Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Tinley Park District Curriculum
The Science curriculum is based on the concept of creative exploration of the natural world as well as the inquiry process itself. The curriculum explores key concepts and principles of life sciences, physical science, and earth and space sciences, as well as issues of science, technology, and society in historical and contemporary contexts. The Language Arts curriculum emphasizes reading nonfiction texts, writing well-considered essays, and working with complex texts in order to help students develop their abilities in all subjects.
The Mathematics curriculum emphasizes key concepts and encourages teachers to plumb a greater depth of instruction on fewer topics within a school year in order to more fully explore those topics. Beginning at the elementary school level, the curriculum emphasizes basic concepts such as algebraic patterning or rudimentary geometry so that students master the foundations of mathematics before moving onto more advanced topics in high school.

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: Standardized Testing vs. Transcripts
Which is more important: transcripts or standardized tests? Many colleges and universities promote holistic reading of college applications. This means they read everything they receive when considering whether to accept an applicant. This may well be true, but the simple fact is that some elements of a student’s application carry more weight than others. Similarly, some students think that SAT or ACT scores are the most important part of an application, but the truth is, the transcript is the most important element. The transcript is a record of the student’s class performance, class selection, and possibly even sports and extracurricular activities throughout all of high school. A high score on a standardized test can certainly help a student gain admittance to a college, but the transcript still demonstrates that student’s accomplishments to a more profound degree. It’s more important that a student performs well consistently in classes than test well on one day.
