Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Vernon Hills District Curriculum
In English language arts and humanities classes, students focus on reading complex nonfiction texts, gathering, analyzing, and presenting information through the writing of analytic response and persuasive essays. Students are expected to be good listeners, good readers, and good writers. In mathematics and science classes, students focus on key topics which lay the foundations they will need to build upon for more complex and difficult learning later. The focus is on real-world applications of problems and lessons.
Students are encouraged to develop an ability to think critically and solve problems, to communicate effectively, and to appreciate and demonstrate creativity. The overall goal is for students to develop a life-long desire to pursue knowledge and to prepare students for post-secondary educational opportunities and the working world. The curriculum is internationally competitive so students are prepared to enter a global economy.

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: Financial Aid Facts
Financial Aid is a tricky thing because there are so many options. There are a multitude of scholarships available through organizations, businesses, foundations, and the like. These tend to be rather small, and are difficult to find. Many of them are discovered through word of mouth. One good source is colleges’ financial aid departments. Websites like Fastweb help, also, but one possible drawback to keep in mind is that some colleges will deduct these scholarships from the student’s aid package. Depending on the college, sometimes much of the “aid” offered is really just loans. There are two types of loan: subsidized and unsubsidized. Subsidized loans are ones for which the government pays the interest while the student is in college. Unsubsidized are ones for which the government does not pay the interest, so interest accrues over the course of four years. These loans can be prohibitive to students in the long term—even seemingly small loans add up over four years, though a truly small loan can be useful in helping a student establish credit.
