Educating Our Parents: Understanding the St. Charles District Curriculum
The Language Arts curriculum begins with a comprehensive scope, teaching young students to recognize letters, develop an eye for sentence structure, and practice basic text analysis. Reading, writing and listening skills are given top priority in early grades, paving the way for higher grade tasks. SAT and ACT test skills are practiced along with an application of that vocabulary to text analysis. Rhetorical devices and argumentative writing allow students to develop college-ready thinking, while expanding their own informed opinions.
Mathematics curricula in the district starts students out in the earliest grades with pattern recognition, number characteristic description, basic math operations. Algebra, geometry, statistics and calculus are among the upper level courses that the district offers, helping students view math as relevant to a wide array of disciplines. Vocational and creative electives such as art, music, technology and consumer sciences bring relevant skills to our students, while promoting individual interests.

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: What’s Hip?: A Short Lesson in Dinosaur Classification
What makes a dinosaur a dinosaur? These ancient creatures are classified by their skeletal characteristics, as their bones are the majority of what scientists have access to study. In dinosaurs, there are two major classes based on the special shape of their hips. It’s true! One hip group is known as the Saurischians (sore-ISK-ee-ans), or “reptile hips.” In these dinosaurs, hip bones angle toward the front and back in a triangular shape, providing attachment sites for big leg muscles. This group includes the long-necked, plant-eating sauropods (SORE-oh-pods) and the meat-eating theropods (THER-oh-pods). The second hip group is known as the Ornithischians (or-nith-ISK-ee-ans), or “bird hips.” These dinosaurs angle their hip bones backward to support big tails and make room for big plant-eating bellies. This group includes the duck-billed hadrosaurs (HAD-row-sores), horned ceratopsians (ser-ah-TOP-see-ans) and armored ankylosaurs (an-KYE-low-sores). Interestingly, the group of dinosaurs most closely related to birds is the “reptile hip” group; some Saurischian hips reverted to a backward-pointing, birdlike direction in special groups, like the family that includes meat-eater Velociraptor.
