Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Algonquin District Curriculum
Students are taught to use critical and analytical thinking to solve problems and also evaluate and refine strategies for solving problems. The curriculum encourages students to become effective communicators who observe attentively, speak effectively, write clearly and expressively, and demonstrate good listening skills. Students are expected to be collaborative workers who treat themselves and others with respect.
Teachers are encouraged to give students the opportunity to transfer acquired knowledge to life experiences. Students are given the opportunity to demonstrate their commitment to establish, meet, and exceed goals in order to develop pride in themselves and their accomplishments. Students should be responsible individuals who demonstrate ethical behavior, accept responsibility for their actions, and make positive choices for physical and emotional health while remaining socially responsible citizens who demonstrate respect for all.

Algonquin District Curriculum Used in Our In-Home Tutoring Programs
The curriculum of the districts is intended to equip students for the future as knowledgeable people who understand and apply a core body of knowledge and skills across the curriculum and take responsibility for their own learning. Students should be capable of reading for comprehension and synthesis, using a variety of techniques, resources, and technology to gather information, and collecting, organizing, analyzing, and retaining information.

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: Common Application Benefits and Drawbacks
For students applying to several colleges, the sheer volume of applications can seem overwhelming. Much of the content of college applications is fairly basic and simple, but having to fill out ten of them can be a lot. The Common Application (common app.) attempts to solve this problem by providing one application that can be sent to several schools simultaneously. There are obvious benefits to this. Students write one major essay and only have to fill our one application, which saves time, and the common app. keeps track of deadlines, which also helps. But not every college accepts the common app. Many state schools don’t, and whereas their applications might be quite short, the common app. is fairly long. These schools also might not require an essay, whereas the common app. does. Also, some colleges require supplements, which can be a couple of extra questions or multiple essays.
