Educating Our Parents: Understanding the West Dundee District Curriculum
The Math curriculum contains strands that cover numeracy and operations, algebraic thinking, geometry and measurement, and data analysis. High school math curricula also provide for advanced courses like pre-Calculus and Trigonometry. Students learn a wide range of problem-solving techniques and how each type of math is used in real life applications. They also develop their mathematical literacy, ability to explain their quantitative reasoning, and an understanding of how best to solve different problems.
The English language arts curriculum integrates the topics of reading, writing, critical discussion, and research so that students are able to use these skills effectively. In reading, students become familiar with the differences in fiction and non-fiction and the different analytic and critical reading skills they apply to each. In writing, students learn to focus on a topic in writing—adding supporting details with suggestions from peers—and use digital tools to publish their work. They also learn research skills, with a focus on proper use and citation of others work.

West Dundee District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The Community Unit School District 300 uses the Illinois Learning Standards which incorporate Common Core goals. The Common Core Standards are defined for English language arts and math, and literacy expectations are intertwined in the other content areas. State-based standards for the other content areas are generally still used. Educational leaders developed Common Core partly by viewing models of success, including top-performing states and nations. This gives schools freedom, as there has been some concern over the whole country using the same standards considering students come from so many different backgrounds.
We currently cover the following West Dundee-area school district: Community Unit School District 300.

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: Choosing a College
There are many factors beyond academics that students need to consider when applying to college. Consider the living environment—is it a big city, a suburban town, or rural life? In what sorts of sports and clubs would you potentially want to be involved? Delineate the list into must-haves and things-I-could-do-without. No matter where you choose, remember that there may be more than one right choice. Public colleges are often larger than private ones because they must admit so many students to justify their funding, but this can also mean that they offer many majors for students. There’s no substitute for an on-campus experience. If you’ve already made a visit, a second one will help you focus in on each school’s best (and worst) features and will help you make your final decision.
