Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Stickney District Curriculum
The curriculum used in both districts focuses on critical thinking skills, analytical writing skills, science literacy, and mathematics skills. Students are challenged to read different types of texts in varying formats and are asked to respond with well-reasoned and supported essays. They are taught about the craft and structure of literature and the use of literary devices, and use this knowledge to support their interpretation of a text. They also learn how to properly cite and reference texts in their independent work.
In Science, students examine the natural world and lessons are focused on real-world applications. They learn important content knowledge and also the process of scientific inquiry and how hypotheses are proved or disproved. In math classes, students study concepts at a greater depth so they gain a better understanding of the concepts. They are required to learn mental math and also be able to describe their mathematical reasoning. The goal is to give students the skills they need to be competitive members of our global economy.

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 Applications
There are many types of college applications with various deadlines, but the reality is that most of them are the same, other than the deadlines. They all require a transcript and the application, itself, which is usually just biographical information. There’s usually an essay on the application, and many colleges will have several essays of varying lengths, with topics ranging from very general, “Why do you want to attend?” type prompts, to more specific ones having to do with the applicant’s background, experiences, etc. Most colleges require from one to three teacher recommendations. Some require a resume, and even if they don’t require it, it’s a useful tool. Not every college requires standardized test scores.
