with a lower GPA in rigorous courses might appear weaker than s/he is. Of course, the best scenario is for a student to have rigorous courses and to do well in them, but this isn’t always possible.
