Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Yorkville District Curriculum
Because the Common Core is internationally benchmarked, students will be well-prepared to explore post-secondary education and careers. In humanities classes, students learn to read for comprehension as well as synthesizing different ideas from multiple readings. Students write analytical essays, using a variety of resources and technology to gather information. Students are expected to be effective communicators, which means observing attentively, speaking and listening effectively, and writing clearly and expressively.
In math and science classes, students are taught to use critical and analytical thinking to solve problems. The focus is on essential concepts which are instilled in depth throughout the year, giving students a solid foundation with which to explore more complex ideas. By doing this, students develop logical and quantitative reasoning skills that they will use in problem-solving.

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.

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: College Resumes
The purpose of a resume is to provide a 1-page, easily readable list of a student’s extra-curricular activities. Though resumes can have different formats, they should all include similar information. At the top, usually centered, students place their names, address, contact information, and grade point average. Below that, on the left-hand side, students should create four or five sections of activities. These can range from Leadership Activities to Work Experience to Volunteering or Community Service. Sports, Clubs, and even Travel Abroad are possible sections, but remember that the purpose of a resume isn’t to fill a page; it’s to make the student stand out. Therefore, everything included on the resume should demonstrate certain qualities of the student. Clubs are good because they demonstrate involvement, but clubs that have promoted community service, for example, are better, or being a leader or founder of a club are even better.
