Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Steger District Curriculum
The Math curriculum begins by introducing numeracy and opeations, algebraic patterns and relationships, shapes and measurement, and ratios and proportions. These skills are reviewed each year and students learn increasingly complex problem-solving techniques. They are expected to attend to precision, show their work and communicate their math thinking, and become able to recognize the best way to solve various math problems. They are also expected to understand how math is applied in daily life.
The English language arts framework provides objectives in reading, writing, language and vocabulary, media literacy, communication skills, and research skills. The reading objectives detail different skills that students will learn to interpret literary works and to understand non-fiction texts. These foundational skills are some of the most important as students will use them throughout their education. The writing curriculum has broadened its scope and requires that students learn to write for creative and analytic purposes.

Steger District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Elementary School District #194 and Bloom Township High School District 206 both follow the Illinois Learning Standards (ILS) as the curricular framework for teaching and learning. The ILS details the skills, concepts, and critical thinking strategies that students should develop each year. They follow along the major strands of the topics which are central to the subject, such as operations, algebra, geometry and measurement, and data analysis in Math. The subjects integrate these topics during the early years and then allow more in-depth, complex study of them during high school.

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: Demonstrated Interest
Demonstrated interest means showing the college that you really want to attend, in a tangible way. This can be accomplished in several ways. Applying, of course, demonstrates interest, but applying in certain ways can demonstrate more, like applying early or using a restrictive application. Visiting a college demonstrates interest, and it’s one of the most basic and necessary ways of doing so. Interviews, likewise, can demonstrate a lot of interest. Communication with the application committee can demonstrate interest, as can attending events and meeting with representatives. Of course, every college is different, but many colleges say that they pay attention to things like this, and demonstrated interest can do a lot for a person.
